The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be tempted 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you should have coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Mystic Pet Shop, we offer a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Mystic Pet Shop in Mystic.
