The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even 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, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Fido's Market sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
