The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, 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 made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Scratch and Sniff Pet Supplies sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
