The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea 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 patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
