The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 complete bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Holistic For Pets stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats call for using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury.
