Love this shampoo

My cat has severe allergies, and this immediately helped calm down her skin reaction to the allergies. While it says to use it much more often than I do, it helps every time I bathe her.

Review of chlorhexidine PS shampoo

This shampoo works very well where my dogs have licked and scratched making the area(s) raw and oozie. It is not uncomfortable for them to be washed with it and it helps the areas heal faster.

Seems to work and does not smell bad

I have a Minpin with pretty bad skin allergies and needs to be on Cytopoint or Apoquel most of the year. Our vet recommended this shampoo so we gave it a try. It's a bit of a pain to keep it on as long as you need to, but all of the allergy shampoos are like that. This one does not smell bad like some of the other brands do and it did seem to keep is itching down. I haven't used it as often as it recommends because it is such a hassel to bathe him that often, but when I do use it, it definitely seems to help.

The best shampoo EVER!

My pitbull has really bad allergies. I've tried other medicated shampoos, both over the counter and prescription, but this is hands-down the best! It's magical. From the first wash her coat feels and looks much better, she's not itchy or red, and I can tell she feels so much better too! I'd recommend this for any pupper with skin issues. You won't regret it. Getting it from Chewy is just a great bonus!

Sadie's Horrible allergy

My sweet Sadie has been fighting an allergy for several years now and it isn't getting better. She scratches constantly and pulls her hair out because it itches so much. She takes Apoquel, Benedryl and shots for the itch and gets 2 baths a day with this Douxo shampoo. It seems to be a losing battle but we try to do everything thinkable for her comfort. I have tried many dog foods as well.

Super Shampoo

Our veterinarian daughter recommended the Douxo Shampoo, the Douxo S3 mousse to us, along with the Douxo Calm Serum, to aid our golden retrievers during allergy season. We have seen a marked improvement this year of them chewing at their feet. We’ve also use Douxo Chlorhexidine spray and pads. Exceptionally happy with all the Douxo products.

Works for bacterial infection with bumps.

Actually cured a dog of those red skin bumps with this and Simplicef. Had to wash the dog every three days, then every week then every two weeks but it stopped the problem. Make sure you wash it all off and leave it on five minutes. Count to 1000 five times.
