The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are manufactured to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Authority stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
