    Some of my fluffy girls are in serious need of a bath. Their extra fluffy backsides seem to be collecting a little poo, and it looks awful. I was thinking about giving them a bath next week if the weathers nice. Normally I use baby shampoo when treating them to a spa day, but I don't have any. I do have some flea and tick shampoo for my dog though. Could I use this on them? I would rather use what I already have at home then have to go out and buy something........

    I'd just use a few drops of dishwashing liquid.

    Flea shampoos pretty much just drown the fleas anyway, and have very little residual effect
