The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
