The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you should have coat products that are manufactured to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Wishbone Pet Care, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
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 right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. 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 uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Wishbone Pet Care in Sugar Land. Stop in or give us a call at (281) 242-7297 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
