    Default what's your best advice on shampoo brand and kind?

    We are getting our first english bulldog very soon, and I'm trying to have some things ready for the puppy before it comes. My question is what's the best brand and kind of shampoo for An english bulldog? I know they can have skin issues, so I thought maybe get a best of the best and use it and maybe then they won't have so many skin issues. What do all you think? I know there are oatmeal kinds and hypoallergenic to name a few what kinds and brand work best?

    On young pups I just use baby shampoo, once they are older and more prone to skin issues I use pharmaseb, it's expensive but its anti bacterial and anti fungal.

    Welcome! I'm a three week EB parent. From what I've read Oatmeal isn't a good choice as Oatmeal is a carb (sugar) which feeds yeast, to which English Bulldogs are prone. Lisa, thanks for the Pharmaseb rec. I bought a tea tree oil shampoo and it's done okay. My girl did have a yeast ear infection and hives in reaction to an antibiotic. Good for you that you are reading up on Bulldogs.

    Before using pharmaseb I used a tea tree oil one, it did okay but did not really prefer the smell too much.

    I always use this shampoo by Tomlyn it comes in strawberry and vanilla ... after shampooing I give a nice conditioning rinse by Kelco called Ultra Silk

    I have used an oatmeal based shampoo as well. I used Tgel a couple of times on the suggestion of the breeder to help with environmental allergies affecting the skin but it didn't seem to be that effective so I quit using it

    We use the Puppy Tearless Oatmeal and Chamomile brand from Petsmart, and it leaves them smelling like baby powder, and theirvfurvis soft, plus it doesn't bother their eyes. We also use apple cider vinegar mixed with warm water to rinse them after shampoo, leave it on for a few minutes then rinse it off, it is really good for their coat, leaves them soft, and helps to get rid of the excess soap residue, plus I find that it keeps them smelling nice longer in between their baths. We bathe our dogs every 2 weeks.
