The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 pooch 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 evident why you need coat products that are developed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bruce & Willy's Natural Pet Source stock a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
