My golden retriever Gus, like many of his breed, suffers from itchy skin. This shampoo is the best thing I have ever found for his skin and coat, and I have had goldens for 30 years. He smells wonderful after a bath, not perfumey but clean, and his coat is soft, shiny and fluffy. Best shampoo ever!
Best shampoo for dogs with skin problems by Callie Sloane from New York, Tri-State area03/19/2012
i have been using Epi-Soothe for over 17 years for all my dogs. I started using it when my dearly departed Lhasa Apso showed signs of skin irritation and allergies. I now have a terrier mutt with severe skin allergies who cannot tolerate any shampoo but Epi-Soothe with the Oatmeal Cream Rinse. any other so called hypo allergenic shampoo treatments keep him itching until his next bath. this is the best shampoo you can buy. it work best when combined with the oatmeal cream rinse.
Epi-Soothe Shampoo by Tucker's Mom from New York06/14/2011
This is just the best. I have used it on both my dogs (a Golden Retriever and a Bernie-Doodle) and neither has ever had any itchy skin! They are always soft and everyone comments on how great they smell and look. Tried others...they do not match up! great price at this website too!
