The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for 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 full bath.
Consider 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, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Perk Valley Pet Eatery stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
