The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might 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 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 full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Highland Pet Company stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
