The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured 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 of 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, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are manufactured to address these challenges. 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 complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and call for the lightest of touches.
