The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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 complete bath.
Think of the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Dog Gone Holistic, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need 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 experts at Dog Gone Holistic in Lithia. Drop in or give us a call at (813) 651-0842 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
