The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes obvious why you should have coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Pet Pantry, we stock a range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop 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 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 particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
