The Importance of Finding the Best 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 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 distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at All American Pet stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
