I am sure that most dog owners feel proud to hear from people that their dog has a brilliant and smooth coat. The shiny and attractive hair not only tells a lot about a dog's health, but it also reveals the quality of the shampoo you use for its bathing. That's why I want to help you on how to choose the best shampoo for French bulldogs.
Can I use human shampoo on a dog?
There is a common misconception that you can use human shampoo for bathing a dog. Since dogs have different pH from people (up to 7,5), using human shampoos can only cause them to experience skin issues in the future. Flaky, dry, and itchy skin may be only some of the problems. Of course, it doesn't mean that a human shampoo will cause issues if you used it a couple of times. Long term usage can cause skin damage over time because our shampoos are too acidic. They can break down the dogs' skin mantle and can put them on a higher risk to develop bacterial infections.
What can I use in place of shampoo for French bulldogs?

Besides using a French bulldog foam, you can also try using the Frenchie World Bath Salt. It doesn't stitch the eyes, so your batpig will feel more comfortable to enjoy showers. The Bath Salt presents an excellent replacement for a French bulldog shampoo. It is available in 4 fragrances and is enriched with oils.
