The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea 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 apparent why you need coat products that are developed to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct 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 satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
