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 challenge 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 particular 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.
Think about 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, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
