The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 certain 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 full bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very 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 really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
