The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Pure Pet, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Pure Pet in Carbondale. Drop in or give us a call at (618) 490-1222 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
