    Why Did They Stop Making This?
    August 15, 2015
    This worked on my dogs, who suffer from allergies, like no other product I've found. I've tried to get it but was told by my Vet that the company has stopped making it. I have yet to find a replacement.

    Great Product!
    August 15, 2015
    I've been using this for years so I can say it's a great product. Use it after bathing and leave it on. Massage it into the dog's skin and in between their pads and toes on their paws. It must be soothing to them because my dog just loves to get this done. The problem I have is that it's been back-ordered so I've yet to receive the product from Entirely Pets. I had to run back to my Vet to buy it since we ran out and we need it for our dog's allergies.

    My girl has many allergies that translate to itchiness. Her feet get infected also. We bath her with ketachlor and rinse with resicort, it helps a lot.

    This is the only product which brings any relief from itching for my very old wire hair Jack Russell. He needs it about once a week.

    Works very well to help control itching & scaling
    August 13, 2014
    My dog has allergies and perhaps even seborrhea and I use this product weekly to keep both at bay. Although it doesn't entirely resolve the problem from (weekly) shampoo to shampoo, it definitely relieves the itchiness and the scaling he can develop on his skin.

    Finally Something That Works

    Our Maltese has some kind of skin allergy and has scratched and chewed most of his hair off his back and rump. We have seen vets and tried other lotions but the ResiCort leave on lotion combined with the Cortisoothe shampoo had his skin looking almost normal in an hour and now he finally has hair growing back. Thank You

    Once I figured how to use the product it worked very well. Wish I had know about this 11 years ago for my GSD. His skin allergies have really made for a low quality of life for him. The first time I used it per the instructions which was right down the middle of the back. I used to much to begin with and left his fur gunky. I ended up wiping some off with a damp rag. The next time after shampooing him I used a damp rag to remove excess water. I put a little in my hand and worked it in to his skin. That worked much better. It took a few handfuls but really worked well. Did the same for the other two pets who are much smaller and got great results with them as well. I have not noticed the flaking as of yet. Great product.

    ResiCORT for Itchy Skin - Cats Dogs and Horses!
    October 10, 2013
    I first bought this product in 2000 when my Lhasa Apso developed skin allergies. It is a leave on conditioner for use after bath OR on dry coat/skin as a healing lotion.

    We now use it on our young English Pointer who is prone to bumps and rashes from skin allergies. We also use it on two senior cats for the occasional flea allergy dermatitis.

    Wonderful product especially useful for multiple pet households. Highly recommend!!!

    My dog has allergies and was constantly licking/biting her paws. I used Resicort on her paws only, and it helped almost immediately. Per my vet recommendation, I used it for 4 days and then used it 3 times a week. It has relieved the itching tremendously.

    I highly recommend the product!

    Awesome stuff!!
    September 26, 2013
    I've tried pretty much everything to help my little terrier stop itching. He is soothed for about 24 hours after his bath, but then the scratching begins. This is great stuff and it doesn't take much at all. I put plastic gloves on and just put a little on my fingers and rub it in. I put it in all the itchy areas and it seems to help him for about 2 to 3 days. I reapply as needed.

    Terrific product
    September 24, 2013
    ResiCORT has done wonders for my dog's skin. She suffers from skin allergies, and will bite, lick, and scratch herself raw. Daily treatment with ResiCORT cleared up the skin wonderfully and stopped her itching, biting and licking. Then I use it on occasion, just to keep her clear. When she sees me coming with the bottle, she rolls over immediately so I can get to her belly and inside her it must feel good. I heartily recommend this for anyone whose dog has skin issues!

    This product greatly alleviated my dog's skin problem. Each time I apply it, his condition
    improves and he scratches less. He should soon be completely over it.

    So pleased that I found your website

    My Basset Hound has a skin allergy that comes from within his body. He also has a heart murmur so we are not allowed to give him meds. When we started using this product, it helped quite a bit. Vet's were charging 4 x's more for a smaller bottle. So between this and fish oil tabs he is one happy boy. I was very impressed with the service your site has given us. I highly recommend this site to anyone that needs product. No problems with order and it arrived ahead of schedule. Thank you!

    pricey but worth it
    November 29, 2012
    I have 3 dogs. Two of them have no particular sensitivity to fleas beyond occasional scratching. I've been successfully controlling any problems with topical preventives.

    I took in my mother's Jack Russell Terrier when she was unable to care for her. I live 400 miles from where Daisy had been living, and our climate is relatively warm year-round so the flea population never really ebbs. Daisy apparently is allergic to the fleas here, and I was going nuts trying to find a way to keep her skin from getting inflamed and her hair falling out from scratching and licking. I tried Rx from the vet (which works, but only for the duration of the drugs), diatomeaceous earth (what a mess!) and the topical I use on the other dogs. Nothing stopped the fleas from making her entire body become inflamed.

    Enter Virbac products: I sprayed the back yard with the outdoor area spray, the rugs and dog beds in the house with the indoor area spray, and then finally started using the ResiCORT lotion on the dog.

    I know the yard spray worked because all the dogs were scratching less than before. I never saw fleas on myself or anywhere in the house except on the dogs, so I have no evidence of the indoor spray working but I'm sure it helped, too. But where Daisy's concerned, the ResiCORT lotion finally did the trick: it truly has made a huge difference in her comfort, and my sanity. She's not taking oral corticosteroids anymore, and hasn't had skin inflammation in a couple of months. And it doesn't leave any greasy or sticky feeling on her hair or leave a lingering scent. I couldn't be happier with its performance.

    I have a shih tzu who constantly licks himself due to allergies. After a bath, I rub this lotion all over his body. He loves it and the lotion arrested his itches. In the past he would start scratching and licking himself a few hours after a bath.
    With this lotion, he is itch free for at least 2 days and then when I see him starting to scratch, I would rub the lotion on him and it calms him down. So, no more meds and injections.
    This product is great!!

    Working better than everything else tried so far!
    August 10, 2012
    I have tried a number of products to try and moderate my dogs skin condition (combined allergies and seborrhea), and this is working the best by far. The dogs itchiness has abated considerably, and his coat no longer has a foul odor a couple of days after his last bath!

    I have a 12 yr old shih tzu. He started having allergies at age 8. We tried several strategies to contain the itching, corncobbing and hot spots - including injections. None provided the relief that Resicort made. No more bleeding paws and bad smells. I would recommend this product to anyone whose dog has allergies.
