As advertised and more. This shampoo worked in the past for my Boxers Mange and now for his dry spots. DermabenSS also has a great coconut scent. Love the product.

Merchant Response:Thanks for your DermaBenSS Shampoo testimonial Chris.

This is the best shampoo I have found for my dogs! My vet originally suggested using it several years ago for my older Klee Kai who had a skin problem and it did wonders for him. I have continued using it on my other dogs because it works well and smells so good!

This product is great. My schnauzer had real bad flare ups of schnauzer bumps. Applying this shampoo really made a big difference. It controlled the bumps and she isn't suffering anymore. I would differently recommend Dermabenss shampoo.

Our 7 year old mini Schnauzer Dani has had sporadic bouts with Schnauzer bumps most of her adult life. This spring she has had the most sever outbreak ever. We tried several new shampoos hoping to control these nasty little bumps to no avail. A search on line pointed me to another product, the DermaBenSs, I was skeptic but read other product reviews especially the ones regarding DermaBenSs and how helpful it was controlling Schnauzer bumps. I elected to give it a try because at this point her bumps had become beyond sever. Ordering was easy and shipping was quick. After bathing Dani two time a week, according to instructions, for three weeks there was a 85% reduction in the bumps. She is now being bathed weekly and the outbreak is almost completely gone. This stuff really works! Thank you DermaBenSs for doing exactly what you said you can do.

Our Schnauzer-Poodle (Pepe) developed severe skin problems that caused him to lose large amounts of hair from his shoulders back to his rear legs. What hair remained was thin and wispy. The symptoms that were most pronounced were scales across his entire back and rear legs, along with a musky, pungent odor that became noticeable within a day of giving him a bath. I tried special skin shampoos, buying expensive dog food with high-quality meat, and treatments at the vet, all to no avail. After months of the situation deteriorating, I was desperate. I "stumbled" across DermaBenSs shampoo while looking for solutions to Pepe's skin issues. There were some solid customer reviews, but I was skeptical as any product can garner a good "review." However, I decided to give this product a try as a last ditch attempt to get help for our dog. After using the product for a couple weeks (twice a week), I began to notice improvement. The pungent odor was no longer there and the scaling on his back was less pronounced. I was encouraged to say the least! After a month of using DermaBenSs, the symptoms were completely gone. I cannot tell you how relieved I was to find a product that actually lived up to what it said it would do. This shampoo worked wonders for our dog Pepe. I would recommend it for any dog owner out there who is looking for a solution to skin problems of this kind.

The Shampoo is very nice and leaves the coat shiny and sweet smelling. It does seem to counteract the skin problems and bad odor.

Review for DECHRA DermaBenSS Shampoo (12oz)
June 30, 2014
I was on a mission to try every medicated shampoo on my dog to see which one worked the best. This was one of the shampoos I tried.

If your dog has EXTREMELY oily skin I would recommend this product, but only if the oil is truly excessive. Even then I would only use it on localized areas that are the oiliest. I've never actually used this product on a dog with oily skin, but when I used it on my own dog I noticed that it completely stripped what little oils he had on his skin/coat very effectively. Unfortunately, my dog has dry skin, so this was not a good thing.

My dog has extremely dry skin, he has constant skin infections which cause pimples and hair loss. This product severely dried out his skin after just one use, repeated use caused the formation of thick crusts all over his body. I tried to mediate this with the addition of a doggie conditioner. I tried several different conditioners and even added pure colloidal oatmeal bath soaks to the mix, but nothing helped.

I ended up returning this shampoo as it was clearly not the right choice for my dog.

Really helps the skin

I have field dogs who in the summer swim in ponds that cattle have access too. Yes you can imagine what is probably growing in those ponds!

I bathe the dogs in this shampoo after swimming there and it has cleared up any skin conditions that were getting started. I used to purchase this by the gallon! Dilute down to bathe, leave on for 5 min. Great shampoo

My black lab Minnie had a terrible fungal infection with severe hair loss and skin irritation. After several hundreds of $$ at vet for medicine, expensive shampoo and no results, I started using DermaBenSs and the improvement is amazing. Her hair is growing back and she no longer constantly licks, scratches and chews herself. Thank you from both Minnie and me.

Being burdened with allergies, and a compromised immune system, my dog has benefitted greatly from weekly washings. DermaBenSS has been a huge part in keeping recurring staph infections at bay.

My rescue dog had mange and I tried different shampoos and treatments. She had to be on antibiotics initially, which made her sick and vomit, and Ivermectin for many months. But I started using this, shampooing her every other day and leaving it on as directed for 15 minutes before rinsing (while taking Ivermectin). It was great, made her smell good, relieved the itching, and made her skin less flaky. The vet said that it was the reason she didn't continue to get secondary skin infection and need more antibiotics, so I think DermaBenSS is the best. It made my beloved puppy much more comfortable and more cuddly (mange stinks!).

Good alternative
January 10, 2013
I bought this as an alternative to Pyoben for my dog with chronic seborrhea. Unlike Pyoben, it also contains salicylic acid AND a conditioner. So although it may be more drying, I suppose the conditioner offsets it. It seems to work as well as Pyoben but it has an almond-coconut frangrance that I can do without. Pyoben is not scented, hooray.

NOT Same product
December 13, 2012
Purchased a DERMA BENSS shampoo before, but seems to be discontinued. This is only by the same company, not the same shampoo as before. Most of the reviews on the previous shampoo was raving about how great it is. BUT, seems to make the fur dryer, not as glossy, just that it's antimicrobial. This last purchase, have not used yet. Don't know how good this one is yet. Price going up.

Our dog suffers from seborrhea oleosa. There has been a definite improvement in our dog's coat. Much of the scaliness and greasiness has improved, and she smells much, much, much better!

This shampoo does what it says. My dog's skin is clear and the fragrance is pleasant--mild and not overpowering or too perfumey. The price is great and the deal is just perfect when there is a "no shipping" special. I love this product and your company. Thanks!

Excellent skin shampoo

My cockerspaniel has been plagued with skin staph since she was 2 years old. Dermabens thoroughly cleanses the skin, gets rid of debris, is gentle and non-irritating. Also, she didn't break out like she normally does and hasn't been scratching since her bath.

Excellent product for pets who have sensitive skin. I have been using this for already 5 years and every time it is my last solution. My dog get skin irritation every summer. I first try to determine if those are fleas and at the end I used this product and it help my dog from just one use. Of course I continue using it 2-3 times a week and my dog stops itching, all hot spots go away and the dog can finally sleep calmly at night.
