The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your dog 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 rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Everything But The Dog stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
