The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider 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, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Chow Down Pet Supplies stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
