The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could 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 require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 full bath.
Think of the reality 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 manufactured to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Perk Valley Pet Eatery stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats demand using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Perk Valley Pet Eatery in Trappe Drop in or give us a call at (610) 454-0045 number] to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has.
