The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for 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.
Consider the reality 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 really need coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal 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 nice and looking excellent.
