The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
