Effective shampoo/good price
June 12, 2015
This product was recommended by our very allergic bull mastiff's allergist. It works well, and this price is better than at the vet's office.

pyoben shampoo
February 8, 2015
the pyoben shampoo has added a significant improvement to my puppy that has puppy mange. we have also noticed a smoother coat and longer lasting fresh smell on our other dog with allergies
August 26, 2014
First I want to say that the first bottle of this I got from the vet because my White Standard Poodle was having some serious skin issues. I was instructed to give him a bath two or three times a week (yay!) which is a major undertaking around here but the results were immediate. Obviously, the 8 ounce bottle wasn't going to last long so I ordered these larger bottles for us. I'd like to add that if your vet prescribes this item, go to the drugstore and buy a net-type loofa and use it with the shampoo - it will go a lot farther. And one last thing. This is not a beauty-type shampoo - it's medicine (contains peroxide) so get your vet's OK before using it.

Pyoben Shampoo
August 8, 2014
Pyoben Shampoo is a very good product for dogs with sensitive skin issues and summer heat. You can also use it full strength as a lotion. The active ingredient Benzoyl peroxide is the key.

Excellent shampoo and the one I highly recommend for any dog, I've tried other brands and my 3 year old dog (Boxer) feels better when I give him a bath with this shampoo

His coat feels smooth and shiny

My Westie gets pyoderma (staph) from time to time and I use this for the medicated baths. It works great and I would recommend it for dogs that get follicular infections or pyoderma like my dog.

Works great!
May 28, 2014
My dogs started having little reddish bumps popping all over their bodies, it made them smell bad and they kept scratching a lot. My vet recommended bathing them with Pyoben twice a week. By the end of the first week we started seeing improvement and the bumps were going away. Now by the 3rd week they are almost completely gone and they barely scratch themselves as they were, and the bad smell is gone.

Pyoben has worked great on my dogs!

Exceptional Medicated Shampoo

Pyoben provides the much needed relief to my Aussie Shephard for his persistant allergies. It's easy to apply, non fragrant and very easy to rinse off. With consistent use the allergy symptoms have been greatly reduced.

Yeast infection eradication
March 18, 2014
Sir Fritz was pleagued with yeast infections on his paws, groin area and one front leg pit (that is what I call it anyway). After the initial two week every other day routine, the infection cleared up and has not returned, his coat has grown back and I still bathe him with this product once a week. I am very happy with the results. Thank You!

Works along with prescription meds
February 19, 2014
Our dog has Demodectic mange, which takes months and patience to treat. In conjunction with the prescribed meds, this shampoo works well to make our dog more comfortable. We give a bath at least once a week. The shampoo helps flush the follicles out, and with the 3% Benzoyl Peroxide, it helps supplement the work of keeping the infections under control. The shampoo can be kind of drying, so we use a oatmeal based conditioner afterwards to help with the itching.

Best Shampoo for Skin Problems
January 11, 2014
This is the shampoo that most vets recommend to shampoo dogs with chronic skin problems. It works deep at the skin level to remove the grease that develops with the irritation. I have used this shampoo for over 6 years to help control the skin problems for my westie girl. When you have a dog with chronic skin problems you must bathe them once a week to keep their skin clean. It is not drying and she always has a nice coat. Much cheaper to purchase here than at the vet office.

This One Seems to be Working
December 9, 2013
I tried a few products to reduce a skin infection that seems to be coming from the yard - we have already eliminated food. This is the first product that seems to be working. My dog is white and her skin is very sensitive. The skin is a little red after using but she doesn't seem to be bothered by it, and the itch is gone. I've used it twice per week in the last two weeks and the rashes are pretty much gone.

Must-have for schnauzer owners
November 18, 2013
If you have battled schnauzer bumps for years and tried everything else, I can tell you that this is the shampoo that will end your quest. I saw immediate results after the first bath and by the third bath the bumps were all but gone. For the first time since my oldest miniature schnauzer was born, she actually relaxes when she is at rest. This shampoo has actually changed her personality. She will now curl up in your lap and enjoy being touched without reacting to every sensation. Having tried shampoos that smelled worse than they worked, Pyoben is a refreshing change. Though I would not consider it to be fragrant, I can say that the smell of this shampoo is mildly tolerable and certainly affords the opportunity to use a deodorant spray without fear of an odiferous clash.

Works well.

Our black lab has a flea allergy that causes her to scratch continually. Her skin was scaly and oily. This shampoo relieved her itch and scales. Would highly recommend this product.

Love my molly
October 20, 2013
My Westie will always have issues with her skin. The first shampoo my vet have me try did a good job but she though this might serve her better. After the first wash those little bumps washed away. I continue to use it and with each wash I can see the scale from her skin rise up through the lather. I need to wash her every 4 days and I leave her to sit after washing 10 min. twice. This has gone on since 9-8-13. Hopefully soon I can shorten that to once a week. I don't get much lather but that might be because her skin gets so greasy or maybe this shampoo doesn't lather up like some do.

It really works
October 11, 2013
My 3 year old English Mastiff had an issue with crusty little skin bumps. After using Pyoben Shampoo one time it cleared up his skin and left his fur nice and soft. I've tried other shampoos but never had the results that I did with Pyoben.

This one did the trick!!! So happy!!!!
September 24, 2013
Years of dry, flaky, crusty, and pimply skin has disappeared in only 6 weeks!!!! Vet told us to use this religiously and nothing else, no conditioner. We used it twice a week for 6 weeks on both our boys. One is highly sensitive and allergic to dust mites and flea bites, and is so itchy, that he bites his paws until they are bloody stumps, even with socks and boots on!!! The other boy was always filled with crusts, all over, but mostly toward the back. Has not had one crust in all this time. Great for getting hard damaged skin off. We are now down to once a week. Boys look and feel so much better. Tried so many others, but this is the one that did what the vet said it would do!!!

Great Product
March 19, 2013
I use this weekly for my little sheltie. She has continuing problems with staph dermatitis. The vet recommended Pyoben Shampoo for her & she rarely has outbreaks of the dermatitis now.
The cost of purchasing the Pyoben from the vet was $24.00; the cost of purchasing from Enitrely Pets is $14.00. Considering I give her a bath weekly, it's a huge cost savings over the period of a year.

Wonderful medicated shampoo
March 14, 2013
The vet originally prescribed this for the dermatitis on our Jack Russell's ear flaps. The secret is to leave it on for the full 10 minutes before thoroughly rinsing (by dunking the earflap in a glass of water). Had to use an e-collar for that operation! I use it for our labradoodle's all over dandruff, but less frequently. I only use it when the problem appears; not routinely. It works wonders.

Superior product!
February 25, 2013
I have never believed in shampoos as a potential cure to skin conditions. In the past, medications were ultimately required.
I adopted a 2 1/2 year old Doberman. Within the first two weeks his hair was falling out, leaving the appearance of some kind of skin condition.
My vet has never ever suggested a shampoo in the past for my other dogs. He did recommend this one, though.
I was skeptical but followed the directions on the bottle.
HONESTLY, i could tell a difference within the first 24 hours. The condition completely cleared up and i will only use this shampoo forever. It is amazing. It also decreases natural hair loss through shedding.
My dog's coat is so amazing that people often comment on it. The shampoo leaves a coating after it has been rinsed that is extraordinary.
I have recommended this shampoo to many friends who Love it, too.
