The Importance of Finding 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 developed 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are developed to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Scoop Feed & Supply sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
