The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Z Bones Pet Mercantile sell a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
