Douxo Chlorhexidine PS is an antiseptic lathering solution with special moisturizing ingredients, including chlorhexidine, climbazole and phytosphingosine for the management of superficial and severe skin conditions.
Chlorhexidine and climbazole helps control bacteria and fungi populations.
Lipacid helps restore the skin barrier by moisturizing and leaving a lipo-protidic file deposited on the skin. This also helps regulate associated seborrhea and inflammation.
Phytosphingosine – salicyloyl is a modified pro-ceramide which possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-seborrheic properties, helping eliminate pruritus and itching.
Deposits long-lasting film resists rinsing and protect from irritations and loss of moisture.
Treating itchy skin is very important as it can affect your pet's quality of life. Prolonged itching can lead to injury, infection or even scarring, so it's best to treat appropriately.
HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND ANIMALS: Do not swallow. Avoid contact with the eyes. If undue skin irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and contact a veterinarian. Keep out of reach of children. To facilitate the use of the product, bottles can be stored upside down.
If your furry friend is using a topical flea and tick treatment, please remember to follow the bathing instructions on the flea and tick packaging. Each treatment works differently and may require different wait times before water exposure.
External use only. Wet the animal with warm water and apply DOUXO Calm Shampoo extensively on the fur to create a rich lather. Massage the shampoo into the wet hair coat, lather freely. Allow to remain on the hair coat for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with clean water. Repeat if needed. The veterinarian’s recommendations should be observed.
It is generally recommended to shampoo 2 to 3 times weekly, for 1 to 2 weeks. Then, for eective control of the condition, can be used in shift with DOUXO Chlorhexidine Micro-emulsion Spray and/or Douxo Chlorhexidine +Climbazole Mousse.
I am really pleased with this shampoo. For $30, I was hoping it would rinse and dry the dog itself but eh, I’m still rather pleased. I even have my groomer use it when I take him in for his appointment. My vet recommended this Douxo line of products due to my dog’s reoccurring skin allergies. He gets scabby skin in the fall/winter that itches intensely. Nothing cleared it up for my dog until this was used. This is an every year occurrence that requires bathing at least once weekly for about three or four months to clear up. We’ve tested and have yet to find the cause so we decided to treat the symptoms topically. The shampoo is thick and has a nice fruity fresh scent.
Love this shampoo

My dog has tons of allergies. We can't figure out what he's allergic to. I've tried all kinds of products to help him. This is the ONLY shampoo that doesn't irritate his skin. Even the shampoo recommended and purchased at the vets irritated his skin. This shampoo helps. It truly does. I was so grateful to find this.
Great shampoo for itchy skin
on Apr 3, 2021
My little fur baby was extremely itchy and had lots of small skin pustules from scratching so hard. I read the reviews of this shampoo on Chewy and decided to give it a try. It worked wonders! And my vet also recommends this shampoo for skin allergies. It does not smell medicated. You do need to leave it on for about 10 minutes and let it work into the skin but my fur baby loves to be massaged. It cleared his skin itchiness in just a few days!
So happy this helped

This shampoo was recommended by a friend who had similar issues with her pup loosing hair with some sort of infection, even our vet didn't diagnose. I have used it 3 times so far and it's already helping. This arrived the very next day after we ordered, super fast! Thank you!
Yeasty Boys Approved
on Feb 27, 2021
We have three dogs with skin problems, but the two boys get persistent yeast infections during the summer due to environmental allergies. This shampoo has been amazing and was highly recommended by our vet.
It leaves their coats soft, shiny , and smelling great all while taking care of their pesky yeast problems. I have also used it on our girl when she had a minor staph infection...this shampoo took care of it after two treatments!
The lather is incredibly rich and a little bit goes a long way, so it’s worth the bigger price tag. We’ve tried less expensive varieties of chlorhexidine shampoo but always come back to Duoxo.
No more dog smell
on Apr 12, 2021
I thought my dog’s smell was here to stay, but this shampoo saved my sanity. My house no longer smells like dog. My dog’s coat is no longer oily by day 7 and I may be able to cut back to a bath once every other week. This stuff is a life saver.
Great Product for Allergies
on Apr 1, 2021
I have been using this product for years as a tool to combat multiple allergies that my dog has. He goes to the groomer once a month - I drop off the shampoo with them for their use on him.....great product! I just ordered some for my friend's dog.

I bought this for my dog who had been suffering from crusty lumps all over her body. I went to five different vets, and changed her diet multiple times. No one could figure out how to make the crusty lumps go away. Thankfully, I found this shampoo and it solved the problem!
At first I used it on my dog 3 times a week and would leave it on her for 10 minutes before rinsing. I did this for a couple of weeks and her condition improved significantly! Now I am down to once a month and just leaving it on for 5 minutes and she is crusty lump free. The lumps have not returned since I started using this. If your dog is suffering from something similar I would give this a try. It sadly took me years toI bought this for my dog who had been suffering from crusty lumps all over her body.

Great shampoo for your pets
on Mar 4, 2021
My Alaskan Malamute has a skin condition and his vet recommended this shampoo. We love it. Not only it does the work, it leaves his coat soft and smelling clean. The best thing about this shampoo is that it does not have a strong scent. I wish all shampoo makers would avoid using strong scent in their shampoos. The dogs don't need it and neither are their people.
This Shampoo Reduces My Vet Bills!
on Mar 1, 2021
This shampoo is amazing. My dog suffers from skin infections and this shampoo works better than the Douxo pads and spray. Her skin is noticeably better the next day. The longer you can keep this shampoo on your pet the better. I lather my dog and wrap her in a towel for 15 to 18 minutes and then rinse her well. This shampoo leaves a very pleasant scent as well.
