The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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.
Consider 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 apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate 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 nice and looking fantastic.
