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.
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.
My mini aussie Ringo has had skin issues his whole life. He has allergies and very very sensitive skin. He gets hot spots easily and has dry/flakey skin. Since my vet recommended this shampoo we have had no issues. He does need to be bathed in it about 1x per week and sometimes when his fur is shorter I can get away with longer. But that's mostly because he spends a lot of time outside and gets dirty quickly. You will not regret this purchase!
Vet Recommended Shampoo
on Jun 3, 2019
I just recently purchased this shampoo for my dog who has a skin condition from seasonal allergies. I found this product at Chewy.com to be the least expensive. The product is great and works to alleviate the red inflammation around his paws and stomach. I also purchased the spray for between bathing. Chewy's website couldn't be easier to navigate, and I would strongly recommend this product for dogs with a skin condition.
Works for Us

My dog has pimple-like bumps on different areas throughout this body due to long-term Prednisone use. I've given him 4 baths so far and many are drying up. I'm sure this would be even more effective if I was able to let him sit for 5-10 minutes with the Shampoo (per the directions) on but he hates baths so much.
Senior Sweetheart coat looks fab

Our Labrador Senior Sweetheart Drake had a dry flaky skin condition and our vet recommended this shampoo. We followed the instructions and his coat has never looked better. The dry and flaky skin is gone and his coat looks great.

Our puppy has been itching like crazy and he has been misdiagnosed by most vets! Fortunately, we found a vet who is also a microbiologist who recommended a bath routine with the Douxo shampoo and a diluted apple cider vinegar rinse every 3 days. She also said to leave the shampoo on for 20 minutes. She said this shampoo is great for bacteria and yeast overgrowth. It has helped so much with our pup! She also explained white dogs have severe skin issues due to their lack of immunity.
Dog has Skin Issues
on May 5, 2019
This product was recommended by a vet for me to use on my dog that has been experiencing skin issues for years now. It is the first shampoo that has actually given him some relief. It is important to use it about every three days and leave it on for at least 10 min when bathing, this instruction came from my vet. It has made a huge difference. My dog suffers from bacterial infection and too many antibiotics and cortisone shots has destroyed his immune system. This product has helped him and worth a try.

My dog has some skin troubles so I’ve been pretty careful about what I use on him. A friend recommended this — she has a pup with skin issues too. It doesn’t smell and leaves him very shiny. He’s definitely less flaky looking
Great product, quick shipping

We use this shampoo for our dog who has extremely dry and flaky skin. This is the only shampoo we've found that doesn't result in tons of dandruff. Competitive pricing and quick shipping.

After two baths my Mini Schnauzer's skin condition was almost totally cleared up. This shampoo smells good, foams up nicely, and rinses off easily. Very, very, highly recommended.
