The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at GiGi's Pet Market sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct kind 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 demand 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 GiGi's Pet Market in Jupiter Drop in or give us a call at (561) 747-4444 number] to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has.
