The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Flying M Feed & Pet Grocery stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
