Is it safe to rub baby oil on dogs suffering from dry skin

Customer Question

She is a min-pin with very dry skin. She is about 11 years old.

Baby oil is okay but it isn't quite the pH that is needed for her skin. I would try to use vitamin E oil for her skin and also pick up some fish oil capsules at your local pet store to give to her daily.
