The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could 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 specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very 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 obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Filling Station Pet Supplies stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
