The Importance of Picking 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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 fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Authority sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
