The Importance of Picking the Right 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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct 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 full bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Pet's General Store, we offer a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Pet's General Store in Lakewood. Stop in or give us a call at (216) 226-0886 to discuss the type of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
