If you thought using a human shampoo on your dog is totally acceptable, you are mistaken! Dogs and humans have a totally different hair and skin type and using human shampoo on your dog can totally harm the gentle hair and skin texture of your pooch.

Human skin is three times thicker than a dog’s skin. Which is why even a baby shampoo is not safe as that can too disturb the delicate pH balance of your pooch’s skin. Dog shampoos are formulated with salicylic acid, menthol, colloidal oatmeal, aloe or hydrocortisone to relieve itching and other skin allergies. The high content of lactic acid and glycerin helps to relieve itchy, dry and sensitive skin. Such ingredients are rarely found in a human shampoo.

So invest in a proper dog shampoo for your pooch that is formulated just for pets to keep their hair glossy, shiny and hair-fall free!
