The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Pet Aurora sell a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
