The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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 full bath.
Take into consideration the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Muttigans stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
