The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea 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 evident why you really need coat products that are created to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
