Well, it is because dogs have different skin types just like human skin types differ from each other. The dog can experience skin irritation because the human shampoo has a pH that is lower than what the dog’s skin needs.
So here are some steps to take when choosing a dog shampoo that is appropriate for your beloved dog:
o Look at your dog’s skin and try to determine his or her skin type. If you notice any skin flaking, then your dog most likely has dry skin. The shampoo that is chosen should be an all natural shampoo that is specific to the skin type that your dog has. If your dog has an issue with fleas and ticks, then an all natural dog shampoo that is designed to eliminate fleas and ticks should be your choice. Some dog shampoos can irritate a skin condition. If the dog doesn’t have a skin condition, a shampoo containing Aloe Vera should make your pup feel better and scratch less. If the issue is more severe, a medicated shampoo may be needed.
The scents can irritate a dog’s skin. So be vigilant and ask your vet if you have any questions about your dog’s skin and what shampoos you should use.
