The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
