The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 require 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.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are made to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Perk Valley Pet Eatery, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Perk Valley Pet Eatery in Trappe. Drop in or give us a call at (610) 454-0045 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
