The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
