The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, 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 manufactured to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry & Dog Wash sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
