i bought puppy-shampoo , but paris is allergic to it .....so my vet suggested i would use baby-shampoo . i even got the anti-allergie baby-shampoo from nivea.
i don't see why it could harm our puppy's :wink:

I use baby shampoo, i have dog shampoo but for a quick going over i just use johnsons. I also have wipes, that are good. I know about the horse shampoo - i have 6 horses and the shampoo can be expensive for horse seen as though you need more because they have a larger body to cover! lol Do you have horses? :)

I have used baby shampoo before alot with rescue dogs. Some puppies come in with bad skin and baby shampoo and baby oil cream will do wonders for a puppies coat. Anything that is safe for a baby is safe for puppies/dog's. I Helped in a vet's office for a year and Dr. Ward always told people to use baby shampoo to help out an older dogs coat.

Now I am confused - I have heard and read that human shampoo (even baby shampoo) is not good to use on dogs. Don't even remember where I read this now - so is it O.K. to use or not? Just wondering. I use puppy shampoo - it is a little more expensive but since it takes such a small amount it is affordable.

I have only ever used it on rescue dog's that had bad skin or coat problems. I have never used it on baby or sasha I did use it on my friends dog teddy after he got over the mange to bring his coat back to life and get rid of some of the flacking. This is the frist time I have heard that baby shampoo has novacain in it I guess I should look that up. I also have never had a dog to dry out from use but have had baby shampoo do wonders for dogs skin and coats.

BUT to each his own I always say....

I can't remembr the exact word they put on the label, OI will have to look at the label the next time I go to a store... any way that word is the same thing as novacaine<SP>


I learned that when I went to beauty school. We had to do research on all the shampoos out on the market at that time... I used to have the list.. Might have it still in a box in storrage.. hehehe I keep everything...

I still have most of the bottle I bought for Lily nearly 3 years ago so the cost is minimal. I don't recall the brand but it is made specifically for dogs, got it at Petco or Petsmart. Makes her smell all nice and fresh too. :)

My vet said never ever use human shampoo - except for baby shampoo.
I used it for my last dogs. So, that makes a total of 16 years.

Chimom - I made an earlier post about a puppy that was poisoned from human shampoo so maybe that is what you read.

Currently, I'm trying the sample dog shampoos in the Hartz makeover kit. The smell is great, but it only last a day. My off-brand less than a $1 a bottle baby shampoo smells great for a week. And, of course I don't want it in Frasier's eyes, but if he wiggles like a wild thing and it gets there - no burning. :)
