The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Moore Equine Feed & Pet Supply, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
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 appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Moore Equine Feed & Pet Supply in Southern Pines. Drop in or give us a call at (910) 692-2385 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
