The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers.
