Hi all, I searched but did not find a whole discussion on this topic.
Today we went to bathe the girls in anticipation of their flea treatment and upcoming visit to the vet, and we discovered that we were out of the oatmeal doggy shampoo.
We live far away from the nearest pet store, so I searched on the internet for homemade recipes. I know enough not to put people shampoo on them because of the ph.
I found a "recipe" that worked pretty well, but I wonder if others on the site have their own concoction that they could share? Or experiences that would lead me to never do this again? Our 'Mione has moderately dry, itchy skin and so I don't want to take a chance with irritating it.
The recipe I used was:
1 cup distilled water
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. pure aloe
1 tsp. organic dish soap.
which had the value of being a recipe with all ingredients present in my house! It was certainly cheaper than the store-bought.
I use my Aveda and that works very well but it doesn't have a bunch of cheap junk in. I always use organic dish soap so I am glad you gave the recipe and maybe add a drop of lavender.
