    Great shampoo!!!

    I originally purchased this shampoo from my vet because my dog had a bad case of yeast infection on her skin. I paid over $27.00 for it and desided to look online to find it cheaper because I have to bath her with it once a week to keep her skin clear. I found it at this web site and and was able to get it for half of what I paid at the vet shipping and all. It's an excellent shampoo, smells great and lathers well and keeps her skin looking great. Thanks Entirelypets for a great product at a much better price. I will definitely be buying from you again.

    helped itchy feet
    February 21, 2017
    I applied this shampoo full strength to my lab's paws, which are always itchy, left it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinsed and dried thoroughly. I did it approximately 2 times a day for 2 weeks. It has now been a week with no soreness, itching or redness. I would definitely check with your veterinarian before you experiment.

    Nothing better!
    February 14, 2017
    I have a dog with an extreme yeast condition and I have tried everything until the vet sold me a bottle of Mal-A-Ket and it was a miracle. Her hair is grown back and the terrible stench is gone.

    I highly recommend this shampoo!

    Mal-A-Ket helps
    January 26, 2017
    This product was recommended by our veterinarian for our 9-year-old basset hound, who had numerous sores caused by chewing. The Mal-A-Ket has helped a lot; he now has no skin sores, but still chews the pads on his feet.

    My scottie got this awful skin infection and the Vet recommended this shampoo. The Vet prices are a little high and bought a couple bottles for my guy. It does keep his skin clean of infection and his coat is nice and shinny. I would recommend this shampoo to anybody who has Scottish Terriers.

    Antifungal/Antibacterial shampoo

    I have tried everything for itching, scratching for my 10 year old Shar-pei. Finally the doctor put him on this shampoo. And it is amazing, every two weeks, I shampoo him and leave it on him for 10-20 minutes. You have to leave it on them. I shampoo my dog outside, have a glass of wine. Or talk to a friend on the phone. And then rinse off.

    No more itching, biting, and my dog Wrinkles is so much more comfortable.

    Mal-A-Ket Shampoo
    June 23, 2016
    This works really well for my mini-dachshund. His skin is very wrinkled around his chubby legs which becomes very dry and irritating for him. This shampoo helps to relieve this dryness, which keeps him from chewing his underarms and legs until they bleed. I highly recommend this shampoo, and know that the price is very competitive.

    My dog has itchy skin, and the vet recommended that I use this shampoo to settle it down. It has worked very well and given her relief from the itching and scratching. I am waiting to see if I can get through the summer without having to put her on medication to give her skin some relief. I would rather give her a bath than have to put her on medicine.

    Mal-A-Ket Shampoo
    March 30, 2016
    This product was a life saver. My miniature Schnauzer has some skin and allergy issues (typical to his breed) and after going through several shampoos, including using oatmeal baths, this product seems to do the trick!
    Follow a good regimen - use it, initially, often, and then taper off. Right now he seems to need it about 2x week but it's been great. His skin is smooth and no "bumps" and his coat is soft.

    I'll keep using it as long as it works!

    Dog odor
    November 19, 2015
    We have used this product for years! Our dog suffers from a yeast condition on his skin, as a result he has terrible body odor and gets scabby patches and itching. This product takes care of all of that. He's a much happier pooch and he smells better too!

    Extremely irritating to my Yorkie
    November 9, 2015
    I purchased this shampoo from Entirely Pets and received a similar bottle with similar ingredients but manufacturer was Dechra not Dermapet. My Yorkie immediately began whining and trying to rub it off as if it burned him. I rinsed it off and used Malaseb instead. I tried it once again later and he reacted violently to it again. I cannot recommend this shampoo, there is something in it that is very irritant to my pet.

    Cures skin infections and alergies
    May 10, 2015
    This product is the only shampoo that removes skin infections from our pet. He is allergic to everything and gets hives, looses hair, and ear infections whenever we stop using it. It doesn't lather and foam as well as other shampoos so we end up using a lot, but it's worth the price in gold. We have tried numerous oatmeal, anti microbial, and sensitive skin shampoos with no success. This is a great product.

    Wonderful product for treating minor skin irritations and itching discomfort. No other products, including veterinarian recommendations, has been as comprehensive and effective as Mal A Ket shampoo.

    Very Good for Dogs with Alergies
    April 2, 2015
    This has been a God-send for my dog who is allergic to something and has sever iching which causes him to dig at himself. My vet recommended it to me and after seeing it's results, I highly recomend it!

    My dog suffers from recurring allergies, yeast problems and itchiness. This shampoo was recommended to me for helping to control his discomfort. It is a regular part of his treatment and he's really doing well. It is gentle, smells fresh, his coat turns out fluffy and soft. I highly recommend it - my Vet was right. At this time, along with other Vet recommendations, Malaket is a regular tool in our arsenal to keep him comfortable and hopefully yeast and itch free.

    January 18, 2015
    How does it leave the fur? I have a Pomeranian with long fur and always have used a conditioner to ease brushing. She now has skin issues, so I need to use this. Will it dry out her fur? Do you use a conditioner too? Does conditioner lessen the effect? Thank you!

    Does it contain DEA?
    1 Answer
    No it is not. Many people are concerned about DEA, or diethanolamine, being present in shampoos. This ingredient is carcnogenic and can be dangerous to your dog. This ingredient is not present in this shampoo; the full list of ingredients for this shampoo is available below: 2% chlorhexidene gluconate, 2% acetic acid, 1% ketoconazole, lauramine oxide, cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, tetrasodium EDTA, fragrance
