The Importance of Choosing the Right 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Think about the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
