Rated 5 out of 5 by HunnysMommy SHOCKED AND AMAZED!!!!!
We have a 8yr old golden retriever whose has battled with skin and ear problems forever.We have been to different vets, tried different antibiotics,supplements,steroids,shampoos,lotions...you name it we've tried it,The only thing that has ever given her relief was prednisone but the long term effects werent worth it. This shampoo is amazing..she is so peaceful right now..normally she is a constant chewer and licker. I dont think i ever seen her more relaxed. I was leary about it because of the price like others but considering what the vet bills have been in the past it is well worth it. The smell is amazing, it lathers great, and her fur is so soft. Will definitely continue using this and the conditioner.

We have been battling chronic yeast infections in our 3-year-old black Lab for about 2 years now. We have tried EVERYTHING with little to no luck. We've been to the vet several times, tried many different foods, cut out all treats, and we've tried several different shampoos with no results. We've tried coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, probiotics, antibiotics, and prednisone. You name it, we've tried it. Our poor pup has spent a majority of the last 2 years scratching and chewing himself nonstop. Our vet tested his thyroid function and when that came back normal, he put him on prednisone and a course of antibiotics and told us that he must be "allergic to something" and advised that we try experimenting with different foods. Real helpful, right?! The prednisone was horrible. While it stopped his itching and his fur grew back, the side effects were very, very harsh and it wasn't actually treating the problem, only temporarily masking it. I refuse to ever put him back on any type of steroids. As soon as he was off prednisone, the constant scratching, chewing, and hair loss started all over again. We discovered this GNC shampoo this weekend while we were at Petsmart and we figured we'd give it a try. It was one of the few shampoos that we hadn't tried yet. We also purchased the spray to use in between baths. It has now been over 10 hours since we bathed him with this shampoo and he has not scratched or chewed himself once! The results were almost instant! We've never had this kind of success before. I only wish we had known about this shampoo 2 years ago! It could have saved us a huge amount of time, money, and frustration. To say I'm ecstatic is a huge understatement. This is the most progress we've made in dealing with this issue. With all of the other medicated shampoos we've tried, he would always be back to scratching and chewing within an hour or less after his bath and that horrible yeasty smell would never fully go away. With this shampoo, he has now made it 10, almost 11 hours without scratching one single time and he smells great! I plan to bathe him twice a week with this shampoo until his fur has completey grown back and will use the spray every day he doesn't have a bath.
About the shampoo itself: It has a really nice lavender scent. Most medicated shampoos smell like....well, medicine, but not this stuff. It also lathers up extremely well and it doesn't take a lot to get a good lather. Just make sure that you leave it on your dog for at least 5 minutes before rinsing so that the medicine has enough time to be absorbed by the skin.
If you have a dog with any sort of bacterial or fungal skin issues, you absolutely must try this shampoo. It is a bit pricey, but it's totally worth every penny. It's a lot cheaper than the vet! Thanks, GNC!

We've had an ongoing battle with yeast skin infections on our Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. They love water including mud puddles which doesn't help the infection. The amount of money we've spent in vet bills, medicated shampoos and antibiotics was ridiculous. I bought the shampoo and was amazed how quickly it works. Day 1 - all redness was gone. Day 3 - all scabs have dried up and are falling off. I'm going to buy the spray for in between shampoos as suggested by another reviewer. Can't wait until their hair grows back and they go back to looking & smelling fabulous!

My english bulldog was having some kind of fungal skin infection going on & we tried several different shampoos with no change..She would still smell horrible after washing her & her skin problem was not getting any better..I decided to buy this shampoo & conditioner based on reviews I had read & I will say I'm absolutely in love with this shampoo,,not only is her skin getting better & we noticed a huge difference with just the first wash..She smells soo clean, not just for a few hours but for many days after..Her skin is looking so great,no more flaking either..I hate that I had to spend almost $40.00 on this for her when I don't pay that much for my own shampoo,,but with these results I'd definitly buy this shampoo over & over again...Great product.... :)
