The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be tempted 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Nature's Feed, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the best type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Nature's Feed in Spring Grove. Drop in or give us a call at (815) 675-2008 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
