The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 certain 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 very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply stock a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
