The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
