The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed 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 require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of 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, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petropolis sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
