People Shampoo

I use Pantene Pro V on my dogs.... it's human shampoo loaded with conditioners and smells great. I have heard that you are not supposed to use human shampoo on dogs because of the Ph factor yet I've never had a problem. What's the story on using people shampoo on dogs.

Human shampoo is too drying for use on a dog. Use only shampoo formulated for dogs. Many human shampoos also contain chemicals that are very irritating to a dog's skin. Many dogs break out in rashes, itching, or dandruff if human shampoo is used on them. It should only be used in an emergency.
