    Comments about Vet's Best Hot Spot Dog Shampoo:

    LOVE Vet's Best Hot Spot shampoo. My dog developed seasonal allergies a few years ago and was sneezing and itching SO badly she was ripping her fur out in multiple places. She especially had bad hot spots on her front paws, where she was chewing and biting nonstop trying to ease the itchiness. There were a few times that it was so bad we ended up getting her an allergy shot from the vet, but I did not like the side effects of that shot. So one year I got the Vet's Best Shampoo after doing some research online and found this to be a life saver. It smells good and really seemed to ease and soothe her hot, itchy, irritated skin. Her skin was getting raw in some spots where she couldn't stop itching and this seems very gentle on her skin and calmed the irritation down. It is easy to use, convenient to purchase (from the local pet store) and for our small dog a small amount really goes a long way. One bottle of this will last us for years. Great value and it really works!

        Comments about Vet's Best Hot Spot Dog Shampoo:

        My dog suffers from hot spots on his feet and it makes him just miserable as one heals and another pops up in a different spot. My vet recommended I try a shampoo formulated specifically for hot spots and I found this at a major online retailer. A sixteen ounce bottle ran me about $7 as an add on item which I thought was quite economical since my dog is so small and that one bottle should last me through many, many washes.

        The formula uses Tea Tree Oil, Aloe Vera, Chamomile to calm dry, itchy skin and despite being a bit strong smelling during the bathing process the smell does not linger after drying.

        After the first bath with this I noticed a definite improvement in my dog's spots and he seemed more relaxed and less prone to lick the sore areas. After a month of weekly baths his spots were gone and they have not reappeared since. He also had a bit of a dandruff problem during the summer as he likes to sit outside and sunbathe which dries out his skin. Since I started using this shampoo his dandruff has disappeared completely as well!

        Overall, I definitely recommend this! The slight smell is definitely worth it for the results!

        Comments about Vet's Best Hot Spot Dog Shampoo:

        My poor dog seems to end up with hot spots every spring/summer without fail. They make him absolutely itchy and miserable. And in turn I'm miserable from watching my dog suffer. But Vet's Best Hot Spot Dog Shampoo manages to give him the relief he so desperately needs. I just bathe him as I normally would. And let the shampoo go to work. It does have a medicinal smell but that doesn't seem to bother my dog and it doesn't bother me as long as it works. it's very effective and is the only hot spot product that takes care of the problem for my dog. It helps the hot spots heal. It doesn't just soothe them. if your dog suffers from hot spots give Vet's Best Hot Spot Dog Shampoo a try. Your dog will thank you for it. And hot spots on your dog will be a thing of the past.

        Quality of Ingredients
        It contains tea tree oil, and other natural soothing ingredients.

        Side Effects
        My dog didn't experience side effects and I wouldn't think they're all that common.

        Relieves itchy skin

        By 

        from Tampa, FL

        Comments about Vet's Best Hot Spot Dog Shampoo:

        Vet's Best Hot Spot shampoo is a great choice if your dog has itchy skin. It lathers up very well when diluted in warm water and it does a great job of getting the dog clean without irritating his skin. It even relieves him when he has itchiness. It smells kind of medicinal but it's a clean medicinal scent, mostly from the tea tree oil. Long haired dogs will still need conditioner.

        Quality of Ingredients
        The ingredients include tea tree oil, aloe vera, allantoin, panthenol, Vitamin E and chamomile. The formulation is alcohol free. It can be applied directly to a wet coat but it seems to work better when diluted in water first. Six capfuls per cup of water is the recommended dilution. I press an old water bottle into service, dilute the shampoo and give it a good shake for lather.

        Side Effects
        I have not witnessed any side effects from using this on the dog, not even on occasions when I applied it directly to his back and lathered him up that way.
