This is a great product. I have tried so many products for my Boxer that has numerous allergies & dry flaky skin. After reading several reviews I decided to try this product and I am so glad I did. Since using this product he no longer has dry flaky skin and scratches A LOT less. He also takes allergy shots and eats grain free food. I HIGHLY recommend this product. I found the best pricing at Entirely Pets and their shipping is fast. I recommend this product.
Prescribed by our veterinarian for my Dachshund with severe skin allergies. Cleanses the skin and relieves her itching. I even use it on my Yorkie who doesn't any skin allergies, but does get itchy from mild dry skin, gives her immediate relief! Great shampoo!
Can't say the smell is wonderful, but after dog is dry, the odor subsides. Take advice of other reviewers and leave the suds on dog for 10 mins. I just wrapped my dog in a big old towel, and cuddled her up in the recliner while I flipped through a magazine. Time passed quickly. After first wash, her intense itch changed to slight and in 24 hours it was gone. I washed her again in 4 days, and again in 6 days. She had no itch by the 2nd wash but wanted to be sure. I have since used her regular shampoo, and will do so until I notice a problem again, then back to Douxo. Worth every cent.
After several rounds of antibiotics, horrible smelling dip, fungicide, special shampoo, twice a month deflea-er for what my Vet described as a type of mange, my Chesapeake Retriever mix (who was a stray) still suffered horribly. Finally had to resort to prednisone -- he was eating himself raw and back to more prednisone. He is now on grain free food and this Duoxo Chlor PS + Climbazole and is doing well. Best of all, it lathers well and is pleasant smelling. He is so much happier and we are too. Worth the price! Highly recommend.
I've used this shampoo for years for my two Havanese girls. Its cost is over double at the canine dermatologist's office. Only problem is trying to keep in their skin for five minutes but I "divide" their bodies in thirds and massage into skin/fur and then go back to rinse. Zero trips to vet if I use this on bimonthly shampoos after years of skin issues every few weeks that involved massive meds and outlay of money. Did the allergy testing and they are allergic to everything outdoors. Changed diet, washed feet and tried everything until dermatologist prescribed this shampoo. Also leaves a soft and shiny coat with a clean smell. I think this is a miracle product and hope it works as well for your animal. Wish you knew me so you could trust me but take the plunge, and you and your sweet animal will be very happy with this purchase. I seldom write reviews but gladly took the time to share this product's results.
My dog suffers from pollen allergies. He has a thin coat on much of his body that leaves skin exposed to the pollen. This product differs from other shampoos I have tried because it leaves a protective coating on the skin after repeated uses. This helps prevent irritation. I shampooed him twice a week for three weeks and now treat him once a week. This is the best shampoo I have found to treat itching, hot spots and licking/biting.
My Boxer has very bad allergies, he had hair loss, dried edges on his ears and constant scratching. I found this product online and am so glad I tried it. Since using this product his coat and skin are better and he is scratching a lot less. I will continue to use this product.
When we adopted Hunter from the shelter, he had numerous patches where no hair was growing and his skin had turned black. The first vet we took him to said we couldn't do anything about it -- that was just the way he was. A different vet suggested we try Duoxo shampoo, on a rigorous washing schedule -- at first, every three days, then once a week, then regular monthly shampoos. It was a lot of work, but now Hunter's black patches are a thing of the past. He has a glorious golden coat, and strangers always comment on how handsome he is. We only shampoo him once a month now, with occasional extra shampoos of his most sensitive areas (pits and feet) during high allergy times. I heartily recommend using Duoxo shampoo for any dog with similar black patch and allergy troubles.
