The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider the reality 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 evident why you have to have coat products that are developed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
