Okay guys I have a quick question for the experts. So I gave Chapo his first bath yesterday with a "hartz" brand shampoo hypoalergenic with no soaps or detergents, with oatmeal. To make a long story short, I made extra sure he was completly dry, brushed his coat to get rid of the excess hair, but OMG he woke up with a Hotspot grrrrrr. Which shampoos would you guys recommend, brands please so I can lookup online, as I have a limited market here in mexico.

Thanks everybody!

This is a homemade recipe

This is a homemade recipe that I found Online. It works nicely.I couldn't find liquid castile soap,-so I grated a bar instead ( then melted & cooled it).

2 cups water
2 teaspoons liquid castile soap
2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
Up to 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin or vegetable oil

Combine the above ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake to blend. Generously wet the pet's coat and pour a small amount onto the coat and lather. Work the shampoo into the skin and coat. Rinse thoroughly and dry.


Thanks Cynderella

Thanks for the advice, first hotspot kinda freaked me out, so im going to have to try the recipe I appreciate it.

Your welcome :)

I live in a remote community(3 hours to the nearest vet). So I do a lot of researching information on google & bulldog world.My bulldog Brit had seasonal flank alopecia this spring. I thought a homemade shampoo would be better for her skin.

I hope it helps
