The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea 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 quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
