The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured 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 require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
