The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at J-B Pet Supplies sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
