The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 certain 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.
Think about the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store sell a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
