Can I use Epi-Smoothe Shampoo on a pregnant or lactating animal?
The safe use of this product has not been evaluated in pregnant or lactating dogs.
My Labrador has skin allergies to bug bites and with combined allergy therapy (Cytopoint), the 4HC shampoo and this shampoo it has made so much of a difference. You have to keep on it if allergies are bad. Wash 2-3 times a week if needed, I washed my dog on Wednesday and repeated today and noticed significant improvement in his skin condition. I wish I could by quart size

I wash my dog once a week since I’m a full time RVer and want to keep our tiny space clean. She had been using this shampoo since I got her from the pound March of 2016. Her fur is soft, shiny and never itchy from over washing. Love this product!

My dog has had a yeast infection on his skin for a very long time. Since I have used this shampoo it is under control. He doesn't get that awful smell when it's time for a bath. I recommend this for any dog with skin issues!
This is very good shampoo for dogs with sensitive skin.

I have a cairn terrier and they can have sensitive skin. This is the only shampoo I have ever used on them. I take it to the groomer's where I have her trimmed and have them use this shampoo also.

This product along with other Virbac products totally cleared up my pups skin redness, odor, dandruff, excessive itching and biting. I've been prescribed this product in the past by veterinarians with other dogs and it worked great every time so I decided to try it out on my pup before making a costly vet trip. A little goes a long way with this shampoo. The freshness last over a week. I definitely recommend this to anyone who has a furry friend dealing with skin issues.

I finally found a shampoo to help Lucy with her itchy skin! Being a Blue Nose Pit, she has several allergies. It's hard to find a single product that is effective for all her skin issues.... But this! This shampoo and cream rinse made such a difference for her in just 1 use! Her scratching decreased probably by 80-90%, all of the hives she would develop, the patches of hair loss, redness, rashes, sensitive ears, etc, etc, etc.... About 24hrs after the 1st use, her skin was calm, no more bright red rashes, no more hives, she practically stopped scratching, her coat was beautiful and shiny, so so soft and didn't smell mediciny! She is much happier! The shampoo coats the fur and skin with a barrierI finally found a shampoo to help Lucy with her itchy skin! Being a Blue Nose Pit, she has several allergies.

Since using this shampoo, she has been able to stop taking her allergy medicine, which makes me happy to not have to give her daily meds! Life saver.!!… more
I had High Hopes

I had very high hopes for this shampoo and matching cream rinse. Sadly it didn't help my dog with her itching problem, it seems she is even itchier now after the bath. But that could just be because her skin was so dry to begin with. I won't be buying again. On to the next brand...

Have used this in the past when our doxie mix had skin problems and it cleared them up. Our Australian Shepard mix started scratching and coat seemed to not be as shiny this winter, so thought I'd try it again. Glad I did! After only one use, he hardly scratches at all! Highly recommend!

My kitten has sensitive skin and this shampoo is perfect. Along with the cream rinse, it leaves her fur clean, soft, and shiny. She loves baths so it's no problem for us. She smells wonderful afterwards! The scent is long-lasting, at least on my kitty.
The absolute best!!

This shampoo goes SUCH a long ways!! Our dog is huge and has SO much hair and it usually takes at least half a bottle to fully shampoo her 2 times, but not with this!! Her coat looks amazing and she’s not scratching her skin from her allergies as much!
