The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Think of the reality 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 really need coat products that are made to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
