The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Highland Pets sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Highland Pets in Highland Drop in or give us a call at (248) 714-8169 number] to discuss the type of coat and certain issues your dog has.
