I think for one time, human shampoo would be ok, but its not something you want to use regularly because dogs have different skin PH then people, which will dry out their coats. I used to bathe my guinea pig with baby shampoo with no issues.

I disagree with the others, if you choose and mild, human, shampoo and don't wash his face he should be fine. I use human shampoo on my dog all the time and she's fine. Infact one of the salons we took her to used human shampoo for all of her customers.

i don't want to answer incorrectly -- why is this an emergency? Go to pet shop and see what they have for your particular pet -- also, check the ingredients -- they may be the same ingredients found in baby shampoo -- until you know for sure what is safe, hold off on giving Brady a bath.
