The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
