The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are developed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
