The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers 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 garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws & Fins Pet Shop stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
