The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Consider the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petropolis sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
