The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for 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.
Think of the reality your dog 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 obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Authority sell a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
