The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
