The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 complete 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 obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Pet Pantry, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats require the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Pet Pantry in Harbor Springs. Drop in or give us a call at (231) 526-7160 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
