The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 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.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Authority stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
