You may look at this site and think “Why is there a review of dog shampoo?”. Well, I simply believe that for maximum enjoyment from their toys, dogs need to be healthy and happy. As well as that, I want to give as much help and support as I can to dog owners, because we all love our dogs! So, onto the review…
Because it’s winter (well it is in the Northern Hemisphere), and our dogs are all getting wetter and dirtier on their walks, it’s likely the frequency of dog baths is increasing. Now this may not be a full body wash, but perhaps only the legs and under your dog’s belly – anywhere that the mud splatters basically! More washing combined with the contrast of cold temperatures outside and warmer heating indoors, does tend to inflame any underlying skin conditions. For some dogs and owners, the level of itching and scratching can increase to such a point that it becomes quite distressing. Therefore, I wanted to review a medicated dog shampoo, considered by many to be the best dog shampoo for itchy and dry skin.

This shampoo is definitely worth a look if your dog suffers with itchy and dry skin. There are multiple benefits to it’s product formulation, so much so that there have been reviews from people who have used it on themselves too, after struggling to find anything that works on itchy scalps in humans. Please note however that while I endorse this for dogs, I have not tried it on myself, so cannot make any recommendation on people using it on themselves. In order to be extra kind to your dog, I would also do a pre-test on a small piece of affected skin, leaving it for 10 minutes and then rinsing off and waiting for 24 hours to ensure there is no adverse reaction. Every dog is different and may react to medicated or active ingredients i different ways.
