The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require 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.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at All Pet & Equine Supply stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
