    I like this answer plus adding oatmeal shampoo for when you need to bathe your dog. Don't bathe your dog more than once every two weeks, and preferably only once a month or less. Natural oils are important. And, yes, see your vet first.

    hehe... In fact... MOST of them are the same as for humans... even same dose ratios.

    When filling prescriptions, we often tell people not to buy from our pharmacy, but to go to Walmart because it's cheaper and it's exactly the same thing.

    There are a few reasons this is a VERY bad idea. Not the least of which is the fact that the dog will want to lick it off and ultimately end up with a hotspot. Then you have a new problem on your hands.

    Also, it's bad for their coat.
