The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws & Fins Pet Shop stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
