Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Genesis replacement When this was advertised as a replacement for Genesis I bought three bottles. Unfortunately it does not work as well as Genesis and does not last very long to quell the itch. My dog just has an itch. No hot spots, no hair loss, no rashes, just an itch. He scratches here and there, licks his front feet, etc. Genesis worked wonders while on the program but several weeks off the Genesis the itch would come back. With this product I have not been able to stop the itch and it is recommended that you only use the product for one week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This worked for my Pug : ) My Pug has had a horrible time with an itchy neck for a year (fat folds). I tried changing her food, changing her shampoo, Benadryl and prescription meds, even OTC Hydrocortisone cream. She has been so miserable! Couldn't get a call back with a referral from a Doggy Dermatologist and my Vet gave her out too. So, I searched this site and found this spray. I had been washing her neck every day to get rid of the oozey goop and hopefully whatever was causing her misery. I think alot of the ooze was from her scratching. One spray with this and we both could tell a difference! She scratched less and I didn't need to wash as often. So every other day for a couple of days, then 3 days between then 4. Her neck hair is finally growing back. I only sprayed her with this after her neck was washed so honestly, only about 3 times in the first week and twice this week. She no longer begs for her neck to be scratched and I can rub under her chin without setting off the firey itch. This $8 bottle saved me hundreds in vet bills. So glad now they never bothered to call me back : D So for my Sally and her itch, this worked wonderfully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This really helped my dogs itching,I waited too long in between the flee medication and found one flee on him and he got flea dermatitis from that,this stopped the itching and calmed the scratching down to nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind I love this product! Was using Genesis Spray w which is no longer available and concerned with how to keep his skin problem in check. Excel Hydro cortisone Spray was the answer. Will be using from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, AFFORDABLE Product :~) I got this for both of my dogs, who are had been CONSTANTLY scratching and biting at their paws, backs (where they can reach) and hind legs due to allergies. I have an allergy medicine, prescribed by the Vet (but also purchased here for about 1/3 of the price of getting it at the Vet!) I know something like this would have cost $20+ at the Vet, and probably not as effective. I spray ONE spray on each leg or itchy spot and the chewing stops for the rest of the day! We had a very chilly and damp spring and early summer, now we're having a hot and dry summer. Our Mini Poodle was CONSTANTLY biting his legs and back so much that he had bald spots on them! I've had this for about two weeks and those are about gone. No more scratching, biting, licking. QUIET at night! My only regret is that I didn't use 1-800-PET-MEDS sooner! I was never sure about it, my dogs are my BABIES - I'm disabled and can't do much of anything. Thanks to this spray, we ALL feel better! Thank you, 1-800-PET-MEDS, for selling QUALITY products to those of us that don't have a lot of money but would still do anything for our Fur Kids! You've made it SO much easier to be able to care for my babies affordably, instead of paying the outrageous prices at the Vet! You've saved me a few hundred dollars already and I'll keep getting everything from you that I can! This Spray has been a God send! And what I would have paid big bucks for at the Vet probably wouldn't have worked as well and as quickly. You ROCK!! Thanks for making this a better summer for my Fur Kids and their mommy <3

is this an oily spray?

I bought a similiar spray from pet store and it was oily.....making my dog an oily greasy mess when I sprayed it on her.....
Asked by: clare
No, it isn't really oily, has a bit of a creamy feel in a watery base, , easy to spray and I rub in a bit, so it starts to get into the skin before it gets licked off

I have a 7 year old beagle and she has been itching in the middle of her back for a few months and she usually starts scratching around fall/winter every year in the same spot. Gave her benedryl and it never seemed to help, took her to the vet and they gave her temporal-p which seemed to slow down the scratching but didn't stop it. Was wondering if this excel hydro spray would help. Any thoughts? (the vet did say getting her anal glands drained would help, so we did that and it did help but never stopped the itching.)
Asked by: Trey
Yes it worked wonderful for my beagle mix Lucy..Easy application too

Can this be used with TriFexis?

My dog is currently on Trifexis but is still itching. I am not sure if it is due to his flea allergy or other bug bites. Is there any danger in using these two products together?
Asked by: Boris's mom
It is safe to use this product while giving Trifexis.
