The Antiseptic & Antifungal Medicated Shampoo

VFCC Antiseptic & Antifungal Medicated Shampoo helps relieve fungal and bacterial infections like dermatitis and pyoderma caused by cuts, wounds, hyperthyroidism and/or allergies to fleas or foods. If you see redness, malodorous discharge from lesions, darkening skin patches, itchiness, pustules, hair loss, greasiness or scaly skin, your pet may have one of these common conditions.

Itchy skin

While I only used this one time so far it did seem to calm down my pets itchy skin. He always has allergy issues this time of year. Hoping this shampoo will help in the future. It left his fur soft.

Great Product

Love this shampoo for my pup! He has sensitive skin - and although it is not a cure - is does sooth his hotspot. His fur also feels nice and soft after he is bathed.
