    Great for treating yeast infections
    January 31, 2019
    I've been using this shampoo for over a year now to treat recurrent yeasts infections on my dogs. It works well to bring relief of symptoms and improve the look of their coat.

    My dog (Nikki - cocker spaniel) has been using BPO 3 shampoo for 6 years. She is now 14 years and is in good health. Cockers are known for problem skin and she was no exception. Everyone said to use oatmeal shampoo but it didn't help. So after several years of vet visits, lots of antibiotics, and many different kinds of shampoos - I tried BPO 3. It's a miracle - these last 6 years have been wonderful.

    This product is great, can not get this in Canada. But, it took two weeks to arrive. Shipping should be through a courier not the postal service

    This product has helped keep the itchy clumps down to a minimum. Makes her coat feel clean and has eliminated the bad odor.

    Works really well
    February 18, 2017
    We have a shih tzu and his skin has always been sensitive and requires a lot of maintenance. We found low protein food helps along with hypo-allergenic treats, (which he loves). This shampoo works wonderfully, his skin will be inflamed somewhat but after his bath he's back to normal, comfortable and happy.

    gentle effective shampoo
    July 11, 2016
    When the supplier was out of our regular BP shampoo, Pyoben, I had to search for a substitute. This one is great - does what it says: degreases and keeps the hair follicles open - with mild sudsing & pleasant gentle fragrance. I can use it weekly, on our westie's back and sides, where she has oily seborrhea. Large sized bottle & great price, even when shipping cost to Canada is added on !

    I have been using this product for about 6yr.
    It used to be stronger. When they changed the
    label about 2 yr. ago the solution was different,
    it seems watered down now.

    We have a wire haired fox terrier, the terriers have skin that tends to get dry spots and itch. when using this product he does not have the problem if allowed to soak 10 minutes before rinsing and a regular biweekly wash. It was recommended and sold by our vet but very expensive from the vet. Much more reasonably priced through entirely pets. Have tried a less expensive product bought thru Amazon with not as good results.

    This shampoo works great. It really helps my dogs' oily skin. The only thing you have to be careful about is to be sure to rinse thoroughly or your towel will become bleached from the shampoo. This is the only shampoo I use on my 3 dogs.

    Works better than Prednisone tabs.
    July 12, 2015
    My Boxer has nasty foot allergies. The Vet put him on Prednisone tabs, but he soon started to have side effects. He was sluggish and gaining weight, and I had my reservations about steroidal drugs.

    A friend suggested bathing my dogs feet in BPO-3 twice a day after his walks. Works as well or better than Prednisone, without the worry of side effects.

    Works great at eliminating bumps (basically Acne that is unique to Schnauzers) from our Dog.
    Delivery was very quick (2 days I think).

    Worked for Schnauser bumps
    March 1, 2015
    did 3 washings on our 8 year old mini-schnauser. She had Schnauser Bumps, aparently something common to the breed. After 3 treatments they were gone. I leave it on for around 10-15 minutes while I wash the other dog. Warning: Even if you think you washed all the BPO-3 out, don't let them on the carpets, since it WILL BLEACH light paw prints wherever they step.

    Cleared up staph infection
    August 3, 2014
    On vet's prescription, I used this shampoo every 4 days for 2 weeks in an area with (skin) staph infection. Product was reasonably priced and staph infection cleared promptly.

    Have used this shampoo in the past when our dog had some seborrheic dermatitis issues. It has cleared up her skin every time. The last time with only one use. The first time I bought it from our vet when we lived in Texas. This time I searched online to try to find some place that carried it. Was very happy to find Entirely Pets.

    Finally, something that works!
    May 9, 2014
    My 9 year-old service dog and I moved back to California from Colorado in 2012, and almost immediately he was bitten by fleas, which don't exist in Colorado. He developed a bad skin infection, followed by persistent oily flaking around pink sores that exist today, over 14 months later.

    Per his vet's instructions, I took him to the groomer twice monthly for a medicated bath. However, until the groomer started using Vet Solutions BPO shampoo, his coat and skin remained an uncomfortable, ugly mess.

    Now, my dog's coat is shiny, the red sores have diminished, and the flaking only recurs when I fail to take my dog in within a few weeks of his scheduled grooming appointments. Plus, he is comfortable, and not biting or scratching his skin; that can all be attributed to the Vet Solutions BPO shampoo.

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT along with other Vet Solution products I have used in the past.

    Since I've been bathing our 3 year old doxie with this shampoo, every week, she has All of her fur and Very few bumps. Prior to using this, she had some bald spots, a multitude of bumps and sores. Our doxie is allergic to grass, trees, pollen, beef, eggs, barley, and many other environs. This shampoo, and the weekly baths, has restored her lovely fur and minimized the bumps in her skin. This is a winner!!!!!

    Skin Bumps Still There

    Read somewhere that the peroxide in the shampoo was suppose to help rid of skin bumps, but still there. Makes fur more dry.

    I just started to use this a few weeks ago to see if it helps with my dogs schnauzer bumps and it seems to help. Will have to see if his condition improves with continued use. I only use Vet Solutions BPO 3 Shampoo 3% Benzoyl Peroxide along his back where the schnauzer bumps are and use Vet Solutions Universal Medicated Shampoo for the rest of his coat.

    BPO-3 Shampoo
    May 31, 2013
    It smells good but lathers very minimal. it did help my dogs skin but I use it with another shampoo that I purchased through entirely pets, I first use the BPO-3 shampoo and shampoo him first that one first the I use the Dermabenss Shampoo and lather him up really good and let it sit, and the combination of both have made his skin much better. It is a good shampoo just does not lather a lot.

    I needed to find a shampoo for one of my dogs with skin issues. I researched and found that benzoyl peroxide shampoo would help. I hopped on Entirely Pets website, found the shampoo and ordered it. My dog's bald patches have started to fill in again and he smells SOOOOOOO much better!

    This shampoo is primarily used to treat seborrheic disorders, which differ in nature from sarcoptic mange. It may be used as part of a more comprehensive treatment regimen, but you should consult a veterinarian to determine if it is right for your dog.
