Default homemade for sensitive skin

I've been using the recipe on this site Homemade dog shampoo ever since my yorkshire terrier started getting eczema. In the last 3months his skin has started clearing up. I think some of the products out there are a little harsh, so I'm sticking with natural products from now on.

I heard somewhere that some dogs compulsively bite themselves even though there's no reason, have you considered this too?

I second the person who suggested Johnson and Johnson. It's gentle, doesn't strip the oils out of the coat, doesn't sting if they get some in their eyes, is cheap and smells nice. What more can you ask?

Thanks Baxter'smybaby. You're the Best.

An oatmeal shampoo will probably be best for your long as it is a DOG shampoo. Human shampoo, even baby can be gentle enough for a human who is pH balanced at a
5, but a dog needs a pH balance of 7. Time and time again I have had dogs come to me where the owners say that they have very sensitive skin, when I start to ask questions to determine the best type of shampoo to use on the dog I find that the owners have been using their own shampoo. The other possibility, and this is a major possibility, is that the shampoo wasn't entirely rinsed off. Left over residue can cause itching. I recommend that when you think the soap is rinsed off, rinse for 5 more minutes.

There are a lot of reasons for your puppy's itchy situation.

It could be because of any of the ff:

For dogs with dry itchy skin, hots spots, I use the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Cleanser, Mud Masque and Mud Treatment from HAMPI Natural Pet Spa Natural Dog Shampoos | Natural Dog Conditioners | Dog Spa Products | Green Pet Products | Pet Grooming Products & Professional dog grooming supplies

However, sometimes the itching can be a result of a food allergy, or some other type of allegy.
