The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be enticed 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At All About Dogs & Cats, we offer a range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. 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 exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at All About Dogs & Cats in Springfield.
