The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could 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 particular 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.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Animal Connection sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
