The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require 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 full bath.
Think of the fact 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 quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Chow Down Pet Supplies stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Perfect Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
