The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require 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 full bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Roo's Holistic Pet Supplies, 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 important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Roo's Holistic Pet Supplies in Muncie. Stop in or give us a call at (765) 760-7905 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
