Default human lotion okay for dogs?

hey guys,

well 2 weeks ago my dog had major fleas to the point where sections of his hair fell off from over scratching/biteing. we gave him a deep cleaning bath with a strong anti flea shampoo. We started to put the anti flea powder on him now just incase there are some fleas that come back (my mother loves her stray cats, 4 of them! lol)

now my pup keeps scratching at the area where the hair fell off at, i looked closely and didn't see any redness/bites or anything unusual only that its dry.

so can i put human lotion on there for now to relieve his dryness?

Short answer ; No

Dogs have sensitive skin.
I would highly recommend talking to a vet before putting anything on their skin. They may tell you to use a very specific human lotion, but wil more likely get you something meant for dogs.

(Although I think most vets are scam artists, they will at least be able to tell you what to look for, or what to avoid)

You can try using Selsun Blue shampoo to help with the dryness. There is also a balm that you can apply to the area that will keep the skin from being dry. Its in a green tin can, they use it on horses for that same reason.

Just buy your dog some BAG BALM that's the name any vet or farm store will have it. It's made to put on the cows teats and any other farm of animal. Also works good on hands . That will cost about $10 bucks and is good for anything with skin. It has been around for about a 100 yrs and you know why it works lol. I say the heck with 100 dollar vet calls for little things like this. Hope this helps .

Try and get your dog, Comfortis. It's a once a month tablet to prevent fleas among other parasites. Definatly better than the messy power... If your dog is still scratching even without the presence of fleas, it may be allergic to some outside source.

Petco sells a squeeze tube lotion called Tender Paw. It works on dryness in the pads as well as elbows & any other part you need to put it on. Not expensive & basically just a bunch of different vitamins/minerals.

This stuff is amazing & I have even seen this stuff used for diaper rash on babies, & dry chapped hands so you know the stuff is safe for pets.

You put the balm on? Who told you to put the balm on? I didn't tell you to put the balm on. Why'd you put the balm on? You haven't even been to see the doctor. If you're gonna put a balm on, let a doctor put a balm on.

Our dogs have skin problems off and on...it sucks but get one of those soft cones. Keeps them from licking/biting the affected area for a few days to give it a chance to heal.

It rubs the lotion on the skin or else it gets the hose again.

My dog I swear is amphibian. She spends most of her summer swimming so her hair losses alot of its natural oil and her skin gets really dry. The vet has us giving her fish oil which totally helps. But I would talk to a vet not a bunch of opinions.

I have an english bulldog.. talk about allergies dry skin etc...

1/2 a benadryl, and VITAMIN E oil. Her poor nose gets SUPER dry. Vitamin E oil moisturizes WAY WAY better then lotion.

Use Frontline pills for fleas, a bit expensive, but it works perfectly.
I live in the country, my dogs are always running about, but never seen a flea on them. Wasn't the case before I started giving them Frontline.

what he said x 2 ---- vet will better tell you what to look for. Not all dogs are the same and they all react to mediciation differently. Good luck on this sir.
