The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for 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 complete bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
