The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile sell a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
