The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 specific 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 complete bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is very 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 need coat products that are developed to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
