The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Scratch and Sniff Pet Supplies stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
