Oatmeal & Aloe Vera Shampoo
Oatmeal & Aloe Vera Shampoo 78 78
Oatmeal & Aloe Shampoo One of the most forgotten components of treating any skin condition in veterinary medicine is often the use of supportive shampoo therapy. As medically and surgically trained doctors, many veterinarians will often use drug therapies only, sometimes forgetting that shampoo therapy can often help in all sorts of skin/coat conditions, from dry, flakey coats to those pets who suffer from recurrent skin infections from underlying hormonal diseases like hypothyroid dogs or allergic dogs and cats. Many times effective shampoo therapy can significantly lower doses of prescription drugs needed in treating many of these secondary skin conditions. 1800petmeds oatmeal and aloe shampoo is one of the most economic, yet versatile and helpful shampoos that I have used, compared to many of the more expensive shampoos sold. I have found this product especially useful in those pets with very sensitive skin that have often reacted to other shampoo products. I will often combine its use with the 1800petmeds oatmeal and aloe conditioner as well for maximal effect on coat quality. With main ingredients aloe and oatmeal, this product is quite soothing and moisturizing to most types of coats, and wont dry out the coats like other stronger products. By also removing contact allergens, it will often cut down on those itchy allergic pets, especially during the allergy seasons. One never has to worry about overusing this product, as I have even recommended it up to twice weekly in some allergic pets. Clients find the odor quite pleasant as well, and it wont wash away topical flea and tick medications that many clients often use. I have seen very little side effects with this shampoo and highly recommend it either as a primary shampoo or to help with allergic skin disease. If your pet's skin has redness, sores or an odor, however, it is best to consult with a veterinarian on which shampoo is best to use, as sometimes secondary bacterial or yeast infections will need more specific products to address these secondary issues. My overall rating of this wonderful and economic product is a 5. Its effectiveness is a 4 and its ease of use is a 5. 10/27/2008
Love This Shampoo! This is the perfect shampoo for a fluffy white Bishon who loves to be bathed. It lathers nicely and gets him really clean. It keeps his sensitive skin from itching and he has a wonderful smell after he is bathed. 07/21/2008
Great Job I use the Shampoo for both of my Goldens. It keeps their coats shiny. I also use the Oatmeal and Aloe Vera Conditioner for my older Golden. It has improved his skin and reduced his scratching. 04/09/2015
effective We rescued 2 raggedy dogs not knowing they were a Westie and Scottie. They were in very sad shape and so that day my husband drove all over town trying to get them into a vet. Finally, one cared enough to realize these two ragamuffins needed help immediately, and took them in right away. A big problem with the Westie was also a severe skin condition. We tried medicated shampoo but it didn't work, then I saw the Oatmeal and Aloe Vera Shampoo and Conditioner on PetMeds. The vet suggested we leave the Aloe conditioner on for 5 minutes. Within 3 weeks our Westie's skin was healed. After years of spoiling, those little ones have now passed, and we continue to use the shampoo and conditioner on the other 2 rescues that are now ruling the roost. 04/09/2015

My cat has allergies which cause her to scratch, groom relentlessly, gnaw at her tail, shake her head and scratch at her ears. Her fur is very soft and her skin seems healthy. No mites, no fleas. Not sure the exact nature of the allergy, but he have determined it is not a food allergy. Would you recommend Epi-Soothe or the Oatmeal/Aloe Vera Shampoo, or something else altogether?
Answer:No it will not . Or it didn't help my dogs dry skin.
Answer:Thank you for your question. The Oatmeal and Aloe Vera shampoo will coats, moisturizes, softens, and protects your pet's skin. It will not address any allergies your furry pal may have.
The vet told me that puppies need to get a bath every 15 days but I want the itching to go away, what can I do? PLEASE HELP! My puppy is 3 months.
Answer:You should bathe your puppy once a month. But if you need to bathe your pup more often use a moisturzing shampoo like the oatmeal and aloe on this site. Also a dry shampoo would work also to keep the pup fresh smelling. If the pup is itching that bad then take it to vet. Could be dry skin or mites or allergy reaction to food or anything. When my black lab pup was 10 weeks he use to scratch alot. I found out it was dry skin to allergies. My vet told me at the time to use a oatmeal shampoo that was good for puppies. tearless.But if you use the oatmeal aloe one on here watch the eyes. Good Luck!
Answer:Please follow your vet's advice. Over bathing may worsen irritated skin. Please consult with your veterinarian about the cause of the skin irritation. Your puppy's diet as well as the presence of an infection may be a factor in the irritation.
I am a very picky pet parent; when I shop the very first thing I look for are the words "Made in USA". Where is your shampoo & conditioner made?
I have a pom she is 9 yrs old. She is always scratching and bitting her legs and scratching her belly to the point of bleeding. What can I do?
Answer:You need to bring your pom to the VET and have it check and find out what is wrong. This shampoo is the best for itchy skin issues. I would recommend to give it a try.
Answer:Thank you for your question Nala and happy holidays. I'm sorry your furry buddy is always scratching and as a professional groomer you may want to take the following steps:
1. Schedule an appointment with your veterinarian to discuss your furry buddy's condition.
2. Check your pet's food, meat by-products, corn, wheat or soy can can cause allergic reactions which leads to itching and scratching.
3. Supplement your pet's food with an omega-3 supplement, Omega 3 fatty acids, an antioxidant helps maintain healthy skin, joints, and organs.
4. A soothing shampoo/conditioner combo(Item 10383) will gently cleans as it heals and re-moisturizes dry and irritated skin. Both made in the USA.
I hope this information helps and good luck.
