The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 of the reality 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 spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Moore Equine Feed & Pet Supply stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
