A gentle dog formulated shampoo, without additional fragrances. I'd suggest checking out Organic Oscar.

If the dog has issues with grain or you have the dog on a grain-free diet, then you don't want to use an oatmeal-based shampoo. There are homemade and natural shampoos, as well as medicated ones like by Virbac and other companies. Another alternative, shockingly, is to use Murphy's oil soap. Yes, the wood floor cleaning stuff. It was recommended by my holistic vet and my groomer also uses it.

If your dog has allergies, any shampoo with limited ingredients that also has oatmeal or chamomile will suffice. Many brands have a formula specifically for sensitive skin, so be sure to read the label carefully. Another option is to use a puppy shampoo, for these formulas are often more gentle than adult dog shampoos. If your dog has severe allergies, a veterinarian can prescribe you a medicated canine shampoo. However, it is not advisable to purchase a medicated shampoo without a veterinarian's opinion and you often cannot do so without a medical script.
