The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At All Pet & Equine Supply, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats require the right type of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at All Pet & Equine Supply in West Plains. Drop in or give us a call at (417) 257-7975 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
