The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Consider the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Authority sell a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
