The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you should have coat products that are developed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Cared For Canine & Cat, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies 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 crucial to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the best type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Cared For Canine & Cat in Southern Pines. Drop in or give us a call at (910) 693-7875 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.
