The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Think about the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of 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 fantastic.
