The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Filling Station Pet Supplies stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
