    The spray works
    June 27, 2014
    My veterinarian recommended this when my dog continued to lick a wound that would have healed if my dog had left it alone. The liquid really helped. However, the bottle is designed for one squirt at a time instead of 2 or more. After the bottle readjusts itself, it's good for another go, but it is annoying. I don't know how long the spray is good for, but we also use it for other itchy problems on our pet, such as bites from yellow flies.

    Soothes and heals - works well and pet does not mind the spray.

    Stops itch, even on bothersome hiney glands, and leaves a very sightly oily-feeling residue to help with dry skin. I gently massage it in, then use a plastic comb to get it down into the skin. It never leaves any residue on furniture, which is great!

    Product is very good

    I use this product on my 13 yr old mini poodle as he has horrible skin problems. The Dermacool HC is the only product that helps his skin heal.
    The product is wonderful,BUT the container is no good the bottle is okay but the sprayer never works this is the second one I have bought from you and when I contacted the manufacturer they said to contact you. You do not make the sprayer the manufacturer does. I usually take the sprayer off and use a top from the shampoo, i put the medicine on a cotton ball and put it on my dog. Effective, yes but still would prefer sprayer. I will continue to purchase product as it works for my dog better than any other I have tried. I will still look for another brand that has same ingredients.

    Nothing the vet tried worked on my pugs skin allergies until we tried s combo of antibiotics and this product. His skin was black and lost a lot of hair but after using this faithfully twice a day his skin was pink and smooth.

    Dermacool is COOL!
    December 12, 2012
    My dog just had his leg amputed (bone cancer) and was struggling with the itchy, uncomfortable stitches and healing process.
    I spray on the Dermacool and he now able to sleep peacefully.

    starting to grow back.

    Great product for hot spots
    June 22, 2012
    Dermacool is the only product I use for skin problems on my dog. My dog has many allergies and has a tendency to bite at him itchy skin, if the allergies get too much. This spray alleviates the aggravation, preventing a full blown "hot spot" from forming. A great product!

    Dermacool Stops hot spots in their tracks!
    June 5, 2012
    if my dog gets a bite or an irritation that he starts biting at all I need to do is spray dermacool and it never goes much further or becomes a hot spot. I wish I knew of this product when my dog was a puppy and we went through lampshades and products that didn't work for ages. also, if your dog has allergys, and chews his toes, spray this on the paws and the chewing stops for quite a while. i just wish i had found this product sooner!
