The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
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 evident why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
