What kind of Shampoo do you use on a dog?

I want to know what type of shampoo and conditioner to use on my dog. He gets hot spots so he has kind of sensitive skin. I have never used dog shampoo and was wondering if it is worth the price? Also what human shampoo/ conditioner would work good without irritating his skin?

I use Pete Rickard's Cedar Shampoo for my dog; it works really well. If your dog has sensitive skin, I would check with your vet first.

I always used puppy shampoo on my dogs. It's very mild, doesn't burn their eyes or ears and is gentle on the skin.

Human shampoos will make his skin worse. Get dog shampoo and get one for sensitive skin. Normally I would suggest an oatmeal shampoo, however if your dog id on a grain free diet you should stay away from grains in the shampoo as well. If the hot spots are bad got to your vet and get a medicated shampoo. Also don't shampoo in too hot of water because that will aggravate his skin.

Thank you very much very helpful! The hot spots aren't even there anymore he used to get them a lot but he hasn't gotten them for about a year or two. Although they sometimes reappear after a bath. Why are the oats bad only if he eats foods containing oats?

Some dogs have grain allergies, or intolerances, and sometimes people don't understand that an allergy is an allergy no matter how it comes in contact with the body, whether it is consumed or applied.
