The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
