The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Consider the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Muttigans stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need using the right type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand 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 Muttigans in Emerald Isle Drop in or give us a call at (252) 354-3410 number] to discuss the type of coat and certain issues your dog has.
