The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate 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 products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
