The Importance of Finding the Proper 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are created to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Moore Equine Feed & Pet Supply stock a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches.
