The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Odyssey Pets stock a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
