The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Flying M Feed & Pet Grocery sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
