The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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 full 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at City Dogs Grocery stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
