The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Critters & Me stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
