The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
