The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed 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 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 complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Critters & Me sell a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
