The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pure Pet sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
