The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 of the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
