The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be tempted 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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Ann-imals Pet Supply Store, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent 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 unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store in York. Stop in or give us a call at (207) 351-2777 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
