The Importance of Finding the Right 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 particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you should have coat products that are developed to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Fangs & Fur, we stock a variety 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 crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the right 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 Fangs & Fur in Columbus. Stop in or give us a call at (614) 947-7311 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
