The Importance of Selecting the Right 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 developed 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 even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Critters & Me stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
