The Importance of Picking the Right 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
