The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Think about the fact your dog is highly 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 evident why you have to have coat products that are created to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
