DIY Oatmeal Pet Shampoo For Dry And Itchy Skin

This homemade oatmeal pet shampoo offers simple and natural ingredients for dry and itchy skin. It's best for dogs but can be used on other furry friends.


  • Airtight mason jar
  • A coffee grinder or food processor


  • 1 cup Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup Baking Soda
  • 1 quart Warm Water


  • Using a coffee grinder or food processor, grind the oatmeal into a fine powder (like flour).
  • Pour the fine oatmeal powder into a bowl and stir in the baking soda.
  • Gradually add warm water until the mixture combines.
  • Store in an airtight mason jar and get your pet ready for bathtime.


To use, wet your pet and lather them up with the oatmeal shampoo. If possible let the shampoo sit for 5 minutes before rinsing off, then towel dry and give your furry friend a snuggle. This shampoo is good for pets with sensitive skin or allergies to prevent itchy and dry skin.
