The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
