The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 require 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.
Consider the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Food Market stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
