The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
