The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Perk Valley Pet Eatery stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
