    No sure it's working

    By on

    Have used this spray several times on my dog's back end to stop the licking action. There isn't any evidence from the spraying and my dogs actions to suggest that is brings the relief I wan't for her. she continues to lick.

    Fabulous generic

    By on

    When my vet was out of the spray I normally use on my dogs raw spots (he’s an obsessive licker), I was in a quandary wondering how to avoid infections. Found this great product that contains the same ingredients at a substantially lower price. It appears to soothe and heal the spots without any initial burning sensation. Glad to have found this product.

    Works perfectly!

    By on

    I have a Scottie who has been plagued by itchy skin for almost a year. A few times the flair up resulted in red bumps he would chew and irritate. The vet put him on antibiotics. TWO ROUNDS of different antibiotics later, I'm still giving him Benedryl for relief. My sister sent some Gentamicin, about half a spray bottle. We sprayed and rubbed it in. Three days later, I was out of the product so I ordered more. His skin is smooth and we have backed off the spraying. So far, it's the best treatment for his skin I've found!

    Finally something that works!

    My Pitbull has had like a contact allergy problem for a few years now. She gets these round lesions that scab over and look so uncomfortable. I knew it was allergies so we tried an allergy pill and that did nothing. This Spring has been especially bad on her with her arm pits filling with sores and her skin was crazy hot, my poor girl. Our vet gave me this spray to try and WOW! within a day there was a big difference and less than a week later after applying the medicine every couple of days, her lesions are completely gone! I would recommend that rather than spraying over a large area, you can conserve the medicine by spraying in one spot and then using your hand to smear it around.

    Simply Remarkable!!

    By on

    What improvement in just 7 Days...in mood, energy and the affected areas, including ear lobes, top of head and 2 paws which had been gnawed on and were extremely sore. This product was used in conjunction w/Apoquel. The Vet had to shave her a lot, and now I can see the hair growing back. She has stopped jumping when I spray her and is at peace! Prescribed by Vet and well worth a try.

    I have used Chewy for a few years on many of our furbabies needs. We started getting our prescriptions recently and are savings have been huge on most products. This spray was 70% lower then either veterinarian we purchased it from over the last year. Thanks for savings us money!

    Really love this product. My dog had a terrible hot spot and it was so red and irritated. After only 1 treatment, it looked better. 3 days later and he’s feeling great.

    My yorkie has a skin irritation that causes him discomfort. This product calms his skin and allows him to not scratch so much. Great product.

    Great product.

    Something close to this worked very well to prevent an old dog from licking and irritating a skin lesion.
