The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of 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 excellent.
