The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Scratch and Sniff Pet Supplies stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
