Is this made for bacterial infections of the skin? Does it kill bacteria?
Answer by ChewyMay 01, 2019
This shampoo is designed for the management and quick relief of many dermatological conditions. It kills bacteria on site and inhibits further growth.

Can I continue using this shampoo after the dog skin is improves or is it better to use another? If I continue using the same shampoo how many times per week or a month please?
Answer by ChewyAug 29, 2019
This shampoo may be used initially 2 to 3 times a week for 4 weeks, then reduced to once a week, or as directed by your veterinarian.

Does this shampoo smell perfumy? The less scent the better for both mine and my dog's allergies. Thank you.
Answer by ChewyDec 21, 2019
This shampoo is not scent-free. It features a citrus scent to help your pet smell fresh.

Smells terrible!

I got this hoping it would help my Dog Mavi with his many allergies. However on the first use it went great then after his bath I was expecting this amazing smell like the reviews said. Trust me the smell was so horrible. I had to rewash him three times with his other shampoo to just get the smell out. Don’t buy unless you like the smell of burnt hair and rust smell. It may have worked but I just couldn’t handle the smell.

Active ingredients

In the pictures says that has benzoyl peroxide, sulfur and other one. When the product arrive shows that the only active ingredient is the benzoyl peroxide. Its frustrating because I've been looking for this shampoo for long time and its not what is shows in the picture.

Expires in 3 weeks

Gave a 3 star because the soap came today and expires in 3 weeks I have two dogs with allergies and was happy I found this since they don't make my other one I used. I already had one just wanted to stock up with one more. Also my bank shows recurring shipment payment and I paid full price not the auto ship for $18.00. I will be calling to cancel that!

Amazing difference

My Dachshund has Oily Seborrhea which makes her skin oily yet dry, flaky and itchy at the same time. After using this product only once I could see a major difference. Now after three uses you can hardly tell and she's so much more comfortable. Makes her coat soft and shiny.

great shampoo for animals

Used this on stray cat that we brought into our home. It is mild and yet effective. Smells good too. But of course, it took two of us to bath one 10 lb cat. He finally submitted with many unhappy meows. It left his skin clear and conditioned and smelled great for days. It also made the vet happy to hear that we used this one. I would buy it again if ever needed.

Yummy For Any Shampoo

Wow I guess you do get what you pay for, this soap while medicated has the best scent I have encountered for a therapeutic treatment. If you have a need this product is worth the extra cost.

My kitten who was only a few weeks old and was rejected by its mom had been flea bitten and was so tore up he was rotting alive. His skin was so itchy and inflamed he couldn't lay down and was in horrible pain, his skin was producing puss and was losing hair all under his legs and pits,It smelled horrible. He was going to die within that week in sure till i found this. It killed all his fleas and had a instant effect on his smell and some pain it got him through the next two days he was able to eat and lay and use the bathroom after one wash, after the second was he was running around acting like a kitten. After the third wash all scabs and puss and irritation was gone. His fur grew back and never bad any issues again. I didn't have the money at the time for a vet and no vet would accept me due to covid so I used this as a last ditch effort then and I'm glad I found this product and will always have it on hand

Good therapeutic shampoo

Really works on both dry and oily seborrhea. Helps manage the itching dermatitis with its bumps and oozing scabs. It also worked great on a dog that had a persistent flaking problem. I had used lots of supplements in his food, but the shampoo was what finally ended the flakes.
