The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
