Customer Reviews
Malapet Medicated Shampoo is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! I have never posted a review of a product. After finding Malapet, I had to do so. My dog, Merlin, is going on 14 years old. He is an Australian Shepard and Golden Retriever mix. Several years ago I noticed a small patch of black on his belly. It didn't seem to bother him at the time. The vet was't concerned and recommended an oatmeal shampoo. Over time, it grew worse and Merlin developed a horrible odor. The smell was like corn chips. He was hard to be around and that was sad for us all! Our dogs are a part of our family. They are my babies! The odor at times was unbearable. The carpets smelled, his bed smelled... He scratched excessively, he lost patches of hair, and he was miserable. I took him back to the vet and he prescribed an antibacterial shampoo. I noticed that his skin was better in the winter than in the summer. I wasn't sure what was going on. I even changed his diet. I was at a point where I was desperate to help our beloved pet. Going to the vet didn't seem to be helping us any. I began to research his symptoms and quickly learned he had a yeast infection of his skin. I'm not sure why a vet wouldn't know this. The oatmeal shampoo was horrible for this condition and the antibacterial did nothing either. I looked around and found Malapet on this website. I ordered it and used it just as directed. I could not believe the difference after even 1 shampoo. He smelled, well, normal, for lack of a better word! It really works. I don't need to use it in the winter, only the summer when the heat and humidity increase. Be sure to leave it on for 10-15 minutes once it's lathered up. I blow dry Merlin afterwards to make sure there's no wet areas on him. You have to keep moisture at bay. I hope this works for you and your pet like it did for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you pet owners Just like the reviews say, THIS WORKS! My dachshund had a severe rash under his front armpit. He would use his back paw and scratch the front pitt like a monkey! He was MISERABLE. Hes been on many meds, vet said, fungus, bacterial, yeasty etc. One even said he has ingrown hairs and I should squeeze his pitts to get the hair to come out! huh? really? pfft! I read the reviews and I thought wow, there are people saying key words, pet smelled swampy, like a skunk, smelled even after being washed. It was music to my ears, someone understood what my pet was going through. I use to buy all the ODOR smelly gets your pet clean and fresh guaranteed bottles of shampoo, which NEVER WORKED, I spent $$$ on vet bills. My dog would have to washed everyday because he smelled so bad, I put him in the tub, and he would cry like Lucille Ball on I love Lucy show, when she got in trouble, whaaaaaaaaaa! haha poor guy FINALLY SOMETHING THAT WORKS. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY, by the 2nd wash, I could see the rash going away, the SMELL IS GONE. I wash him about every 2-3 days during allergy season, to prevent the rash from revealing its ugly head, but hes Not on any medications. Thanks to malapet shampoo! thank you pet owners for sharing your honest positive reviews!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have seen a difference in less then a week ! I bought the shampoo last week. I was totally surprised it arrived so quickly (thank you). I have bath my pug 2x since and I see a difference. It is like a magic eraser. I am totally shocked at how well it works. The darkness under her belly really was concerning. We have changed her food To a starch free kibble as well. We fed her the best food (orjen) and what we thought was a healthy treat, carrots. unfortunately we caused the yeasty belly and pits. Strongly suggest you get the bottle!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I washed my 2 year old pittie with this and 5 days later the horrible odor he had all the time is completely gone! The odor was terrible and it always came back just 2-3 days after bathing him. This REALLY REALLY works!

Does this shampoo kill ringworm?

Hi, this would remove bacteria and fungus on the skin however you may want to use Clotrimazole Cream which helps with ringworms. Here is the link below: http://www.1800petmeds.com/Clotrimazole+Cream-prod10589.html

After the Malapet bath and you've rinsed your dog really well, if there is any residue left and our dog licks himself can it hurt him?

Asked by: Unite53
There shouldn't be any residue left because you will need to rinse it off completely with water. Do not allow your pet to lick the shampoo while bathing.
