The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the reality your dog 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 quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are developed to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at City Dogs Grocery sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
