The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct 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.
Consider the idea your dog 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 rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry Yakima stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
