The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
