    Review for ResiCORT Leave-on Lotion (8 oz)
    March 24, 2015
    Does not work nearly as well or as quickly as Allerderm Spot On, but it is not cost prohibitive either. It is worth a try for dermatitis before surrendering to the high cost of a veterinary.

    Great Product for Topical Treatment
    March 7, 2015
    Provides relief to pets for minor topical scratches, cuts, or skin allergies especially when the pet has scratched or licked the area to an inflamed state. The antiseptic properties help with healing. Depending on severity and location of the issue, it may be necessary to wrap the area or use a head cone to keep the pet from getting at the area being treated.

    good product for allergy skin
    January 29, 2015
    one my of cats has food allergy and environmental allergy. the symptom is scratching, over licking, skin gone red and inflammation.

    my cat took few course treament in Cephalexin and steroids. it's worked for a while but got worse when stop the treament.

    this product is recommended by my Vet finally. as she also did not want my cat took to much steroids.

    She gave a little one in small volumn to me and i tried to use for my cat. it's worked. of coz, it took few days to recover. his skin changed to pale red from sharp red, and the frequency of chewing and scratching is lower than before.

    in the meantime, i've tried to find out what's material or food get the allergy.

    finally i found that and keep out of such materials and food. this lotion just in case the allergy come again.

    My dog was chewing on her legs and scratching all night long. The poor thing was just on fire. My dog groomer recommended this product to me and I couldn't believe what a difference it made using this along with the shampoo. This is the best hot spot lotion I have ever used and it's the best!

    I have a Westie that has a problem with licking & biting his feet. I took him to the doctor and he told me to try this lotion. The first time I used it on him the color of his feet went from fire red to natural color. He stopped licking & biting his feet!
    I have used it for six months & he still is not licking or biting his feet!!
    IT is GREAT!!

    Works for cats too
    November 9, 2013
    I've been owned by many cats in my life but never had one with seasonal allergies. Spike suffered with itchy skin and hot spots and kept most of his belly and legs mowed for months at a time. He's prediabetic so vet couldn't give him prednisone for his itching. Found this product in searching online and ordered thinking it probably wouldn't work. It has been nothing less than a miracle. Scratching stopped immediately and fur is growing back. Skin looks healthy. We're both happy. Thanks.

    Review for ResiCORT Leave-on Lotion (8 oz)
    November 2, 2013
    We have used ResiCORT lotion on our mini-dachsund for several years and have been very pleased with the results. It helps with our dog's skin allergies so she doesn't scratch herself constantly. ResiCORT also has a nice scent and leaves our dog smelling great.

    Great purchase!
    February 15, 2013
    Great product! Super happy and so relieved. Jax was miserable as the skin on his big floppy ears dried out so much they would crack. Now, I apply the product 2 times a week and they are baby soft and his fur is finally growing back.

    I use it on this back as well to help stop dry itchy skin that would flake so much it looked like powder on his back. Can't believe the difference. Thank you for making a superior product. Jax is my baby boy and I hated to see him so uncomfortable. He loves the extra attention when its lotion time! :-)

    Review for ResiCORT Leave-on Lotion (8 oz)
    February 8, 2013
    This is truly an amazing product. Only an injection from the vet relieved my poor spitz from the dreaded 'itch'. He suffered severely mentally, physically and spiritually.
    I did the usual bathe with his special shampoo, let him have a good shake and put the Resicort on.
    OMG I did that yesterday and he is actually back to the most playful boy. Brings tears to my eyes that to see him happy to be 'alive' again.

    ResiCORT , so easy to use
    December 2, 2012
    I was so excited to know there was something I could use for my pet's allergies in between baths. ResiCORT has a pleasant scent & is not hard to apply. I use it on problem spots After applying the lotion, I watch to see if the itch is better. She does stop itching the spots I have treated and they dry up much faster. They are fewer spots with hair missing from her chewing or rubbing off now thanks to ResiCORT.

    Lotion is easy to apply
    November 12, 2012
    Works just like hydrocortisone cream in the store, but this lotion is easier and faster to apply. Stops the itching and my dog's fur on his tail has finally started to grow back. It's expensive but doesn't take as much as when using hydrocortisone cream.

    skin allergy relief
    August 6, 2012
    My dog is 11 yrs old and using Resicort is the best thing I have done for him.This product keeps him from licking, scratching and chewing the hotspots and skin allergies he suffers from. Very easy to use. I just rub the lotion into the coat and skin and thats it. Sometimes I do not need to reapply it for a whole month perhaps even longer. It seems to last for a very long time. I have tried so many products over the years. Resicort is the only product I need to use to help my dog from making his skin issues worse.

    Best thing for skin allergies so far
    August 6, 2012
    I got this a couple of weeks ago, and so far it is the best thing I've bought for my chihuahua mix's atopy. I've been able to decrease the amount of steroids I give. It smells pretty strongly of orange out of the bottle, but the smell dissipates as soon as it's dry. I put it on after a bath or rinse, and again when I see him biting or scratching. It really works! I've bought lots of things to help him not itch, and this is my #1 product so far! It's not cheap, but it works and they send it out so fast, it is hard to believe. Fabulous service!

    Finally Itch Free
    February 8, 2012
    My dog is a rat terror miniature doberman pinscher. She is allergic to everything. Her eyes water and she itches like crazy, licking her stomach so bad the skill brakes open in patches. She also scratches her front elbows with her back legs and they get irritated and bloody some times. Using the ResiCORT along with the ResiSOOTH she is finally less itchy. She does not lick her stomach and her front elbows are healing. I use the ResiSOOTHE in between ResiCORT. I use it as a lotion for the rest of her flaky dry skin.

    The photo is of her stomach healed. All thought it is not fully yet. It has been about two and a half weeks using the combination. I hope no more licking or itching any more.

    Thanks again,
    Michelle and Little Brandy

    Very pleased with ResiCort Leave-on Lotion. It has helped relieve a great deal of my Shih Tzu's itching. Her hot spot areas are no longer hard and crusty. I use it while she is still damp from her bath. I will definately order this product again.

    No More Hot Spots
    December 12, 2011
    I have tried many products and spent a lot of money at the vet trying to relieve my dog of hot spots that made her miserable. A friend told me about RESI-CORT. It was truly surprising how quickly it took away her itching. Thank you RESI-CORT! I will always have some on hand.

    Works well for itchy dog
    October 21, 2011
    My MinPin gets very itchy from environmental allergies and this leave-on hydrocortisone lotion was recommended by my vet, since oral antihistamines don't seem to help much. I used it as a conditioner for her last bath after shampooing with Epi-Soothe, and have used it just on the itchy spots as a topical treatment since then. It seems to help more than anything else I've tried. And it smells like bubblegum. Quite pricey for what it is.
