The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 full bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is very 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 apparent why you really need coat products that are made to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry Yakima sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
