Dogs have to be bathed if you don’t want your home to stink, but that doesn’t mean you’re always ready to give your pooch a bath. If you’re in a pinch, can you use human shampoo instead of dog shampoo?

You can technically use your shampoo to bathe your dog, but it’s not a very good idea. The ingredients in human shampoo are different than the ingredients in dog shampoo. The ingredients in human shampoo can really dry out your dog’s skin. With drier skin, your dog will get itchy, and his coat will create more smelly oil to compensate for the oil that was stripped away.

It’s much better to take a quick trip to the pet store to pick up a bottle of dog shampoo. For more tips on keeping your dog clean, click here, or speak with your vet Flushing, MI.
