The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed 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 require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws & Fins Pet Shop sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
