The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. sell a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
