The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
