The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might 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 special hair and skin needs that require 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 complete bath.
Think about the idea 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 rapidly becomes evident why you need coat products that are created to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Filling Station Pet Supplies sell a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
