The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
