The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Feed Bag stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
