The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Earth Pets Natural Pet Market Gainesville, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the best type of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. 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 Earth Pets Natural Pet Market Gainesville in Gainesville. Stop in or give us a call at (352) 331-5123 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
