    Great Shampoo for skin irritations

    I have a cocker spaniel dog that is highly allergic to the environment, etc. This is the only product I have used continuously with some good results. She has less itching and this shampoo does not irritate her skin like many other products.

    This shampoo is remarkable

    It smells Devine and works even better. My doberman has suffered from skin rash and has had skin bumps ever since adopted.
    After one use, his coat shined like diamond dust, and the red spots were visibly less inflamed.
    It also seemed to dry up the bumps on his head.
    He is not itchy, and his coat looks really great.

    My little Chi girl has had flaky coat no matter what we did. After just one wash not only she glisters but the flakiness is much less apparent.

    Both the dogs had been washed once. I have no doubt that upon more washes will se more great results.
    All in all, I very highly recommend this shampoo.

    I generally use another brand but this one came with high ratings. I would say it's almost what we are looking for. It seems to keep his allergies calm for about 3-4 days.

    Awesome product

    I also wrote a review for the rinse. Use these two products together for maximum benefits. My dog was itching, had sores and hair loss all over forehead and face. Starting using these products along with a change to a grain free and fish diet, which also benefits the skin and coat and now he looks great. No more cone of shame, we now have our beautiful husky back!

    In search of shampoo for dog with allergies
    January 14, 2014
    This shampoo was recommended on the French Bulldog Rescue website as one of two often used for itchy, allergic Frenchies to combat fungal and bacterial infections. The other was Micro Tek. I ordered both. So far, I think I prefer the Micro Tek over this Zymox product. My Frenchie's coat tends to get a bit oily within a couple days after a Zymox shampoo and does not with Micro Tek. The scent of the Zymox is more subtle if that is important to you. With weekly use of one or the other of these shampoos, we have not had a fungus/bacteria outbreak since the leaf mold of fall (about 4 months) and there has been plenty of opportunity for an outbreak during this wet winter.

    amazing product

    ur Pug, Lucky had the worst skin problem as a puppy. After trying several rounds of antibiotics which cleared it up, but it kept coming back. Another Vet recommended using Zymox Enzymatic shampoo ,which cleared up the problem after a few uses. Lucky is now 12 years old! I also use the shampoo on my other pug who is now 6yrs old. Have recommended it to friends & all had good results for dry , itchy scaly, infected skin. Awesome product!

    Zymox Shampoo

    I love this shampoo. It has really helped clear up the itchy skin syndrome (itchiness for no known reason) it has brightened up Chloe's fur and curbed excessive chewing. I wish it smelled better(more fruity or something) but I give a second wash to add a nice smell and that works too. Would highly recommend all Zymox products they work great.

    Calming, therapeutic shampoo

    My dog suffers with allergies. Zymox shampoo along with Zymox rinse help ease the itching, while making his hair soft, touchable and smelling wonderful.
    I use this regularly to provide relief for my pug.

    best purchase ever
    June 8, 2013
    I admit I have been buying this shampoo for a few years. I have an old english sheepdog, rosa who has very senstive skin, I have her groomed and I bring this bottle of shampoo with me. Any other shampoo caused her to scratch her self raw. This shampoo is wonderful. Just to note she does not have any bacterial or fungal problems, nor has she ever had those problems. Just really sensitive skin. It smells wonderful as well.

    We used the shampoo and rinse. Misty almost right away stopped scratching and crying. Her dried and itchy skin seemed to almost return to normal by the next day. Giving a bath once a week is keeping her skin healthier and she is happier and more active. Parents are happier too.

    I purchased this product for my 14yr. old peke that has had allergies and itchy,dry, flakey skin for most of his life. I wish I had found this product much sooner. I brought it to my groomer to use on him at his last grooming and he was not itchy and his skin and fur looked so much better after using it. His groomer was very impressed also. Happy Dog!!

    This shampoo is all I use on my 4 dogs. It leaves them with a soft clean smell. They are all white/apricot poodles and their fur is so bright and clean. Zymox shampoo helps eliminate any "itchies" they may have.

    Zymox shampoo & Zymox Rinse
    October 24, 2012
    Fantastic product!!!
    Totally healed my dog's awful hotspots that he got for the first time this summer. He was absolutely miserable and as a result so was I. After some investigating, I found Zymox shampoo & the Zymox rinse. Both products brought Pele' relief after the first use. And, together with the Zymox topical spray, my doggie was healed & back to his happy playful ways. I am totally satisfied with these products and will never be without them!!!
    Thanks for a great product!

    This shampoo & rinse is the best I have ever used.
    My dog has allergies and will scratch until his hair is falling out. Trip after trip to vet for shots that work for about month. Zymox has stopped the scratching !

    My dog is using KetoChlor Shampoo once a wk. for chronic skin condition(s) for over a year now. He's also on Ketoconazole pills ea. day. Is this Shampoo like KetoChlor or Better than Ketochlor? Will it work like KetoChlor? I'm really interested in the enzyme action you mention in these products.
