My mom washed my dog using her shampoo, which made my dog's skin dry. He kept itching at it and it became so bad that we considered taking him to the vet. But before we could make an appointment, I suggested we used this. And let me tell you, it is a miracle in a bottle. My dog stopped scratching after I took him a warm shower and massaged his skin with the shampoo for 10 minutes. It also left him very clean and his fur is shiny as ever. It's also very cheap and just so helpful. Awesome product.
