  • Solved my Angus' skin issues completely!

    My Angus (pitbull mix) was plagued with skin issues that suddenly appeared at age 4. Raw red skin and sometimes lesions on his neck and chest, and he would constantly chew at his paws and tail. I switched him from Earthborn Holistic Great Plains feast (a terrific food, and all my other pups LOVE it and do well on it) to Instinct Rabbit and within a week and a half his skin was looking incredible and no more chewing on his paws and tail. The other thing I did was switch him to Douxo shampoo at the recommendation of the dermatology department at Tufts Veterinary Hospital, a chlorhexidine based shampoo that is a miracle worker for dogs with skin issues.

Chewy sells it, and I highly recommend it! Initially I shampooed him a few times a week, then 2x a week, and now down to 1x every couple weeks, letting this product stay on his skin for 3 - 5 minutes before rinsing. Amazing. Between the rabbit food and the shampoos, my boy is beautifully white, no patchy skin, and back to his old self. … more

  • Very Unhappy

    By on

    I cannot speak about the quality of this product since I never gave it to my dog. When I received the bag, it has been torn open - the food was exposed and someone had used a piece of red tape to try to seal it! Why not just toss it instead of sending it to a customer?? Will never buy dry dog food from Chewy again.
