Baby Wipes vs Dog/Pet Wipes

What do you guys think about using baby wipes on dogs?
I had originally thought that they're not good for them but I heard others saying that they are okay.
So I'm asking, does anyone use baby wipes on their puppies/dogs throughout their life?
Also, they're a lot cheaper than pet wipes out there.

Hmmmm, I never really thought about using wipes- but I have seen them in the stores.

I guess I'd make sure everything is non-toxic. Cats groom themselves, so there would be a problem, but since dogs don't excessively groom maybe it would be OK. I'm not sure, I'm interested to hear what others think.

We keep one of the "natural" brands of baby wipes (like 7th generation) by the back door and use use them to wipe paws or tail feathers or anything else that may be dirty on the way into the house. My youngest pup for a while had a habit of lifting one front foot and peeing on the other so this was the easiest way to clean him off right before bed.

I have a travel pack of pet wipes I keep in the dog training bag.

The pet wipes are a bit larger, but are very similar to the baby wipes (I haven't actually compared ingredients), but the baby wipes we get are fragrance free and the pet wipes smell like baby wipes.

We don't use them as bath replacements or to try and keep a dog smelling fresh, but more for clean up between baths. They work great for muddy paws, or dogs that managed to step in something outside.

I HAVE, for years, on occasion, used them, to wipe out ears, butts.

I use regular baby wipes for feet with no problems.

If there is a major smell issue, I will use anything I find in the car on Brooks before loading him up. Having the smell of dead animals in the car as you drive calls for emergency measures.

I have used baby wipes for years on Daisy, for all kinds of things. I use unscented aloe vera, usually Pampers or Huggies. Personally, I wouldn't be without them ... and I use them for myself too, to remove makeup, a quick freshen up in the morning, and even to wipe down counters sometimes.

Daisy's almost 10 years old, I'm thinking they're safe

I'm thinking of unscented Pampers with Aloe Vera too. I dont think they would be any harm it's just this is what I have heard of and just wanted to make sure. I wouldn't use them as bath alternatives but yea in situations where it's rainy outside and we have to come back in, I would like to have something to clean his wet muddy paws/fur or his bum when it's dirty and it's not time for him to have a bath yet. Pet wipes are bloody expensive whereas normal baby wipes I have at home anyway as I use them for myself.
Pampers

I discovered baby wipes have great value beyond caring for babies ... I honestly don't know how I managed without them for so long, I use them for so many things now. I also use them to wipe Daisy's eyes, I know they don't sting because I use them to clean my own eyes

We have some in the garage for wiping butts. LOL. They work great and are a LOT cheaper than pet wipes.
