The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are developed to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
