The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require 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 complete bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Point Loma Pet Pantry stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
