The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners 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 patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are developed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Mystic Pet Shop sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
