Product identical to much more expensive shampoo sold exclusively by VCS pet clinic.
from Monterey, CA08/08/2014
One of my German Shepherds has always had skin and coat issues. He's a rescue. I have tried many different things, including a dog dermatologist (not cheap) who did various tests, including diet, allergies, etc. The one thing that finally helped was this shampoo, which the dermatologist sold as a "prescription shampoo" at a much higher price. I found this shampoo online here at at least $10 less than the "prescription" price. As long as I shampoo my GSD every 4 weeks, his skin is good, he doesn't chew, and keeps his hair, all the problems I've had before. As soon as he goes a little longer between shampoos, he starts to chew and his skin becomes red and inflamed. I keep a reminder every month for his shampoo. I'll have to do this for the rest of his life I guess, but otherwise he's uncomfortable and loses his coat!
This has helped my pet, but BAD packaging.
My pet is allergic to grass and pollen. The vet recommended a shampoo with one of the ingredients that this one has. I chose this one for the other ingredients that I thought would add more help for my pet's skin. It has really decreased the scratching and chewing. BUT, the packaging was Terrible. The shampoo was sent in a padded envelope with a piece of scotch tape over the lid. This allowed this very expensive shampoo to leak out. It was all inside and outside the envelope. This product needs to be sent in a box with lots of packing material to prevent leakage!!!
from Manhattan Beach, CA07/19/2014
it is gentle and therapeutic and recommended for my elderly dog's skin problems. I apply it every other day for 10 minutes on her hot spots and them rinse well. It helps with healing.
Best shampoo for doags
from Memphis TN12/05/2013
While our Scotties are "inside" pets this helps prevent scratching and has a nice, clean smell--not overly perfumed
from Rossville, TN08/05/2014
My German Shepherd has horrible allergies (takes shots twice a week), spends a lot of time in my pond, and is a Certified Therapy Dog. So, he gets bathed frequently. This shampoo soothes his skin & prevents secondary infections, plus it keeps his coat soft and shiny. Best of all, it rinses out completely and easily. I'll never use anything else!
Speedy delivery. Will purchase again. No allergic reaction to our pet.
Using this weekly on my dog who has lots of allergies that affect his skin. It really helps. It lathers well and rinses out easily.
Two Thumbs up
from WESTERN NY03/15/2013
Great item keeps Duchess from itching and her skin and coat looking great for about 4 weeks.
Excellent Skin Treatment
Duoxo shampoo has virtually no scent, and is clear. It has been highly recommended by a vet who deals with skin diseases as a treatment for staph infections of the skin. I used it for that purpose on my elderly Papillon when antibiotics were only partially effective. It is pleasant to work with and very effective if used frequently when such a disease is present. Not for general use; this is a chlorhexidine treatment for dermatological skin disease. Highly recommended.
best shampoo so far
This was recommended by the allergist. 5 year old female German Shepherd sheds less, her fur is so soft and smells good longer that a few days.
by A believer01/10/2014
My 5 year old Shepard has a bacterial and fungus infection. He just kep scratching like crazy. My vet recommended Duxo shampoo for this type of infection. I was a little leery but I tried it, and after his bath he stop scratching, the infection is going away. If anybody has a dog with this type of infection I recommend trying this shampoo, it does work.
from Atlanta, GA08/03/2012
Have been using Douxo - Chlorhexidine PS + Climbazole Shampoo for about a year. Works great on my itchy dogs! Finally some relief and no skin infections or irritations in one year. Also much cheaper than what the vet charges!!!
helps reduce redness on sore areas of my havanese
Saved my Frenchie
This product helped me get through the first issue of yeast with my Frenchie. Since this breed was new to me I had no idea how to take care of this. Between my breeder and my vet I was advised to use Duoxo, both the pads and shampoo. Now with my second Frenchie I know to use Duoxo at the first sign of yeast! Not a big problem any more! Thanks to Duoxo!
Been using this product for years!
from Willmar, MN01/08/2014
If your canine or feline kid has skin problems this is a miracle and the only way to go!
Best Medicated Shampoo
I've been using this product for several years because it was recommended by my dermatology veterinarian for my shelties with various skin problems. It has been very effective.
from Coral Springs, FL11/06/2012
Keeps my Westie from itching, smells great, and a great price! The doggie skin doctor charges way too much for this product! Glad I found you online. You have great prices!
shampoo works great
from Mystic Ct10/22/2012
Less itching after bath downside is the cost
by Bath timw08/05/2013
I like the product, but wish it came in a larger/gallon size, instead of having to buy multiple small bottles.
Also, one of the bottles in my last shipment was leaking.
from Oceanside CA11/05/2012
I love this shampoo, my dogs were itching and uncomfortable the male had hot spots. I tried this shampoo and they are itching less and the hot spots heal faster. Great smell and after a bath they don't have that wet fur smell.

Works great. Have a shar-pei and it is great stuff
excellent product for allergic dog
by lab lover
Excellent product for allergic lab. Keeps outbreaks under control but you have to use it on a regular basis. Great price -much cheaper than buying from vet.
from Frankfort, IL03/15/2012
This product seems to be working very well. It does not have a bad smell like I read in a review. Our dog does not seem to mind it at all. I would definitely recommend it if you think your dog's skin problem could be due to a yeast infection.
Best Shampoo For Skin Allergies
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!
by Wiener mom06/27/2012
I bought the DOUXO shampoo for my dog and got more than twice the product at the same price that I paid at the vet.
Definitive Medicated Shampoo Relief
from Northern California12/29/2012
Entirely Pets has become my go-to site for securing highly effective products in treating my dog's skin conditions. Douxo - Chlorhexidine PS + Climbazole Shampoo is a product that I was getting through my vet -- and then they discontinued it and opted for another product that cost more and was less effective in controlling my dog's chronic bacterial folliculitis outbreak. This product works great and dries up hot spots, pustules and rawness with usually just one bathing. The key to this product is the Chlorhexidine -- which surgeons often prescribe to patients to aid healing and fight potential infections. I highly recommend using this product -- and it leaves the dogs smelling good and conditions the coat too.
Recommeded by my dogs Dermatologist
from Waldorf, MD03/12/2013
Our dogs have food and/or environmental allergies. In addition to prescription food, Atopica and other wallet effecting actions we have to bathe Tahoe every week and the girls every other week. KetoChlor and Douxo are both recommended and effect different irritants so we follow our Dermatologists instructions to go two weeks on the KetoChlor and two weeks on the Douxo. The GREAT thing about the Douxo is that it lathers great, so you can cut it with a little water and get to work bathing using what you need. You need to leave it on the dog for 10 minutes and then rinse. If you rinse before then you are wasting your money because by leaving it on that is when it is able to affect the yeast and other microbes on the skin. It rinses easily and leaves a mild smell not overly scented. KetoChlor is vital to our therapy because it controls different microbes that Douxo does not, but it does not lather well at all, so you tend to use a lot more product and it takes longer to rinse because you've used more product. Douxo only comes in smaller 16.9 oz bottles so I wait until one of Entirely Pets great sales, KetoChlor is avail in gallon size but requires prescription from your Derm/vet. Both products have been vital in helping with our dog's battles with allergies. While our GSD's have a lot of health problems we wouldn't give any of them up for anything! I took off one star because they don't offer the Douxo in a more economical size. I use 2/3 of a bottle on Tahoe alone.
Best Shampoo for Skin Infections
Our dog (a Yorkie) had been on antibiotics for a year...due to a bladder infection that would not go away. The antibiotics depleted the natural bacteria in my dog, causing yeast on his body. His skin was sores, scabs. His ears, eyes and throat were infected. He was so miserable. I began using Probiotics , sold by Entirely Pets = Total-Zymes and Total-Biotics.. Feb 2013 to get his system back in balance. It took about 3 months for the probiotics to start working. Sept 2013...he was doing excellent compared to where we started. As of Sept 2013..he would have a sore on his body (belly, back, neck) Usually no more than one...but, one was too many!!! I began using the Douxo Shampoo...TOTALLY UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!! After the first bath....his skin started completely healing. Three days later another bath...Three days later another bath...now, he gets his bath once a week. There are NO sores on him at all. This is the best shampoo. I have recommended this product to friends that say their dogs have an odor even after a bath. NO more odor...after the first bath. Yes, I recommend this product. My furry kid is now completely happy and healthy....that makes me happy!!!! Thank You Douxo...... Thank You Entirely Pets for carrying this product. I am and will continue to be a loyal customer.
this shampoo was recommended for my bulldog by her dermatologist. And this site is the only one I could find it on. It is much cheaper here than the doctor. They shampoo works wonderful and helps keep her skin clear and free from itchy spots. She gets a bath once a week and sometimes twice a week and it works well. Contact time with the shampoo is key 10 to 15 minutes. The shampoo lathers nicely versus other brands.

I made the switch from Etiderm Shampoo for my 6 year old Chessie who has terrible allergies. I started out bathing her 2x a week and now am at 1x a week. Seems to work great! And it smells good, too!
by Cindy P
from Buffalo, NY10/19/2011
We have been bathing our minature schnauzer with this shampoo for a few weeks now and the itching and dry skin have greatly subsided. We've tried everything to get his dry skin rash to go away so he would stop scratching himself raw and this seems to have done the trick.
I use this on a doberman pincher that has really bad skin - I bath him once a week and allow it to stay on for 10 min - rinse then towel dry - no dryer
Nice and gentle shampoo
This shampoo helps the skin and odor of my English Bulldog.
Great for hot spots
from Aiea, HI08/17/2012
I tried various types of medicated shampoos with high prices but this is the best for my dog's seborrhea and folliculitis. The fragrance is wonderful!
by Brodie's Mom
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.
from Moro Bay Ca07/18/2012
My Yorkie has been scratching way too much.
I now use douxo Chlorhexidine PS Shampoo and a diet of Flint River Ranch Duck and Oatmeal Nuggets and the constant scratching has stopped and my little girl, once more, enjoys life!!

Transforming Skin Product
from Webster, NY02/14/2014
This shampoo is awesome! For years I have struggled with numerous remedies for my dog's itchy, flaky skin. Nothing worked until I tried this product! This is a fabulous price too! I paid so much more when I bought it directly from my vet. If your dog or cat has skin problems, this is a must try!
This shampoo is very expensive and to lose any of it in transit is extremely annoying. The snap-close lid was taped with a wide piece of cellophane tape and the bottle shipped in a padded envelope. Naturally, the bottle leaked and the soap caused the pitiful piece of tape to release. It was a mess when I opened the package and the waste was absolutely unnecessary. Otherwise, the shampoo really helped my dog.
We have purchased this product from the vet and in stores. This is the best value for a medicated shampoo that truly works. I recommend it to all.
from West Hills, CA01/16/2015
Recommended by my vet for dog's skin problems.
She had a rough inflamed spot. Don't have to use much to get lots of lather. Soothing to dog's skin and I noticed an improvement almost immediatly.
I will always use this for her baths.
My miniature schnauzer constantly had "schnauzer itch" skin allergy for the first 12 years of her life, going through a variety of antibiotics that "sort-of" worked. Then I discovered Duoxo Chlorhex PS shampoo. I bathe her religiously twice a week, and she hasn't been to the vet for skin itch in 2 years.
from Duoxo - It Works!TRY
Heaven sent with a great scent!
from NYC, NY02/14/2013
Other shampoos that are medicated leave a funny odor, but not this one! It also has a great lathering action... Just the best, and thank God for it! Max even enjoys the "bouncing and behaving" lift it gives to his coat.
from Olympia, WA09/08/2013
Just what the Skin and Allergy Doctor told us to buy. Works great!
This shampoo does a very good job in helping the skin heal from infections. It really helps the itching and the coat is lovely and shiny afterwards (and it smells great). Since it must be left on I use this time to massage and bond with my foster rescue dogs. They love it.
Great dog shampoo
from Portsmouth, VA05/03/2013
My 7 year old Shih tzu has terrible environmental allergies that make her bite and scratch CONSTANTLY. The meds she is taking are helping but I wanted to get a shampoo that would enhance her pills. The Duoxa with Climbazole works great for her. We have tried a lot of different mediums - even organics - but nothing works as well as this shampoo!
from Maricopa, AZ03/04/2014
Excellent Deal! My Lhasa Apso has several allergies and getting this shampoo from my Vet was quite costly. Finding your website and your products has really made a significant change in both my life and my dog Brûlée! Thank-you! <3
My Newfie goes for hydrotherapy in an indoor pool every week for hip displasia. He developed skin lesions from the chemicals. The vet suggested to useduoxochlorine shampoo-let it stay on 5 min then rinse. No more skin problems. Your price was half of what the vet charged for the shampoo.
I saved 50 % by purchasing this shampoo on this site instead of the vets office.

from New Jersey09/10/2013
My sheltie had a really bad skin infection all over. Used this with Calm mousse. His skin is beautiful! No more itching and the raw infected bald spots are cleared up!! Love this shampoo!!

My dog has very itchie skin. This product sooths and kills fles on contact. Love thius shampoo
My vet recommended! Awesome Product!!!
from North Bend, Washington12/04/2012
I love this shampoo. I had tried several things from my regular vet. He sent me to a dermatologist vet and he recommended this product. What a difference. It has given my Chesapeake so much relief!! Much cheaper on this site than purchasing from the vet!!!
very effective and gentle
my dog has seasonal allergies to outside allergens. This product cleared up infections that were secondary to the allergy, and maintained the coat quality
by Dog Lover02/06/2012
LOVE THIS PRODUCT! MY AUSSIE IS SO SOFT AND SHE SEEMS SO MUCH HAPPIER! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE THAT WANTS THERE DOG'S COAT TO BE SOFTER AND THEIR SKIN MOISTURIZED!
Really the best shampoo for my pup
from Carlsbad, CA01/28/2015
Great product, it does what it promises to do, and it has helped with the healing of my dog's skin, and that, to me, is the greatest thing. Perhaps I was suffering more that my dog was, but this shampoo helped him to feel better in a great way. I continue bathing him with it every other week, per his doctor's instructions. Absolutely good product.
Does wonders for irritated skin
from Downers Grove, IL09/15/2013
My dog suffers from environmental allergies and after trying several types of shampoos I have finally found one that calms her skin and keeps her from scratching herself bloody. I recommend it highly!
It really works
Simply the best shampoo I've used to help with bacterial skin infections on dogs of all sorts. I find it works best if I give them one bath with a mild shampoo first, then use Douxo for the second bath and let it soak for 10 minutes.
by Kinu's Mom
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.
THIS IS A REALLY GOOD PRODUCT
IT HAS HELPED MY 120 LB ALL AMERICAN BULLDOG WITH HIS SKIN PROBLEMS. I GIVE HIM A BATH EVERY SUNDAY WITH THE SHAMPOO, ALL I TELL HIM IS LETS TAKE A BATH AND HE JUMPS IN THE TUB
The only product that has worked on my dog.
from Jacksonville, Florida12/12/2011
My older, allergy-prone dachshund has chronic skin problems but this shampoo and the chlorhexidine wipes have helped him tremendously. He gets frequent baths and in between I can treat his problem patches with the wipes. This shampoo was recommended by my vet but he charges a lot more.
from Sheboygan, WI01/30/2015
It was suggested by my vet for my dog's incredibly sensitive, itchy skin and it's the first shampoo that seems to really work for her - she's not a fan of baths, but has come to appreciate it (sort of) with this new shampoo.
Chlorhexidine Shampoo helped Save Our Big Boy
by Bullmastiff Partners
from Chicago, IL09/12/2012
Our Big Boy, Grider, a Bullmastiff, had terrible skin issues which were preventing therapy for wobblers. Washing Grider twice a week keeps his skin clear of most blemishes and when they do appear they heal almost overnight after a bath. This is now part of his routine of Heartguard and Frontline.
Works well for yeast infections
by Peggy Sue
from Hot Springs Village, AR09/01/2014
I have a Shih Tzu who has skin yeast infection which is aggravated by humidity. Although she had the condition when we lived in California, it did not cause her any problems. Now that we have moved to Arkansas, the humidity has exacerbated her condition and she gets very oily, itchy and her skin is very irritated. She kept biting and scratching and hurting herself. She was suffering. I purchased this product and it gave her relief. I do have to bathe her 2-3 times a week to keep the condition under control.
Works well and has no real medicinal odor.
Best Shampoo for Skin problems
My english bulldog had several spots on his back that he was losing hair...I started using this shampoo weekly and they are all gone!
Douxo - chlorhexidine PS Shampoo was prescribed by my Veterinarian. I purchased the larger size from Entirely Pets to help with his seborrhea skin condition. It cast less and helps with the skin problem.
by Happy Dog Owner
from Darrington, WA11/13/2011
This shampoo works very well on my little Shihtzu. She is much more comfortable after her bath. I am also very satisfied with the service provided. Thanks again. Pat (and Biscuit)
Goodbye oily, scaly, itchy skin
This product saves me trips to the vet. After being diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis and prescribed Douxo, my Cairn Terrier's, Simon, skin is now much improved. No more itching, hair has regrown on his feet, and with a bath 1-2 times/week, he smells fresh & clean. A two thumbs up for this product!!!
from Annapolis, Maryland08/25/2014
I use this shampoo on a Red Doberman that gets a type of skin "acne" and it keeps it under control and as long as she is shampooed on a weekly basis, you never see a bump.
Excellent medicated shampoo
I have a Great Pyrenees with major skin issues. He has flare ups several times a year, and although we do our best to control it through nutrition and environment we keep this shampoo on hand for times when his skin needs attention. This shampoo is excellent! When we notice skin lesions starting to form, we use this shampoo once every couple of days on the affected areas until healed. I've found it really reduces the intensity and duration of skin infections, helps control his itching, and keeps his skin calm for healing. I've used other universal medicated shampoos before, but for my dog this works best. I highly recommend it!
Love this product!
Improved the condition of my French Bulldog's skin due to allergies. Use it twice a week in the beginning and then continue to use for maintenance. Pleasant scent.
This is a great product
by Boxer Mom
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.
Good for my dogs yeast problems
from Cincinnati, Ohio11/20/2013
This product is good for my dog's yeast problems, although she still needs a bath every week, but that beats every three days with other products. Nice smell and good sud-sing action.
blessing to us
My sheltie has allergys an oily fur. I bathe her once a week with this shampoo. If I use anything else she will scratch an itch constantly, I have used this shampoo the last three years an cannot use any thing else. This was recommended by a doctor we took her to that specializes in allergys for dogs.
Good delivery but diluted product
I have been using this product since 2010. I have used entirelypets many times and very happy with their customer service.
But the last time I recieved this product (May 2012), it looked like the product was diluted (not as concentrated as it used to be). I do not know if the manufacturer did it this way.
In general, this is a good product
Douxo shampoo is the best!
Douxo Chlorhexidine PS shampoo for dogs was recommended by a veterinary dermatologist a few years ago when our Pug experienced severe skin problems. This shampoo is simply the best to keep his skin clear and his coat is now beautiful, shiny, and soft. The product is concentrated so a bottle lasts a long while and is worth every penny! We have used this shampoo for about 4 years and am very happy with the results. It is the only shampoo for our Pug :)
Love this shampoo
from Lake Worth, fl01/14/2014
This is great shampoo for dogs with ear or skin issues. I wash my dog once a week and leave it on for 10 min. and it almost keeps him from itching completely. Wonderful product. As a matter of fact this was sold by my dogs Dermatologist @ 65.00 a bottle.
from Los Angeles, CA08/04/2013
Love this shampoo...gentle and effective. Great for sensitive skin.
best product for my dog
I was suggested to try this shampoo for my scottish terrier with severe skin issues and allergys. she is 8 years old and has been suffering since 6 weeks old. i have tried prescription foods and shampoos for years. since starting with douxo i have been able to reduce bathing her once a week instead of daily or every other day. her coat has improved for the first time in her life. she is sweet smelling ,the coat is glossy and thicker. every one who sees her can't believe the difference.i tell anyone who has a dog with skin problems about my luck in learning about douxo.
has worked wonders
my poor boxer has suffered from allergies since he was 9 months old he is 7 yrs now and this is the first time that i have seen such a great improvement,and we have tried everything from allergy shots for a yr. to a drug called cyclosprine which cost $200.00 a month and we did that for a yr. also we have used this shampoo for 2 weeks and what a difference...
from San Diego, CA09/29/2013
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.
by Gusto's mom10/23/2012
Excellent product! I have a toy poodle who is prone to very sensitive skin, this shampoo is great for him!
Douso-Chlorhexidine PS shampoo
from Orlando, fl06/08/2013
this product was recommended by my vet and I feel it helps my dog's allergies as they seem to itch less after shampooing them in this product.
Great for Our Dog's Itchy Skin
Our dog has seasonal allergies and as a result is very itchy. This shampoo was recommended by our vet and it works great. It has helped tremendously and our dog's coat and skin looks great now. Though pricey, the results we've seen with this shampoo are worth it for us.
Several years ago my beautiful Samoyed was diagnosed with Alopecia X . He has had NO fur on his back, belly or tail during this time. Since using the Douxo Shampoo,along with a Virbac product called Resi Chlor Leave on Lotion , he is now growing patches of fur. I have been using these products for approx. two months and will continue to use them as long as I am seeing these results. For the first time in a long time I feel there is hope !!!
I have been using this product with my cocker for 13 months. Prior to using it, she had been on antiboitics and steriods for 5 years in an attempt to control skin allergies. I was getting ready to have her tested for allergies when my vet gave me a sample to use. I knew after the first bath, she was better. She now has beautiful skin and is always being complemented. She takes no medication for her allergies! I don't know how much longer she would have lived had we not found this shampoo!
cat - dandruff
My cat has oily fur and constant, bad dandruff. The only way I can keep it under control is to bathe him with this shampoo. It really makes a huge difference. My cat is getting used to the every other week bath.

Effective shampoo for dogs with skin allergies
from Phoenix, AZ12/27/2012
We have found this product to be the most effective shampoo for our dog who suffers from a wide range of allergies which result in skin rashes and discomfort. It is gentle enough to be used several times a week when necessary and does not dry out her coat.
Best Chlorhex I've used
by Gary B.12/08/2009
My miniature schnauzer has had "schnauzer bumps" (allergic reaction infections) for years. I've used several shampoos (many chlorhex), and found this Duoxo Chlorhex PS to be the best. Bathing twice a week with it, adding fish oil supplement, and antibiotic treatment is now almost a thing of the past.
Great for calming skin irritations & allergies
Douxo Chlorhexadine Shampoo
from Central Coast, CA11/23/2011
This shampoo saved me a lot of trips and money to the animal dermatologist. My English bulldog used to have black scaly bumps growing on his skin, which we learned were over-producing hair follicles (folliculitis). We use this shampoo once or twice a week (depending on his skin that week) and we have not been back to the dermatologist in 5 months.
Love this item
My dog Duce suffers from severe allergies and we originally got this item from his dermatologist as a prescription. I live one hour from the dermatologist and it was not always convenient to get. I saw the item on entirely pets and I never have to get it from the dermatologist because it comes right to my door and costs less too!
My 11 year old Shih Tzu has suffered with skin allergies for years. I have taken him to specialists, tried multiple medications, diets and shampoos with no relief. A friend who rescued a dog with the same skin issues recommended this shampoo. In just a week, my little guy's skin has cleared up dramatically. I am so happy not to have to watch him suffer! Thank You Douxo and Entirely Pets!!
Really works on sores!
Clears up sores on my dog when I use it regularly.
from glendora, calif08/07/2013
Shampoo was the exact same as the one purchased from the veterinarian, at a much lower price. Your response was quick and the delivery was even quicker.
My vet recommended this product for my Schnauzer who has allergies that produce skin issues. I have only used it twice but it has already made a huge difference. I also changed his dog food so, with both treating him at the same time, he is almost cleared up. It is an amazing product.
by dog lover12/31/2013
works great - have used for few years now.
good medicated shampoo
from San Diego01/04/2012
Have been using this on my dog for about 2 years. His skin takes a beating as he visits the beach quite a bit and is in the salt water a lot. This shampoo seems to sooth his irritated skin. Make sure you lather up good, working the lather into the coat and skin, AND leave the lather on him for about 5 min in order to get maximum effect. This product does not help with all types of skin irritations - check with your vet first before using.
Great shampoo for skin conditions that respond to chlorhexidine. Smells great, leaves the coat soft and shiny and has a rich lather very quickly. Recommend this shampoo for sure and entirely pets has a great price on it too!!
by doxie mom
from Long Island, New York12/23/2013
I purchased this based on other customer reviews for my 6 yr. old dachshund. His skin was terrible. He was constantly scratching and his skin was flaky. I tried the most expensive prescription shampoos from the vet but nothing worked. I used this for two weeks, 3X a week, and the results were amazing!! His skin is great, and his coat is soft and shiny. I would recommend this product to anyone whose pet suffers from skin allergies.
from San Diego,CA12/04/2013
Ginger needs a bath weekly due to her skin condition. This stuff is gentle and effective to use and it works great!
Douxo-chlorhexidine PS + Climbazole Dog Shampoo
This is an excellent product .My dog was taking antibiotics and they helped very little.After three bathes using this product his skin is almost totally clear.His hair has grown back thick .His coat is very shiny and healthy after using the shampoo .I will continue to use this for my dog. We both "thank you".And a special thanks to the Doctor online that had written an article about his dog and this great shampoo.
from Decatur, AL04/05/2014
We have a yorkie with skin problems and this shampoo has helped so much. We use this shampoo and brewer's yeast tablets and she went from digging her hair out to having a thick coat of hair and no digging. Make sure and leave on for the recommended time and get a good lather.

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.

Very good shampoo for skin's problems. Delicate parfume. I did notice good results after the first use.
Duoxo does a great job controlling the flaky skin condition that my dog has.
Incredible product for allergic GSDs
by GSD owner08/12/2010
Recommended by my derm vet for my GSDs with allergies. Have had 3 allergic GSDs. This product has made a huge difference in their care. Itching is minimal. Secondary skin infections are much less frequent. Important to use this as a "medicated bath" product. Put 2-3 oz in 30 oz of water, gently mix, pour onto and work into a wet coat. Works into a wonderful sudsy product that is worked into entire coat. Set timer and gently scrub & massage for 10-15 min--especially into problem areas--before rinsing. Not inexpensive but this is the best price I have found.
We have a little yorkie that has allergy problems. We have tried everything. She's five years old and has suffered all five years until her dermatologist suggested this shampoo. It was like flipping a switch. This combined with her allergy shots and a Claritin tablet have finally stopped the constant itching, scratching, open sores, paw biting and anything else associated with allergies. Her life is so much better - worth a try if you are having the same problems. We are so happy for her.
Really helped my allergic dog.
Vet recommended this shampoo and it is working well. We bathe him 2 times per week and his
skin has really improved. I didn't give 5 stars because you have to use a lot to get any lather.
Dog willing to eat, I do not have to force it down her throat, or hide it in a treat, like the Denosyl pill form, which is too pig, and tastes bad.
Helps with itching
by Keeshonden keeper
from Vineland, NJ07/02/2013
We have 2 - 5 1/2 year old Keeshonden (brother and sister). They seem to have an allergy to grass. Using this shampoo helps to promote healing of the rash on their bodies. We follow the directions on the bottle, leaving on for the directed amount of time. I Would recommend this product for pet owners that have tried other products that have not worked.
from West Hills, Los Angeles, CA, USA01/16/2015
My Boxer had a skin abrasion that was infected. My vet put her on antibiotics and recommended this brand of shampoo to use twice weekly for three weeks, and then for maintenance after. It lathers nicely and a little goes a long way. Purchasing here instead of at the vets saved a lot of money. Since the shampoo must stay on 5-10 minutes, I take my dog in the shower with me, lather her up and then take my shower. By the time I'm done, it's time to rinse her off. Perfect!
Douxo Chlorhexidine PS Shampoo
from Gladstone, OR03/10/2013
We have used this shampoo on our Wire Haired Dachshund for infected hair follicles. The shampoo worked very well, but was very expensive when purchased through our vet. We need to use it on our dog once a month and your price makes it very affordable for continued use
Clears up Problem Skin
Been using this product for more than a decade on numerous dogs with different skin problems: allergies, puppy pyro derma, rashes, infections etc. This stuff WORKS! It smells nice and is half the price here than we've been paying from our Vet's Office. Con: The new packaging is horrible and leads to massive waste. We pour this into an old baby shampoo bottle...
Best shampoo ever, but very spoor service
by Mama Mia04/17/2014
We have been using this shampoo for the past three years and it keeps my dog's skin under control. It is a wonderful product. I ordered two bottles from Entirely Pets but they never shipped the order, although our credit card was charged immediately. After several inquiries for over a month, we gave up and order them from Amazon, which arrived in a few days. We ended up directing our bank to reverse the charge. We do not intend to use Entirely Pets in the future.
My 11 year old GSD suffers from skin issues related to chronic yeast infections. This shampoo, when used in conjunction with dietary supplements, markedly improves his skin condition in 2-3 weeks. I highly recommend this product. Great price and fast delivery.
duoxo chlorhexadine shampoo
Awesome product for treating a variety of moderate to severe skin conditions. Have had amazing results on a couple of pups who had been given up on by Vets. In conjunction with the chlorhexadine spray, truly amazing results can be accomplished on severe skin issues.
from Bucks County, PA01/27/2012
This Douxo shampoo is amazing. I have a German Shepherd who suffers from allergies, both indoor, outdoor and food. Adding weekly baths with the Douxo chlorhexidine shampoo to her treatment has worked wonders! It has been months since she needed any antibiotics for skin infections and I have been able to stop the use of Atopica for the winter. This shampoo lathers up nicely and is very easy to rinse out. Be sure to follow the directions and let the lather sit on your dog for ten minutes before you rinse. A big thank you to Entirely Pets for offering such great products at a great price. I highly recommend this product!
This makes my skin feel soooo good when my allergies act up, I love bath time!
from West Palm Beach, FL07/11/2013
My dogs dermatologist wrote a presciption for this shampoo and charged me 68.00 for it. It worked wonders for my dog and has helped to control his scratching. I recommend that you bathe your dog every week and let the shampoo sit on their coat for about 8 minutes.
Double the size & less then half the price of vets
Every time my dog had a relapse case of Staph Infection, I have to bath him with this shampoo. I got a 8oz bottle from his vet and it was $40! Thinking it was a prescription shampoo, I didn't think I could get it anywhere else without a prescription. But one day, I just did a search for places to get it and viola! I stumbled upon Entirely Pets and to my utter surprise, I didn't need a prescription AND their 16.9oz bottle was only $24! I was sooooo over-joyed that I bought 2 bottles. And anyone whose dog has a Staph Infection, knows that it's recommended that a bath be given twice a week for several weeks. So a 8oz bottle doesn't last long. I absolutely love this shampoo. Rather then having to put my dog on antibiotics every time he has a relapse, I find this shampoo to have helped a lot in his itching and scabbing. And I like how gentle this shampoo is and how it doesn't smell like it's medicated. Thank you Entirely Pets for offering such a great product! Mac thanks you!
by Dewey the Golden11/27/2013
My Golden gets fall allergies - hot spots. This shampoo is perfect for him - it helps to heal the hot spots and leaves his fur soft.... Thank you! Saved me hundreds in vet bills.
Works for seasonal skin allergies
from Palm Springs area/California03/19/2014
This shampoo has done a great job for our Labradoodle's seasonal skin allergies. It also makes her fur very soft. Her skin allergies got 100 times worse when we moved to the desert near Palm Springs when she was about 6 years old and this shampoo has saved her. She loves to lay on the grass and that's what we think she's allergic to.
Hard to keep her from doing that! She is just being a dog!
Wow! It worked!
from Little Rock, AR11/18/2013
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.
Good for calming skin.
This product/shampoo is the correct purchase if you want to calm inflamed and irritated skin.
Douxo Shampoo is the perfect solution to skin allergy problems!
Definitely a "MUST BUY"!
Great Shampoo for Dogs
This shampoo has been super helpful for my senior dog with allergies. He frequently got hotspots and had lots of dandruff before starting him on this product. I have been using it once per week and the results are amazing. No more hotspots and his coat is super soft and shiny and smells pretty too! It takes a few weeks to show results but is definitely worth it! Many people have commented on how nice his coat is!
This was bought to cure a staff infection. I was very surprised how nice it smells, very faint, not overwhelming. We use it every 5 days and it is not drying and leaves our dog's coat super soft and shiny! It cured the infection too.
by Daisy May10/22/2012
Started using this on the advice of my Vet. It's kept my dogs skin in good condition with a bath every 7-10 days, leaving it on for about 10 minutes before rinsing. A little seems to go a long way....
Great for dogs with allergies
from Owensboro, KY12/06/2011
Since our vet recommended Douxo shampoo, our dog has had marked improvements in his skin allergies.
Douxo PS shampoo great for skin
We have dealt with skin breakdown from allergies with our golden for over 8 years. The vet had us try numerous shampoos and meds with little help. The skin breakdown would turn into an infection, and we had our dog on prednisone and antibiotics about twice a year. When Douxo Chlorohexidine PS shampoo became available, our vet started our dog on it. We bathe our dog once a week, and he no longer has skin breakdown and infections or itching. It is a wonderful product, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a dog with skin problems due to allergies.
from Auburn, Maine09/12/2014
We purchased this shampoo as a recommendation from our Vet. We've used it on two dogs who had/have severe skin rashes/abrassions. It works great in soothing the skin and gives them a nice clean coat. The only challenge is keeping it on for the required 10 minutes. Though for the most part they don't mind because I give them a good rub down and massage while waiting. Of course having two small dogs who thoroughly enjoy the rub down helps.
My Golden Retriever developed a yeast problem with her skin. She was itching everywhere, shedding, and was absolutely miserable. We used this shampoo along with the N'zymes protocol and it cleared up.
This shampoo is Heaven sent !!!
from Corinth, MS11/07/2012
My sweet, 7y/o Pug has suffered with skin problems since age 2. Needless to say, we've tried many different shampoos, creams, sprays, etc., over the past 5 yrs. I ordered the Douxo shampoo from the Entirely Pets website, received it 2 days later, and after only 2 baths, noted 100% improvement. My only regret, is that I didn't find this product sooner!
Douxo - Chlorhexidine PS + Climbazole Shampoo
from Washington State08/23/2013
I love this mild detergent that is hard against infections. I was sold my first bottle by my Veternarian. I needed to get more and found it here at the best price you can find.
Does the Job 100%
by Dame Jean Marie
Douxo - Chlorhexidine PS + Climbazole Shampoo DOGS - Stops his itching, great for a nice shine on his coat. Gentle enough but gets the hob done.
The best solution for skin disease
Duoxo is the only product that really makes a difference on my Shi Tzu's troubled skin.
Dogs seem to have many allergies in Florida. This shampoo really works. My first Vet prescribed this shampoo for fungal when my dog was 10 weeks old. She is now 7 and this product is still an excellent remedy for skin problems.
Extremely Effective Product for Skin Conditions
by Patrick O
from Galt, CA02/17/2012
My dog Moe, a Schnauzer-Scottie mix, has what was diagnosed by the vet as contact dermatitis and bacterial folliculitus -- which he apparently was contracting by coming into contact with duck and goose feces on the lawns at the park where we walk daily. Several years ago my vet carried and dispensed this Duoxo product, but subsequently began carrying a different brand of product which was not as effective and cost more. I was unable to locate Duoxo locally, but found it available on entirelypets.com for about 1/3 of what I was paying previously at the vet. It has a rich lather and easily rinses clean and diminishes the skin condition within days of use. Chlorhexidine is an agent commonly found in bacterial disinfectant soaps used after human surgical procedures and promotes healing. I would highly recommend this product to anyone whose pets has skin conditions or "hot spot" break-outs.
by MICHELLE WOBBLES11/17/2011
I WAS GETTING THIS PRODIUCT FROM MY
DOGS DERMATOLOGIST AND I WAS GETTING HALF THE SIZE FOR TWICE THE
MONEY.. I DID SOME INTERNET RESEARCHING AND THIS WAS THE BEST PLACE I COULD FIND THIS PRODUCT. NOW I AM GETTING TWICE THE PRODUCT FOR HALF THE PRICE. THIS IS A GREAT SHAMPOO FOR DOGS WIT H SKIN PROBLEMS.
from Orange Countyt, CA11/06/2012
Our vet recommended this shampoo for our terrier that has skin allergies. It calms the scratching.
It Really Works!
by Christina A.10/03/2010
My 14 year old Yorkie was miserable with skin allergies and was waking me up at night from constant scratching and licking. My vet had recommended various products such as epi-sooth shampoo, and resicort and other lotions, besides an antihistamine pill. I felt there had to be a better product and I did not want to have to keep giving my dog pills which were only making him sleep. After reseaching and looking up the ingredient chlorhexidine, I decided to purchase chlorhexidine PS shampoo. After following the directions, my Mijo seemed to regain his perky barky self. It was like a relief came over him. That night he had a sound sleep and didn't even wake up scratching. I was so relieved and I have never wrote a testimonial about any product but felt I had to share this one. I continue to bath him twice a week and it still works and now I am buying a bigger size bottle of the shampoo.
Effective and Gentle
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.
