The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are developed to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
