The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact 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 spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
