The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
