The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes obvious why you should have coat products that are designed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Healthy Pet Products, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's vital to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Healthy Pet Products in Pittsburgh. Stop in or give us a call at (412) 366-0700 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
