So, the first things to say about this is that it works. Really well. My cat gets itchy patches just in front of his ears and tends to scratch them raw. After only a few days of using this, his skin was much better and has continued to heal well. I will absolutely continue to use this when necessary. However: I was expecting a product that would be absorbed by his skin, and this does not work that way. It is extremely waxy and sticky, and I had to warm it up with my hands to get it to spread at all. Then it just stays there, being sticky, until someone grooms it off. It also has a very strong odor. Its clearly not the added fragrance, but the natural smell of (presumably) the shea butter. I don't like the smell, and the cat REALLY doesn't like it. He runs off as soon as I open the tin, though he doesn't seem to mind it actually being put on.
I liked this salve because it really sticks on the skin. I needed to put a diaper on right after I applied so my lab didn't' try to lick it off but after a bit I could remove it. The slave also stayed put throughout our walk even when we encountered wet grass and snow. It seemed to provide relief from the itching immediately and throughout the day. I interchanged it along with Natures Aid soothing gel depending on the days activities.
Immediate relief for my fur baby! Nothing else stopped her relentless itching. I rubbed it in a few spots and voila instant relief. She sighed and went to sleep.
My hairless cat gets very dry paws so I rub this on his feet everyday. Now they’re nice and hydrated, and soft. Scent is nice too. He’s yet to try and lick it off.
