The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Mystic Pet Shop stock a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
