The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider the fact your dog 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 quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Critters & Me stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
