The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Fifi & Fidos Pet Boutique stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
