The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your dog 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 quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made 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 sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
