The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might 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 require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at All Pet & Equine Supply sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
