The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
