The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Take into consideration the idea that your dog 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 handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Healthy Pet Store Aurora, 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 an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats need the best kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Healthy Pet Store Aurora in Aurora. Stop in or give us a call at (630) 851-5187 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
