The Importance of Selecting the Proper 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 full bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
