The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea your dog 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 quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
