We starting using these as a wee little pup. And I continued to buy a few more boxes during his first couple months with me. They worked well and his poodle skin and hair didn’t have any sort of ill reactions to the pet wet wipes. The only downside to these are the cost at certain stores like Petsmart and Pet Supermarket. In those type stores the price would be as high as $12.99, averaging around $9.99. I always found the best deal on these in discount stores like TJ Maxx they’d be a dollar or more cheaper, more in the $4.99 – $6.99 range.
Natural Care Wipes– After awhile I decided I didn’t want to fish out 10 bucks for special dog wipes, or even $5 for a single box. Huxtable goes nearly everywhere with me–friends and family homes, stores, etc. He sleeps with me when I’m on the couch and sometimes when I’m in the bed (above the covers). And because of these things Huxtable is kept very clean, which includes being wiped every time after using the bathroom (unless he goes and uses it himself in the middle of the night), and when coming from outside. Therefore, I use more pet wet wipes than the average pet owner, and after some research I decided to purchase baby wipes for my little dog. After some testing of different types I settled on Huggies Natural Care. They are my favorite wipes and luckily I can buy them in bulk (600+ wipes) from Amazon or Sam’s Club (which is like Costco depending on where you live) for only $20.
So in comparison, you can pay $10 for $100 wipes or $20 for 600 wipes. There’s really no competition. I looked at the ingredients in both products and didn’t find much difference except for there seemed to be less added chemicals in the baby wipes. I figure if an item is safe to use on a newborn human, from their private areas to the hair on their head, it has to be okay to use on a dog. After months of using baby wipes there has been no bad effects on Huxtable’s coat or skin. If anything because he is kept clean his coat is probably better than the average dog or poodle who isn’t kept as clean, not to mention he probably smells better, lol. Poodle hair in particular thrives when kept clean and free of debris, just like human hair.
Every pet is different. Some animals may have allergies or certain health issues and their skin may not be able to tolerate certain shampoos, foods, pet wet wipes, etc. But if your doggie has no known issues and you already use pet wet wipes, save yourself a couple of bucks and try using baby pet wet wipes.
