The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
