The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Highland Pets stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
