The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Critters & Me sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
