The Importance of Picking the Perfect 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for 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 full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
