The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get 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 problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry & Dog Wash stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
