We use baby shampoo or Dove. Boo was fine (and not dried out) by either.

Murphy's oil soap? Liquid hand soap?

i have used baby shampoo in a pinch..i know somone will sound off about this but it's better than water alone..
I would not use dish soap or adult shampoo..
I would think any soap would do the trick.
When I worked for the vet, we bathed dogs in blue dawn dish soap for fleas, I am sure in a pinch it would work. Sorry you have such a mess on your hands.
If it's as bad as that, I'd use whatever shampoo I had.
Put him outside or clean the crate and go to the store?
I would not use antibacterial hand soap on the dog.
Well if it makes you feel any better, I had the same thing happen to me today when I got home from work. Only took an hour to clean however...I guess that's cause mine is still an 18lb puppy lol. Luckily I had some doggy shampoo on hand...but it does suck cleaning the crate outside in 15 degree weather >Originally Posted by toahiaph

Dog skin is neutral in pH (the measure of acid-alkaline balance).
Human skin (including that of babies) is MANY times more acidic.
Anything formulated for comfortable use on human skin will be irritating to dog skin.
Best to keep dog shampoo on hand if you have a dog.
Human baby shampoo is not a good substitute for dogs.
