The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
