The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require 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 reality your pooch is highly 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 deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Chow Down Pet Supplies stock a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
