Betagen 31 32
Betagen Betagen spray product review: One of the biggest problems seen in every day conventional veterinary practice are skin allergies which are often due to contact/inhalent allergies, food allergies and/or flea bite allergies. Sensitive dogs can become so intensely itchy that they often create areas of moist dermatitis known as hot spots, which can be quite painful and sensitive.. These hot spots often become secondarily infected from the repeated self trauma seen in these pets. This wonderful topical spray not only contains an antibiotic in gentamycin, which is so highly effective against the staph bacterial species that overgrows on these areas, but also betamethasone, which is a powerful anti inflammatory and anti-itch steroid derivative, which stops the itch cycle in its track. For those pets prone to itching and secondary eruptions, whether they be these hot spots of secondary pustules, pimples, scaling and redness, this very soothing spray is highly effective in controlling both the infection and inflammation with such lesions. Along with internal therapy with antihistamines, fatty acids, and more natural low allergy diets, many clients are extremely pleased with the performance of this versatile spray, which often allows us to use less prescription oral drugs and antibiotics. I therefore give this product an overall rating of a 5 and efficacy of 5 with ease of use a 5. 06/30/2009
Im sure this product would work on the right skin irritation but for my Golden I bathed her and put the Betagen daily 1wk and ran out she is 131 lbs ordered another bottle this time a120ml and she seems to have new sores since then. Help! Vet said could be low Thyroid, test came out ok not low enough for oral meds, and not safe for oral antibiotics not he said. also shampooing with Melaseb 09/14/2014
Boston-Pug (Bug) My boy had a cone put around his head since his lesion needed healing after scratching it to oozing blood. After his finished powder to stop the bleeding and antibiotic, we sprayed this on him twice daily. A few days later we already see VAST improvement! Thank you, Betagen for saving our pup's life! 08/03/2014
Works awesome on hot spots! Love this stuff 06/21/2014
Great product! My dog suffers from allegies and Betagen gives my dog on contact relief. My vet prescribed a smaller bottle so I was pleased that PetMed offers a bottle with more ounces. 01/18/2014

We've used Betagen successfully before on our Airedale's Hot Spots. He just got another one, we only have one does left and the Vet won't write a prescription without seeing him The soonest they can do that is 5 days from now. Is there something available over the counter that might work?
Answer:There are some over-the-counter products such as Excel Hydrocortisone Spray With Aloe Vera and Be Soothed. Tea Tree Oil Skin Relief that may provide temporary relief of itching from minor skin irritation, inflammation, insect bites and seborrheic dermatitis. However speak to your veterinarian to determine if these are appropriate. Your pet should be seen to determine your pet should be treated for an infection.
Answer:There are some products that are over-the-counter such as the Excel Hydrocortisone Spray used for the temporary relief of itching from minor skin irritation, inflammation, insect bites and seborrheic dermatitis. However you should bring in your pet to be evaluated. Your pet may need something else such as an antibiotic if the skin has become infected.
My lab is about 6 years old and developed a red lump on his belly. I took him to see the vet and they tested and told me its nothing to be concerned of and it could just be fatty skin that is normal for labs. He said to just watch out for it to see if it grows. Its been bout two months now and it may have grown a little if not at all. I wanted to find a skin medication that could reduce the size and possible remove the lump. Could someone recommend the best option for me? Thank you!
Answer:This medication is indicated for superficial bacterial infections of the skin. Consult with your veterinarian of appropriate options for your pet.
my vet gave this to me for my cats bad reaction to some sort of insect bite. Inside cat no fleas. It was healing but after 3 days, he scratched it raw again. Can I use cortisone with this?
Answer:This product contains a steroid so it is unlikely that it would cause itching since its main purpose is to treat itching and reduce inflammation, you should consult with your veterinarian to see if there are any other factors that may have caused the itching.
