The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration 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, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Filling Station Pet Supplies stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
