The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch 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 obvious why you have to have coat products that are developed to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
