The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured 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 special hair and skin needs that require 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
