The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted 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 particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
