The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Fifi & Fidos Pet Boutique, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the correct kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require 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 Fifi & Fidos Pet Boutique in San Antonio.
