Can you put hand cream on dry skin dog?

I would recommend a mild moisturizer that is fragrance free,

preferably one intended for sensitive skin. If your dog's skin is

dry and sensitive, fragrances in creams or lotions could further

irritate his skin.

One of my rat terriers gets dry, itchy skin regularly in the

winter. I've had luck with Bag Balm for him. It's a product

originally intended to help moisturize cow udders and is sold in

most pharmacies.

If the dry skin persists, your vet can prescribe shampoos or

lotions that are medicated to help, also.
