The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Flying M Feed & Pet Grocery stock a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
