The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need to have coat products that are created to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At The Feed Bag, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at The Feed Bag in Old Saybrook. Drop in or give us a call at (860) 388-5618 to discuss the type of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
The owner, Tricia, knows literally just about any question you can ask her. She's has so much knowledge in her brain that you'd think she was much older than she is. She is just such a wealth of information, suggestions, and recommendations and tries hard to help her customers with all there many questions. I enjoy her store and she has just about everything the big stores have. Her prices are right in line with other pet stores in town. She is a nice lady and is always pleasant. She has helped me out many times, and she asks how things are going? Most of all, I trust her with my pups life. That says it all! Thanks, Tricia
