The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 full bath.
Take into consideration the reality 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 apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
