The Importance of Picking 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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ma & Paws Pet Supplies sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
