I don't bathe my dog all that much because hes a jack russel, hes small, and every time he goes outside, he voids the point of a bath, because I sware in 5 minutes he will absorb a month of dirt from outside lol

BUT I will bathe him now and then, despite the fact he seems to prefer to be fithly so he can pretend hes a hunter =P what should I use?

my skin is absurdly sensitive, I imagine to the gluten in thing's perhaps something else, but for now, what is a good gluten-free shampoo to wash my dear ole dog with?

Sometimes I just use plain water on my dear old dog. If I use something I purchased, I make sure I wash my hands well immediately after the bath. If you have a Cracker Barrel near you, they sell Kirk's Coconut Soap for a reasonable price. You can soak a bar of Kirk's in a gallon of water for a week or so, add oil, and make your own dog bath soap that lasts for quite awhile. (And the soaked diluted Kirks is a great pesticide for aphids if you garden. :D

We use the same thing we use on ourselves. :D Any decent, inexpensive shampoo will do. I will say, though: don't wash your dog in the winter at all, and only wash him a few times in the summer. Washing dogs too often is very bad for their skin and coat.

I'm going to disagree with this. Most human shampoos are too harsh for a dog's skin. You might get away with baby shampoo.

I agree with the other part, though. Far too many dog owners wash their dogs unnecessarily resulting in dry skin problems.

Pet foods and supplies are my business--we own a pet specialty retail store.

Depends on the breed. My toy poodle gets baths weekly with baby shampoo. It does well.

I can't tell you the last time I bathed my dog. I usually just use baby wash. However dear 'ol dog loves to play with the hose. Now that is warm he is having a field day and getting wet.

Simple Baby Wash can do your doggy good. Most vets will recommend it above any commercial "dog shampoo," as the ingredients in conventional animal shampoos can do more harm than good, especially if your pet is sensitive to chemicals. It's gentle on the eyes and skin, and of course, gluten free for both you and your poochie! Best of all, your puppy will smell great...until, of course, he decides to next roll around in the backyard.G

Good luck!

Add me to the list who uses baby shampoo or baby wash. I prefer baby wash because it makes her smell so good. :wub:

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
