The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 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.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it soon becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Liz's Pet Shop, we offer a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Liz's Pet Shop in Chicago. Drop in or give us a call at (773) 772-4011 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
