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.

How about often can you use
Answer by ChewyNov 18, 2018
This product is safe for weekly use, however it is recommended to wash your dog on a monthly basis to prevent their skin from becoming dry.

Am I able to use this conditioner with a different shampoo but it's the same brand?
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2018
This conditioner may be used with other shampoos.

If my dog has a red spot, wil the spray burn him if I spray him with it?
Answer by ChewyJan 15, 2022
This product is a conditioner that needs to be rinsed off; it is not a spray. Veterinary Formula Clinical Care Hot Spot & Itch Relief line provides Hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid to control itching and inflammation while Lidocaine, an over-the-counter analgesic, reduces pain.

What country is it made in ??? Make easy to find out!!! Thank you
Answer by ChewyNov 02, 2020
This product is made in the U.S.

I have used this product on all four of my dogs on two separate occasions, now, and this product has not helped my dogs' itchy skin. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone; however, I have been overall satisfied with over the several years I have used it.

Great Service

The store I usually purchase this shampoo was out of stock. I’m so happy I found it at Chewy. So far, it has worked well for my dog’s itchy paws and skin. Thanks!

Great conditioner for itchy dogs

I used this condition in addition to a veterinary formula tea tree oil shampoo on an elderly chihuahua with itchy, red skin. He looked so much better after just one wash. His skin was less red and inflamed, he wasn’t as itchy, and his coat looked a lot better.

Top 1000 Contibutor

Works great

This soap has hydrocortisone which helps with the itch. It is soap free so it doesn't irritate a hot spot. Highly recommend. Has a nice smell too.

This stuff is amazing!

I recently adopted a new dog. And she came with many skin issues. Scabs. Scraps. Ect. She was itching constantly! So I had this on hand and her skin was doing very well after the first day! She’s not itching anymore and is able to finally be comfortable! Her skin looks amazing! And I absolutely love this brand! I’ll be buying more. Long lasting good sent. This brand is amazing.

Smells pretty good

My dog has severe allergies and needs frequent baths. I brought this to my vet and she said it was decent, however, with the severity of his allergies would recommend something with a higher level of (can’t remember the ingredient). But said definitely use this first as it will do a fair job. Probably would be fantastic for a dog who isn’t allergic to the world and himself.

This was heaven sent for our rescue Senior Pit Bull-she struggles with skin irritation-and this has been the ONLY brand of shampoo & conditioner that truly worked as soon as we put I on her.. we also purchased the spray-that also helps her on targeted areas.
