So my one year old Golden Retriver/Border Collie/American Shepard was having horrible, red, flakey hives under his armpits and chest. The poor doggo was scratching a lot and it looked so painful! I didn't know exactly what it was, but I knew if I took him to the vet, that would end up being like a $300 visit. I bought this cream and within TWO treatments, his issues are about 98% gone!!!! His skin is flaking far less, the redness is gone and the hives are gone. I cannot recommend this enough! It does smell strongly of menthol, which they added to keep pup from licking the cream. My dog is melodramatic and ran around like crazy, then just laid there looking pathetic, but was fine. Buy the cream. Just do it.
This seems to sting my dog's irritated skin. My one dog, who is normally tolerant of ointments yelped and ran away when this touched his skin. I thought maybe I poked him with the q-tip I was using to apply, so I tried on my other dog. My other dog jumped and started biting at her paw. It got in her mouth and she ran around hissing and rubbing her face on the carpet desperately trying to get the stuff out of her mouth. I didn't realize that some of the ingredients are toxic if ingested. But even if they weren't, I wouldn't recommend this. It clearly hurts their skin. :-(
Bought for my 130 St Bernard hot spot. Each time, he would get anxious and confused. Something in the ingredients that caused this anxiety and confusion that lasted hours. Do not buy, very concerned it affected my dog and Chewy continue to sell this
My 12 almost 13 year old PittBull has bad allergies, it caused sores all over her body,so bad she had some staph. Terrible, I don't know how much money I've spent on sprays,creams,ointment, dyi,everything. I tryed this sulfodene ointment one day on 5 of her staph/allergy sores. The next day I go to wash her skin with some disposable coconut wipes, I was surprised how 3 sores were already to slough off. Day by day I used the ointment with each day sores continued to come off. Her hair came off with the sores as well, but getting rid of those horrible sores was a blessing. So it was a blessing for me to find this ointment. Also severe rough elbows , this ointment smoothed her elbows as well. I scratched of lightly massaged her with eco friendly leave in conditioner I bought from chewy as well a few times lightly ran my nails as if I was scratching her, well with all that sores about all gone. Yay!!!, Also added a little ointment where bald spots are. I didn't use on her feet where she licks them because of the menthol smell,and her rubbing her eyes with her feet. The smell doesn't bother me. The smell doesn't seem to bother her. I do put eco leave in conditioner on her feet. Her paws are not dry now and not cracked but she still licks them. I might try in the future to put this wonderful sulfodene cream on one foot at a time see if it cure her paws as good as it did her Sores on skin. I will be ordering more of this Happy Mom Happy Doggie. I give this as many stars as possible!!!
I didn’t realize this product had tea tree oil in it. It is known to be toxic to dogs, especially in a product sold to be used for wounds/sores where the can penetrate in easily. Furthermore it caused my dog to have a rash where I applied this… I wonder if the oily/petroleum jelly consistency is what helps the dog and not this product. I wish I had read the ingredients before.
I applied this to my lab’s elbows because she has small callouses and I am desperate to get rid of them. I bought this and had been using it for two days now and my dog has been lethargic (very uncommon for my 1 y/o lab. The only thing I changed was this ointment and I noticed today that it has tea tree oil listed as one of the ingredients! I will not continue use of this item on my dog and she is going to the vet first throng tomorrow morning!
I got this for my dog who likes to climb tree trunks, his paws get tore from it and I figured this would be a good healing ointment. He ended up licking some ointment off his paws and had to go to the emergency vet, the ingredients have tea tree which is great for healing but highly toxic for dogs. Glad I caught it now and didn’t use it again. If there is even a small change they can lick it don’t use it!
My lab/border collie mix had a pretty bad underarm rash and skin issues around that area. After using EcoMange around that area and using Sulfodene his skin is no longer scaly and fur is growing back. I grab this stuff and Atticus comes and lay down for pampering.
My sweet dachshund/chihuahua has had a hell of a time with itchy skin. I’ve tried a lot of different over the counter products when the vet prescribed products failed us. As soon as I put this ointment on my dog, she seemed SO relieved. It’s thick, applies well, smells like Vic’s and when I got some on my own skin I could tell how good it must feel on her hot spots! It’s menthol/tingly. Will never buy another product for itchy dog skin again.
We have tried EVERYTHING for cysts on the paws of our English Bulldog. This ointment is helping more than the $150/LED treatments, so we will keep working with it!
