why is dog shampoo eight dollars?

ok I admit it, my dogs need a bath really bad. I mean paige is stinky. so I go to buy shampoo and there is no dog shampoo under 8 bucks at pet supplies? what is up with that? the lady next to me says she just uses her own shampoo which is what I am going to do cuz that seem s ridiculous for shampoo. what is up with that? the dilemma is that I have to make a big game out of it to shampoo paige so it turns into a big ordeal cuz she is a nut job but she is stinking up my bed, lol.

Re: why is dog shampoo eight dollars?

Sssshh--pipe down! Do you want The Paige to HEAR you?? You're talkin' 'bout a dog with major 'TUDE here!! Seriously, I found shampoo for $5 on Drsfostersmith.com but there'd be shipping. I dunno if people shampoo has the appropriate pH for dogs? Maybe it doesn't matter? Anyway, yep, you're right it sure isn't cheap!

Where in Michigan are you at? There are some places you can get it for less then $8 but I have no clue how far you are away from them.

The cheap HUMAN shampoo is cheap because it uses HARSH chemicals that really shouldn't be there. A GIANT bottle of Mane and Tail shampoo at Feed and Seed stores is the most inexpensive way to go. I used to use the Dog Oatmeal shampoo on my hair and beard because it smells like Cherry Almond and has no harsh chemicals in it. It makes me really hungry after I use it.....

phazewolf, do you ever shop at K9 Specialties? it is on 14/mound. You can save a lot of money by shopping there, people come from canada to shop there!!! It's not close to me so I only go once a month or so but I highly recommend it.

Yes I do which is why I was asking where you were located at. I drive out to Howell to see one of my friends all the time on weekends and I could pick stuff up for you if you like if you are on the way or near by.

Re: why is dog shampoo eight dollars?

I think my dog shampoo is about $11, but I'm picky about smells (don't want a working German Shepherd smelling like a flower) and I get one that is medicated b/c my mutt gets hot spots. But I so rarely bathe my dogs, it lasts probably 6 months even with three dogs. Sometimes my dogs roll in crap of some sort but I just rinse with the hose whatever part is dirty. They never really smell bad, I only bathe them for shows or if we are staying at someone's house, just so I can say I did so they seem more clean.

Re: why is dog shampoo eight dollars?

Just a quick tip - if you can't get dog shampoo, you can always use Dawn Dishsoap. Not human shampoo, though.
