The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry Yakima sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
