The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you should have coat products that are created to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Pets Etc., we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Pets Etc. in Plainfield. Stop in or give us a call at (815) 439-1919 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
