The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 call for 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.
Take into consideration the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
