The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components 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.
