The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, 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 manufactured to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at City Dogs Grocery sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
