The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 developed 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.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the correct kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Buckles Feed Depot & Pet Supply in Lafayette. Drop in or give us a call at (765) 742-7500 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
