OMG Riley, stop licking!
Itchy, stinky, and so much fun. We love dogs! Our dog, Riley, has had a lifetime fighting off skin irritations because he was born with Addison’s disease. His immune system isn’t the best and he breaks out in huge itchy hives. Riley needs to be bathed often to keep him clean and prevent infections.
We go through a lot of shampoos. When we choose a shampoo we look for several things. Few chemicals. We want ingredients we understand. And it has to be affordable and not break him out worse!
These are some of our favorites:
All Natural & Organic canine de-shedding shampoo KING KLEAN is specially formulated for man’s best friend. King Kanine is natural hypo-allergenic, eco-friendly, non-toxic, organic to USDA standards shampoo.
Only 6 natural ingredients – Coconut oil, Olive oil, Jojoba oil, Rosemary oil, Lemongrass and Organic Aloe Vera. I love that you can use this product on yourself too!
This delicate formula was created to rinse off easily and will leave your dog not only smelling amazing but also super soft. It is a very light shampoo and you only need a few drops for a large dog and it washes right out.
Tropiclean Oxymed Anti-Itch Oatmeal Shampoo
This one was recommended to us by our vet because it is soap free and the soothing oatmeal helps Riley’s skin to feel better quickly.
We use this one frequently, more in the warmer months because it is very thick and we can let it soak into his skin for a while before washing it off.
Earthbath Hot Spot Relief Shampoo for Dogs
Riley gets hot spots that he just won’t leave alone. We know that he has an allergy to anything with wheat in it. Just the tiniest bit will leave him with terrible sores all over. The tea tree oil and Aloe Vera in this one really settles him down.
The pure and natural ingredients in this tea tree and aloe shampoo soothe and relieve dry, itchy skin caused by hot spots, bug bites, and minor dermatitis.
