The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your pooch is very 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 evident why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
