The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very 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 have to have coat products that are designed to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Perk Valley Pet Eatery sell a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
