The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Food Market stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
