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.
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
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.

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!!!
This makes my skin feel soooo good when my allergies act up, I love bath time!
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.
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.
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!
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.
Speedy delivery. Will purchase again. No allergic reaction to our pet.
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.
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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.

Excellent product! I have a toy poodle who is prone to very sensitive skin, this shampoo is great for him!
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.
from Orange Countyt, CA11/06/2012
Our vet recommended this shampoo for our terrier that has skin allergies. It calms the scratching.
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!
from Salisbury, NC08/05/2012
My dog has very itchie skin. This product sooths and kills fles on contact. Love thius shampoo
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...
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!
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 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.
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.

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.
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....
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.
helps reduce redness on sore areas of my havanese
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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
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!
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.
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!
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!
Nice and gentle shampoo
This shampoo helps the skin and odor of my English Bulldog.
Gentle to skin
by Happy Gal
from Aiea, HI12/17/2012
I tried various medicated shampoos to treat my dog's infected folliculitis and this shampoo helped clear up her skin condition without a mediciny smell.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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
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
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!
Works well and has no real medicinal odor.
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!
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

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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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!
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!!
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.
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.

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.
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.

Works great. Have a shar-pei and it is great stuff
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
shampoo works great
from Mystic Ct10/22/2012
Less itching after bath downside is the cost
