The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Pet Pantry, we offer a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's vital to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain 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 kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
