The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Nature's Feed stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
