The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are manufactured to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
