NOT Same product
by Dog Shampoo12/13/2012
Purchased a DERMA BENSS shampoo before, but seems to be discontinued. This is only by the same company, not the same shampoo as before. Most of the reviews on the previous shampoo was raving about how great it is. BUT, seems to make the fur dryer, not as glossy, just that it's antimicrobial. This last purchase, have not used yet. Don't know how good this one is yet. Price going up.
I already did a review when I first started using this. I can't say that my two stars are fair as I don't know if it is only my dogs that have such adverse effects.
Great deal on a wonderful product

This shampoo does what it says. My dog's skin is clear and the fragrance is pleasant--mild and not overpowering or too perfumey. The price is great and the deal is just perfect when there is a "no shipping" special. I love this product and your company. Thanks!
Excellent Product & Service
We have been using this shampoo for our Miniature Schnauzer for about 3 years.. It is excellent treatment for the "Schnauzer bumps" "comedone syndrome" on her back.
A Very Good Buy
Our dog suffers from seborrhea oleosa. There has been a definite improvement in our dog's coat. Much of the scaliness and greasiness has improved, and she smells much, much, much better!
I was on a mission to try every medicated shampoo on my dog to see which one worked the best. This was one of the shampoos I tried.
VERY GOOD PRODUCT,WILL REORDER WHEN I NEED TO.

Have been using it for a while for hair growth, but I am still bald. I guess I will have to go back to egg white and honey.

The Shampoo is very nice and leaves the coat shiny and sweet smelling. It does seem to counteract the skin problems and bad odor.

This has become the all time favorite shampoo for my dog. It leaves her coat shiny and smelling great while taking care of her skin problem by keeping it clear. No more scratching. The groomer loves it too!
My lil girl has red mange with infection and this shampoo gave her immediate comfort and healing! I am going to order a 2nd bottle to continue helping her healing and as a monthly treatment to keep her skin free of infection or hot spots.
After $1k in allegy testing and other shampoos,antibiotics,etc...this WORKS! Best I have found for my schnauzers skin condition:bumps and staph. Combined with a white vinegar and tap water rinse. 1c vinegar :1gl water and food change to "Wellness", the condition is well under control. Great product and smells wonderful too.
Shampoo is great. Shipping method of last order in Dec., 2012 took 9 days to get to me and I needed it before that. I can go to the store and buy it, will not order anything again as shipping takes too long.

Also purchased for my Schnauzers due to sensitive skin and will be sticking to this product. Fluffed the hair and made it baby soft! No more itching! Schnauzers are happy and healthy again. Highly recommend this Shampoo! Also recommend Entirelypets.com for fast service and excellent tracking communication!
Excellent skin shampoo
My cockerspaniel has been plagued with skin staph since she was 2 years old. Dermabens thoroughly cleanses the skin, gets rid of debris, is gentle and non-irritating. Also, she didn't break out like she normally does and hasn't been scratching since her bath.

Excellent product for pets who have sensitive skin. I have been using this for already 5 years and every time it is my last solution. My dog get skin irritation every summer. I first try to determine if those are fleas and at the end I used this product and it help my dog from just one use. Of course I continue using it 2-3 times a week and my dog stops itching, all hot spots go away and the dog can finally sleep calmly at night.
medicated or poisonous
I have 2 dogs and used it on both. On one it aggravated a itching area which developed into a very large hot spot in 2 days, requiring vet treatment. The other dog began furious itching after the bath and I needed to use a sooting conditioner to remove as much of it as possible. I won't touch this product again. Threw it out.
I am a dog groomer and have found that this shampoo gets amazing results on dog with skin problems. I have at least 4 dog with very bad skin that were almost completly cleared up.

I bought this for my schnoodle. She gets lots of irritations and I've already identified allergies, at least some that I can. This shampoo made such a difference. Then I used it on my 50 pound dog who now and then would chew at the base of his tail. Within a day, he had developed a silver dollar sized hotspot and in two days it was 4 times that large and infected. Well, you might wonder why I am recommending this anyway. It finally occurred to me that I changed his high grade can food (which I mix with good kibble in the am) to cans from Trader Joe's, hoping to save some money. After two weeks of that, I think his body rebelled.He's better now, but it was rough. My poodle mix does so well with it that I am sold. I will even bring it to the groomer when I go. Good stuff!
Great Shampoo for skin conditions

Being burdened with allergies, and a compromised immune system, my dog has benefitted greatly from weekly washings. DermaBenSS has been a huge part in keeping recurring staph infections at bay.
My golden retriever has a skin condition that cleared up using this product. I tried many others that didn't work. Will continue to use it to keep her skin clear. Great product.
I have field dogs who in the summer swim in ponds that cattle have access too. Yes you can imagine what is probably growing in those ponds!
My Doberman had such a problem with skin irritation, itching and flaking when we got her from a Doberman Rescue shelter that I was very much concerned that she might have to be put to sleep. She had extreme itching, flaking and bloody spots that almost looked like mange. The odor of her skin was absolutely terrible.
I tried everything that I could even think of. I took her to a Veterinary Specialist and had many tests run on her at great expense. I paid out close to $3000 dollars trying to treat her. They finally sold me a bottle of shampoo that kind-of worked. The cost was about $30 a bottle. I began searching for that shampoo on-line to try and get a better price than $30. I came across this site and they did not have the one we got from the Vet Specialist, but had this one and it had some similar ingredients. It was called DermaBenSs. The price was about 1/3 the cost of the brand I got from the Vet.
I was very skeptical on the effectiveness, you never know if someone has truly written the reviews from experience or if they are someone trying to plug the product. The DermaBenSs worked WaaaaY better than the shampoo I got from the Vet Specialist. My Doberman's hair was so thin that it looked like she was going bald. She was so bad that my Vet gave her a steroid injection that gave her severe incontinence. Even tho it gave her relief from itching, I would not do that again. The incontinence is something you don't want to have a problem with.
Back on subject, her itching and flaking is well under control now. Her hair has grown back and looks really nice except for a couple of areas where the Vet Specialist took skin plugs from her worst spots to analyze and test them. Most people think that she is a Show-Dog. This is not a miracle cure and might not work for your dog, but I am extremely happy. It would have ripped my heart out to have her put to sleep. She does still nibble a bit but is 500% better than before with a beautiful coat. I am getting ready to order another 6 bottles of the product. Like I said, this may not work for your dog, but it stands tall in my book. I took an empty bottle to my regular Vet and they plan to order it in for other dogs with skin disorders. I will continue to use it until I find something better, but I doubt it will come.
Another thing I will mention. The directions say to give the dog a bath twice a week. I am now down to giving her a bath once every week and sometimes every two weeks. It would be better if she still got the bath weekly. She is my "Buddy" and sticks to me like glue. She now sleeps snuggled right next to me every night. I put her in the shower with me, lather her up real good with the DermaBenSs and let it soak while I shower and wash my hair. Then I rinse her off. She holds her legs up one at a time for me to wash them. Can you tell that I love this dog?
GREAT Medicated Shampoo
from Mesquite, NV12/03/2013
My vet had recommended this product for one of my other dogs and I have continued using it any time my dog(s) have any itching or scratching for no apparent or obvious reason. It works great and smells wonderful too!
I bought this as an alternative to Pyoben for my dog with chronic seborrhea. Unlike Pyoben, it also contains salicylic acid AND a conditioner. So although it may be more drying, I suppose the conditioner offsets it. It seems to work as well as Pyoben but it has an almond-coconut frangrance that I can do without. Pyoben is not scented, hooray.

My black lab Minnie had a terrible fungal infection with severe hair loss and skin irritation. After several hundreds of $$ at vet for medicine, expensive shampoo and no results, I started using DermaBenSs and the improvement is amazing. Her hair is growing back and she no longer constantly licks, scratches and chews herself. Thank you from both Minnie and me.
This product was recommended by a canine dermatologist who has since retired. It works well, and I was very grateful to find it online.
Really helps my dog
My cocker spaniel has a skin condition and this shampoo keeps her skin smooth and free from breakouts.
from Corte Madera, CA04/20/2013
My rescue dog had mange and I tried different shampoos and treatments. She had to be on antibiotics initially, which made her sick and vomit, and Ivermectin for many months. But I started using this, shampooing her every other day and leaving it on as directed for 15 minutes before rinsing (while taking Ivermectin). It was great, made her smell good, relieved the itching, and made her skin less flaky. The vet said that it was the reason she didn't continue to get secondary skin infection and need more antibiotics, so I think DermaBenSS is the best. It made my beloved puppy much more comfortable and more cuddly (mange stinks!).

this shampoo is the only one i know of that has the combination of ingredients i was looking for. i use this on my poodle mix that has the demodex mite as well as a poodle with bad allergies. this shampoo will help lift the waxy buildup from the skin and diminish skin irritation.follow up with a skin conditioner to prevent overdrying the skin.
