The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Take into consideration the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition, we stock a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition in Flossmoor. Stop in or give us a call at (708) 922-2910 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
