Great medicated shampoo; smell is so-so
My dog (50lb shepherd mix) developed horrible flaking and itching on her lower back. The sprays I had tried previously were useless and the antibiotics prescribed by the vet were good at clearing up the underlying infection but did not deal with the "quality" of the skin. This shampoo does not smell delicious, but it works. Note that you have to let it sit in the fur for a while. I have noticed that the flaking and itching has greatly been reduced since using this product in conjunction with EPI-SOOTHE Cream Rinse and Conditioner by VIRBAC.
from Houston, TX03/15/2013
Love this product because it actually leaves your dog smelling clean. Most shampoos that I've tried leave my dog smelling like a "wet" dog. This shampoo seems to neutralize the smell, love it. Just wished I could find a bigger bottle of it.
Good Product Buy Elsewhere
from Ft lauderdale florida02/21/2014
The product is great. Plain and simple. However entirely pets is not a good company to do online business with. I tried to change my order within 5 minutes of placing it and was told someone would get back to me within 24 hours. That was too late to change my order. Berry disappointing since the item did not come super fast
Good Product for Challenging Problem
from Camas, WA05/09/2013
I was hospitalized and ended up boarding Woofie at a Vet Shop. They kept him in a filthy cage and he got some challenging fungus/bacterial infections that MAL-A-KET appears to be very effective against. A tablespoon of it in a pint of warm water is good for foot-soaking.
Mal-A-Ket Shampoo for Allergies
by Daisy's Mom
from Tulsa, OK02/10/2013
This product was recommended by a groomer for allergies. It's an anti-fungal shampoo and stops the itching and scratching of allergies. My West Highland Terrier is known for skin allergies, so this product is a must-have. It also kills the stinky feet smell which is caused by bacteria between the toes. Great product for the money.
from Mahomet, IL06/01/2012
My 7-year old pit bull suffers from skin allergies, and is on a regime of weekly allergy injections. When he has a breakout, he gets staph infections on his skin. This shampoo has helped so much. I started out using it every other day and after only a few weeks have been able to reduce the frequency to once every 4 - 5 days. The shampoo has a pleasant fragrance, and does not burn his skin and my hands like so many of the other medicated shampoos that I have used. It also lathers up very well, and therefore is very economical. I would highly recommend this shampoo for anyone who has a dog with skin problems.
Only treatment that helped
from Vancouver bc09/07/2014
Our white Bull Terrier has terrible skin on his belly.
He spent his life rubbing and scratching. We spent
thousands atvets/allergists/dermatologists,whollistic treatments, etc., Treatment with Mal-A-Ket, well rinsed out, made his life so much better.
Get rid of the red color!!
from New York State02/19/2011
We bought this product to treat ringworm however, most of the cats we are bathing are WHITE. This shampoo is a bright red. My white cats are now orange stained and the color does NOT rinse out. We even rinsed with bleach water in attempt to get rid of the red staining. It does smell OK, it lathers well, but the red color is a non-plus in my opinion, even if it works.
low price, great effect

from Swansea, IL10/09/2013
When I adopted him I noticed his hair would shed a lot and he scratched a lot. The vet recommended ma-la-ket shampoo.
Awesome product!! Will definitely be buying more of this. Considering the gallon size(!)
No more rash!
from Los Angeles, CA02/23/2013
I purchased this for my Corgi who is allergic to many shampoos including tearless baby shampoo. She developed a rash in her female area and was given the Mal-A-Ket wipes to use once a day. I bathed her wth the Mal-A-Ket shampoo and her skin and fur became soft and white again. No longer is her skin red and irritated!
Best Product on the market
I purchased this product after reading the review with the hope that it would have the save effect on my cat as it did the reviewer's pet. Well, I'm so pleased to report that this shampoo is the greatest thing since the invention of the sandwich!! It really does the job that it says it will do. My cat looks great and feels great. The shampoo got all of the grease, grime and dirt out of her coat and left it shiny and soft. I highly recommend this product to you and yours. I am making this product part of my cats regime. Thanks so much for this wonderful product.
from Lakeland Fl.07/31/2012
Great Product for my dogs skin. We been using this product for many years.
The product prevents skin flare-ups and infections in my pet.
If your animal has a bacterial skin problem this stuff works and smells great.
from Chicago, IL10/31/2012
Love this shampoo, have been ordering it for awhile now. It is thin, which I was surprised about, but allows for easier all-over spreading of the product into the coat and skin. Rinses quickly with a nice conditioned feel, great scent. I leave this product on my pug for 10 minutes in the tub before rinsing, for full therapeutic benefits to skin. Highly recommend.
Best shampoo ever!
from Evans, GA11/06/2013
I have been shampooing my dog, Amber, with Malaket shampoo for approx. 8 years. She is a sharpei and prone to bad skin rashes. It really works and I urge everyone to try it for their dogs. My Amber now has an excellent coat and gets compliments all the time when we go walking.

from Winchester, TN02/10/2013
This is a great shampoo for my yorkie. He has allergies and this has helped a lot and you can't beat the price!
Best Product ever!
Our chocolate cocker spaniel has suffered relentlessly for 4 or 5 years with skin issues from seasonal allergies. She used to break out in big dry patches of scaly skin and would scratch non stop. Nothing helped, until we found this shampoo. One shampoo and all the scaly patches were gone and haven't returned in 2 months now. This shampoo is worth the price! We will never buy another shampoo!
from Sunland, California10/18/2011
I use to use Malaseb but it has been discontinued. This shampoo works great for my 2 little dogs. They have allergies and very sensitive skin. It's got a red tint to it so you have to rinse very well. I have a little white rat terrier and it leaves no tint on him. I will continue to buy this shampoo.
Great for my dog's skin issues!
from NW IN03/15/2012
After DVM discontinued it's line of products, I turned to this shampoo. It's very fresh smelling, and long lasting in regards to smell and fresh coat. I shampoo my pug every 2 weeks. I have seen negative reviews about the shampoo's color which is a bright orange; I find it not to be a problem. My pug is fawn/light in color and contrary to other comments, this shampoo does not stain my dog's hair. The only negative comment I have about it is that it does not lather as well as the DVM brand used to, but a decent shampoo nonetheless.
best purchase ever !!!!
by foxy green03/23/2011
This shampoo is the best !!! I tried other shampoos and they only made my dogs skin worse. The shampoo lathers well and leaves her skin soft. Its great for rashes and bacterial infections. Although the shampoo is red, it does not stain her white coat. What I love the most is that with a little shampoo it does the job. Make sure to use plenty of water to rinse it off, if not your pet will be red.
Does the job
I bought this to use on a 16.5 year old terrier that suddenly started itching. Bathed him, 2 days later he stopped itching, followed it up with another bath the next week, haven't had a problem since.
It's now been several weeks since using it.
from Lauderdale by the Sea, FL10/22/2012
I have 2 shar-pei and one has great skin and the other, well let's just say he doesn't. I wash him regularly with this shampoo. It keeps his skin in check and smells really good when it dries on him too.
from Hilton, NY07/19/2013
Our vet recommended this along with DermaLyte to get the smell out of our Lab's thick undercoat from swimming in the lake. The combo of the two worked great. No more stinky seaweed smell. Her coat was beautiful as well. We had been using citrus based shampoos on her prior to this, but this combo worked much better.
from Newark, Ohio01/26/2013
This is the only shampoo we can use on our dog. We only wish there were more coupons or sales on this product.
After battling yeast and fungal bacteria on my elderly Westie, I'm finally seeing results! The vet recommended shampooing every day but after a week of that, I cut back to every other day. Used the medicated Malaket Wipes in between baths.
These products, plus antibiotics and Ketokonazole were a huge help in getting the problem under control.
Best he felt in years - cured his pink skin
by Winston's friend07/15/2014
Cured my dogs Winston's pink skin which had been a problem for years. Especially in summer. Vet treated as an allergy and it never got much better till I found this shampoo. He is now no longer scratching and no pink skin,or,soresThanks.
Skin allergy helper!
from Essex, Mass.04/24/2012
Helps with my dogs skin allergy. Has a nice scent.
from Lake Seminole, GA11/17/2011
Shipping was FAST!! & PRICE beat the vet's by a long shot!! This product has cleared up my dear "Houdini's" fungus..but must bathe your pet at least twice a week with it. WIPES are great for in-between.
Thank You ENTIRELY PETS for having this shampoo.
great -- gives our dog relief
Our dog, Benny, has a persistant yeast infection. The Mal-a-Ket shampoo gives him relief from the itching and it also keeps his hair soft and great smelling. We would recommend it to everyone !!!
A Great Deal
I have been purchasing this shampoo from my veterinarian for my dog who has extensive allergies. The shampoo has helped and makes her smell like a pretty girl. I recently decided to check pricing on the internet and found a substantial savings by ordering it through EntirelyPets. I only wish I would have explored the idea sooner. I will continue to buy from this company when needed. The service was great. I received the product within days during the busy Christmas season.
from Baltimore, MD11/16/2013
I have been using Mal-A-Ket shampoo for several years now for one of my Goldens who has severe allergy and yeast issues. It has helped him tremendously and his coat is now thick and beautiful again. I recommend this product for anyone whose dogs are having yeast issues on their skin.
great product..recommended by our vet...approved
by results from our animals skin problems....
No more itching
from Arlington, TX05/06/2013
Our pug, Ronaldo was itching so much we actually thought he had a mental disorder. His coat looked and felt good so we were at a loss. It turns out he had yeast on his belly. Our vet had us use this and it worked fast. We follow the directions. It was expensive thru the vet so I found it here and keep it on hand and when he gets to itching we use it and the itching stops. I do set a timer for ten minutes before rinsing it off.
from Evans, GA05/03/2012
I have used this product for quite awhile now and would not use any other for my Shar-pei.
She is 10 years old, gets her bath every 2 weeks. Her coat is soft and thick.
Super antifungal dog shampoo
We use this on a friend's dog that was experiencing recurring yeast issues on the skin (itchy, smelly, funky). By bathing with this shampoo and following it with a diluted cider vinegar rinse (to help restore a normal pH level to the skin), the yeast overgrowth has been controlled. Important to let the lathered shampoo sit on the skin and coat for 5-10min before rinsing in order to allow it to do its job. Highly recommended.
Tbe best yet
from Hometown IL08/03/2014
I have a yorkie with a lot of allergies and this shampoo really helps. I have let my friends use it on their dogs and everyone is very well pleased.
Saves me a trip to the vet
by GeorgeandLucy's Mom
from Decatur, IL01/26/2014
We keep this shampoo on hand all year. Both my Beagles have outdoor allergys so when the itching starts we are ready for it. Mal-a-ket really calms their skin and softens their coat. We love it.
Cheaper than the vets office!
from Elizabethtown, Pa.07/31/2014
My Shi-Tzu has allergies and problems with yeast infections. Vet recommended this shampoo and it seems to work better than any other product on the market. I would highly recommend this product on pets with allergy issues!
by HAPPY DOG12/01/2009
THIS A GREAT SHAMPOO SMELLS GREST WORKS WELL ON SENSAITVE DOG TRY A LOT OF OTHER SHAMPOO S THAT DIDNT WORK LEFT MOLLY RED AND DISCOMFORT, GREAT PRODUCT
Finally a shampoo that works!!
This shampoo has done wonders for my elderly dogs skin and coat. My dogs itchy and scaly skin is so much improved and no more bad smell even days after bathing.
from Kennewick, WA12/19/2012
I like this shampoo. It lathers up very well, neutral smell and it works! After shipping cost it is still about half the price of the Veterinarian supplied shampoo.
Excellent Shampoo for Yeast Allergies
Have been using this shampoo for years for my dog with yeast allergies - it works great! One bit of advice, these medicated shampoos dont clean perfectly so I do a 1st wash w/ a hypoallergenic shampoo and then do the 2nd wash with Malaket letting it soak in a bit before washing off, works great!
This was supposed to stop my dog from itching.
It doesn't work.
Mal-A-Ket medicated shampoo
from Detroit, Mi.10/30/2011
I've been buying this shampoo for years but this company offered it at the lowest price I've ever seen. They had speedy delivery and the product is just exactly what I've been buying at our vet. I'll be making my purchases here from now on.
This shampoo is great! Healed up my bulldogs coat like nothing else! All the hot spots have healed. Has stopped his constant scratching!
Simply the best, and more isn't to say.

The Best Product for Older Dogs
Best product on the market. Great for older dogs and dogs with skin problems. Our groomer has been telling me about this product for years. She uses it on her own dogs as well as the dogs she grooms with skin problems. After his bath, my dog will sleep very content. No scrathing, chewing,or moving.
from New Hampshire07/28/2014
This stuff worked wonders in healing my dogs skin sores. She has allergies and gets staph infections from scratching. I used this every other day as directed. Be sure to leave on for at least 10 minutes. She is doing great and I use it every 2 days. No more sores or itching! Highly recommend this product.
My 6 yr old Westie suffers from skin allergies and with the coming of spring and summer she becomes very itchy. The veterinary dermatologist recommended that I bathe her frequently with Mal-A-Tek. It soothes her skin instantly and gives her relief for several weeks. Her coat is shiny and healthy looking. But best of all, she's comfortable and happy!
Our vet prescribed this for our dog about 8 months ago when he was having some skin issues. Since we started using it he doesn't chew at his paws or legs and he has stopped rubbing his back on my furniture and walls. I would recommend this product to anyone who has pets with extreamly dry skin or allergies.
I found this by chance online and it has turned out to be just what I was looking for. It has helped my Shih Tzu tremendously a d she no longer has flaky skin.
from Tampa FL05/30/2012
This was recommended by our vet for our allergy doggy. After using this shampoo on a regular basis along with another shampoo, he is feeling so much better. Entirely pets is cheaper than vet even when paying shipping.
Effective but pricey
I use the Mal-A-Ket shampoo on my 10-year old Westie, Dolly. Dolly has severe allergies and battling the effects of them on her skin is a never-ending challenge. The shampoo works really well but we have to use a lot to get good coverage because Dolly's coat is thick. We recently took in a 9-year old Cairn Terrier, who also tends to be very itchy. Again, because of her coat, a lot of shampoo is needed to really reach the skin. Good product but not really affordable for ongoing use.
Wonderful find to suit my pets' needs!
from Vancouver, WA10/24/2013
Love the Mal-a-Ket shampoo! It keeps my Shar-Pei's coat healthy, he smells great and is not harsh on his skin. The wipes are great for touching up his paws and the folds of his skin in between baths. My dog really looks forward to his bath time! A 5 paw rating!
Great for SharPei Skin
by SharPei Mom
from San Diego, CA07/03/2014
My SharPei has had skin problems since I got her. She was nearly bald, and stunk from yeast and staph. After oral medications, she still has occasional skin issues. This product stops her from itching, gets rid of that odor, and removes the greasy feeling from her coat. She now has a thick beautiful coat. I am thankful to have found something to help my girl.
Skin problem solved
This product has ELIMINATED yeast/candida problems in my dog's feet. It keeps his entire coat and skin healthy.
I have ordered this product for my beagle that has paws problem. I used this product and I could tell that it help right away.
We started getting this for our Collie from our veterinarian after she developed a skin problem. I take the bottle with me to her groomer and it is all we use on her now as she is prone to skin problems. The groomer said her skin looks excellent since we started using only this shampoo. I like it so well I use it on all our dogs!
Mal A Ket Dog Shampoo
Works great on my cairn terrier's skin issues. Recommended by my vet.
good for skin control issues.
Had several dogs use this, even when I don't leave it on for long it helps. One dog does not get greasy skin she is a cairn, the other has controlled skin issues that were very bad. He is a chi-pin or as dh says a pin-huahua.
by Dog Lover10/23/2012
Mal-A-Ket has been life changing for my Jack Russell. For years I'd been taking her to the Vet. and Vet. Dermatologist due to all her allergic break outs. It was truely sad to see her broke out in hives and in such pain. We didn't know if it was food or environmental, so we tried different diets, expensive shampoos for dogs with allergies and she still continued to break out. Well, to make a long story short we found a kitten that ended up having ring worms and my Jack Russell came down with ring worms, so I took her to the Vet. and he gave me this shampoo to bathe her. I noticed that the entire time she was using Mal-A-Ket she never broke out once. WHO KNEW! that the very shampoos that the Vets. were giving us to treat my dog's allergies were breaking her out. Now I only bathe her with Mal-A-Ket and she's never broke out since.
Thankful to have found this!!!!

I have a 1 yr old english bulldog with bad skin issues-dandruff, fungal infected paws, hair loss, and rash. His dandruff cleared up after 2 shampoos!!!!! Rash is better and hardly any hair loss now. This is a miracle shampoo!!!!! Totally recommend it!!!!!
Mal-A-Ket for your Pet !
by Bill M.
Great shampoo for a dog that has allergy caused fungal skin infection; also leaves the coat shiny and smelling very good.
Before and After Mal-A-Pet photo.
Great for Itchy Dogs
This is great shampoo if you have an itchy pet, very clean smelling and wonderful for their coat!
Works great, but
The product works as it should and my dog smelled great after his shampoo - however, he squealed as soon as I put it on him and while I bathed him. My vet recommended that I use this shampoo because he is having skin allergy problems, and even though he doesn't have any open sores it must of really bothered him, must be super sensitive to something in the shampoo. I had to discontinue using it:(
The Mal-A-Ket shampoo has been excellent for Foxy's skin problems. The Vet gave me a sample of it when I was there last, but didn't have any in stock when I called to get some, so that's when I ordered from Entirely Pets. She smells really great just after her bath and her itching has just about quit completely. Thanks for your prompt shipping.......
Mal-A-Ket for bathing dogs
Mal-A-Ket is what my vet recommends for my Dachshunds who have sensitive skin and it seems to work for us.
Silky coat with long lasting smell
Love this shampoo! Lathers really well, and has a pleasant, long lasting scent. Very good for problem skin.
Excellent for Bulldogs!
from El Paso, TX04/29/2013
I bought this shampoo after reading all the positive reviews online. My english bulldog suffered from yeast and this shampoo worked great! No more corn chip smell or paw licking and the fragrance smells awesome!
My master is so smart
from Gainesville, ga07/27/2012
If a dog, and I am a dog, a welsh terrier, thank you very much, has to have a bath, I prefer Mal-a-Ket. It is a great medicated shampoo, and with my allergies, it helps my skin so much. But while I love my vet, they were charging $10 more per bottle. So I get a great bath, and my master saves money using Entirely Pets. Maybe he'll spend the savings on a new toy!
Best Shampoo for Dogs with Skin Allergies
I have to bathe our English bulldog weekly because he has severe skin allergy issues. This shampoo has been the best for keeping him as itch-free as possible in between baths.
Mal a ket
from prairie village kansas04/29/2012
Best shampoo for keeping staph under control. I use it weekly on my English Bulldog - prone to staph. works great! use the wipes for inbetween baths.
Shampoo made for for dog!
Finally I found a shampoo that really works for my dog who has a very sensitive skin.I let my friend use it because her dog itches and after just 2 shampoos she said that it is working.
A comfort for my dog
I have a West Highland White Terrior, Westies, she has some skin issues. When I bath her with this shampoo for the itiching skin, she says thank you with her eyes...I can see her relaxing as it soothes her skin. I would recommend this to any dog owner with skin issues and I plan to continue using this product when needed.
I've used this on both my cat and my dog on the recommendation of my vet. It has worked well to get rid of their rashes. Unfortunately you do have to use it repeatedly, for a couple of weeks, to do so, but I don't know of a product that does this with just one shampooing.
by Great product10/26/2011
I use this on my dogs that develop skin irritations due to allergies. While it doesn't solve the problem it does help keep the skin issues under control if I use it once a week and let it soak on my dog for at least 10 minutes before rinsing off.
Excellent Shampoo for sensitive skin
from Los Angeles, CA02/27/2013
Best to treat fungal infections or bacteria infections. Highly recommend if your pet has allergies to food/allergens. Leaves coat soft and clean. Excellent results when using warm water and little shampoo works a long way.
worked pretty well
i used this product for a long time on my bully and was pretty happy with it but for us i found the duoxo ps shampoo worked better. worked well and left her coat soft n shiny just didnt work as well on her yeast and bacteria issues as the other.
by Benji *
from Belleville, IL05/16/2014
This product was actually recommended to me by my vet. It was a little expensive buying directly from the vet but was happy to find it at a more reasonable price. Malaket shampoo is gentle on my dogs hair because he has very sensitive skin, and make my dog smell great even after 3 or more days.
Use this on my dogs and horses. Works well.
