I have a wonderful cocker spaniel/king charles cavalier mix and we love him but he stinks! We live on a lake and he loves to swim and play in the water but that equates to yeast issues with him and gives him this sour smell. So this shampoo is a gift as with regular use, keeps all of that under control. I don't need it in the winter months but it gets heavy use in the summer. It is a great product!

Dry Flaky Skin No More
March 10, 2014
Awesome shampoo for sensitive skin prone to itchy or flaky skin. My GSD had a small patch of dry skin that significantly improved in two weeks and was gone in three weeks with this shampoo. Already familiar with Virbac's Hexadene shampoo that was used to bath a recent litter, I thought I'd give this product a try. I was extremely pleased with the results and the dry skin has not returned.

This product has been a relief to our Pomeranian. Almost from birth she has had scaley flakey skin. This product used regularly has resolved the issue. We've been using it for three years and are very satisfied.
Love This
January 5, 2014
This shampoo is awesome. My dog has a ton of allergies and skin issues. Washing him once a week with is product has been a huge help. His coat looks vibrant and is soft. He is not itching his skin and ripping it open anymore. Definitely seems to work better when used regularly and if its left on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.

My pet is an outside animal and is allergic to the grass. She is constantly scratching to the point where she makes herself bleed and has bald spots. This shampoo is a Magic! Instant Relief for Tiny. She stops scratching and her coat shines!

Awesome shampoo
September 25, 2013
We absolutely love this product. We have a wooly malamute with allergies and this stops her itching and takes the smell of her oily skin away. There is literally no smell to this shampoo like many of the others that smell like tar and it rinses out immediately. For best results make sure to let sit on for a few minutes. You will love it!

We have a cocker spaniel that gets a yeast growth every summer from being in the lake so much. He gets this real "sour" smell. This shampoo, when used on a regular basis, works wonders in keeping that problem down. It is a great product!

Great for allergies
January 1, 2013
I have been using Keratolux for about six months on my westie. It helps with his allergies so much. I bathe him with it once a week and do a second wash with Epi Soothe. Then I rinse him with Humilac. I am so happy with Entirely Pets prices on these products compared to buying them at the vets. It is expensive to take proper care of a dog with allergies, so I really appreciate finding great products like Keratolux.

Great value

This shampoo cost half of what my vet charges, for twice as much product! Jetta needs weekly baths, so this large size will last for quite a while.

I was looking for a shampoo that did not allow my dog to get hot spots after being groomed and this stuff works!!! She has VERY sensitive skin and can not even use oatmeal. She requires a tar-based shampoo for her seborrhea and so far this stuff is the best!

I've used this shampoo for years. I've had a few dogs through the years with skin issues, and this is the best shampoo I've ever used. It seems to kill the fleas on them too. Good stuff!!!

A therapeutic shampoo that really works
June 12, 2012
I use this on Clark our black and white domestic short hair cat. He is an inside and outside cat so is exposed to seasonal inhaled allergies that causes itching and scratching to the point of patches of hair loss, last year he was almost bald at the tail base area. Keratolux shampoo relieves itching and helps settle his skin down so that it can heal. It took months but now his hair has grown back. I use this shampoo as needed to control itching and it works!

I use keratolux along with Epi Soothe on my westie with allergies. I bathe him twice a week alternating between the two and I always use Humilac as a rinse. It seems to be a winning combination.

best conditioning shampoo for itchy coats
May 22, 2012
I love Keratolux! I have two Bassett Hounds, one of which has a very seborrheic, itchy coat. Now he basically jumps into the tub to have is Keratolux bath! He used to have problems with scratching continually and shedding horribly, to the point that his white coat was noticeably thin. He no longer sheds excessively and hardly ever scratches. I am now searching so that I can by a gallon of the stuff. Anybody know where I can get one?

Best dog shampoo I have used so far and I have English Bulldogs. They are known for their skin problems and this product has saved me alot of money not having to take them to the vet as much.

great stuff for Mini-Schnauzers
February 15, 2012
Does your mini-schnauzer have schnauzer skin? This shampoo gives our little guy great relief from dry, itchy skin and helps prevent new "schnauzer bumps." It's cheaper here than anywhere else I've checked, too.

Review for Keratolux (16 oz)
October 30, 2011
My chihuahua/fox terrier had hot spots for a few months. I tried various shampoos prescribed by the veterinarian and am very happy Virbac's Keratolux was one of three shampoos that he recommended because now my dog is hot spot free.

Great Dog shampoo
October 25, 2011
I purchased this from EntirelyPets because it was double the price at the Veterinarian's office. It has helped my dog with his itchy skin and I plan on continuing its use. The product was delivered to me only 2 days after ordering and that was very impressive.

Amazing shampoo
October 17, 2011
I use this on my very wooly malamute who has allergies. She gets a funny smell to her after about 2 weeks of not having a bath or from playing outside in damp weather. This shampoo gets rid of the odor and is so unbelievably easy to rinse out even with all of her wooly fur.There is no residue. I also love that the shampoo dosent smell like tar and when she dries there is no smell at all to her. That is a huge plus!!! It really is a wonderful product, by fat the best of any medicated shampoo i have tried. I have 2 other malamutes who do not have allergies and I use it on them just because its easy to rinse out and does not smell after they dry. I highly recommend this product.
