Homemade oatmeal dog shampoo! LOVE it! I doubled it and added a tablespoon of melted coconut oil, and drops of essential oils of peppermint and grapefruit and a little vitamin E oil. Also your better off using hot water to dissolve the baking soda better.
If your dog spends his days scratching at itchy skin and keeps you up at night with persistent licking and chewing, he needs to see a veterinarian. However, a homemade oatmeal bath can help give your dog temporary relief from dry skin, allergic reactions and hot spots.
