The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 require 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.
Think about the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Feed Bag stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
