The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
