The Importance of Choosing the Best 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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws & Fins Pet Shop stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
