The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
