Rated 5 out of 5 by MargaretTN So far so good.
My rescue dog, I think he's german shepard/malamute, or husky mix, has always been itchy (He is 7 this month, I've had him 4 years). Seems in the past years his allergies/itching became very noticeable. He wears t-shirts now because he scratched himself raw in armpits and chest. The vet said he had allergies, told me to give him allergy pills daily. On a whim of reading reviews all over the internet, and my dog being lethargic daily and still itchy, I decided to go grain free. He has been doing well with the food switch, but recently I had to go to an emergency vet for a totally unrelated issue, but while there I told her about the change in food, but his skin still has "Crusty" spots. She said it was staph from him scratching, gave me a bunch of antibiotics and another pill, told me he would need to be on it a few weeks. He probably has one week of antibiotics left. I bathed him again yesterday (as she said he would need to be bathed in antibacterial shampoo weekly for a while.) The smell of this stuff isn't phenomenal, but as I lathered it up, I could see some of the crusty skin coming off. I left it on ten minutes, as directed, then thoroughly rinsed the shampoo off. I didn't see him scratch at all yesterday, slept through the night, and where the skin looked scaly and crusty (because some places were/are bald), it now looks like it's getting healthy. I'm pleased. If anyone reading this has a dog that seems to have skin issues never ending, this is the first time I've felt like I may have it all under control. Obviously it could be a combination of grain free food/treats, antibiotics for the staph, antibacterial shampoo, t-shirts, short hair (all the bald spots, I had him basically shaved down), and added oil to food for his dry skin, et cetera. Anyone that has a dog with these problems knows that when something seems to be working, it is a huge relief!

Rated 4 out of 5 by suzb This product works great!
My 11 year old border collie mix has severe dermatitis either due to age of allergies. I wanted a coal tar shampoo but could not find any at the various pet stores. I purchased many different shampoos that were supposed to help combat the problem but none of them worked. I then found the Chewy.com website and was happy to see that Veterinary Formula Clinical Care Antiparasitic & Antiseborrheic Shampoo was available. I received the product only a few days after placing the order. I was very happy with the shampoo as it lathered up nicely and did not have that medicated smell. It's only been a few days since I gave my dog Mac his bath with this product but I can already tell that it is beginning to work as he is not constantly itching and chewing and scratching himself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DDinNY Great for allergies & smell!
I have purchased shampoos from the vet for my Yorkie that has allergies and gets very smelly and was surprised how good this shampoo is working for her at last something that is helping her scratch less and has helped with the bad yeasty smell. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by penelope2 working great, may need another bottle
My lab had greasy, flaky, yellow patches causing her hair to fall out, and red bumps on her belly. Vet attributes it to allergys. Prednisone knocked out the red bumps but not the greasy flaky stuff. Her hair is now coming back in; i no longer own a hairless lab.

by katy1220 A product that really works
I have a female GSD and she's black and tan. She would have a oilly look to her fur, and had dandruff. The previous shampoo i was using did barely ok. After a couple days, the oilly look would come back. So i did some searching and came across this product. i have only used it twice. And what a difference. Her fur shines like a new penny and stays shinny, plus her dandruff is gone. Great product and i will be buying it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyDogDad This stuff works!
We had been using a prescription antiseborrheic shampoo that we got from the vet for 4 times the price. This product works just as well, if not better. The vet's product said to keep the shampoo lathered up on the dog for 5-10 minutes. This product says 10-15 minutes, which is a long time to keep a dog relaxed while getting a shampoo, but I turn it into a massage for my dog.

My Bully Breed dog suffers from seborrhea from allergies. This shampoo degreases well without over drying, helps reduce breakouts and keeps skin from getting infected. I use it once a week to keep her skin in check.
