The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are created to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Z Bones Pet Mercantile, we stock a range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
