The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 distinct 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.
Consider the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Nature's Feed stock a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
