allergies. Your dogs might do perfectly fine with it..I bet most vets think like we do..if it's safe for babies, well then it's fine for dogs. After all..most vets recommend crappy dog food too! Just go with what works for you and your critters. I am positive there are plenty of baby shampoos that are chemical free and organic...that's what I would look for..not the baby part..just want to help..not complicate your lives!!
