Our dog Dakota has itchy skin periodically. His sensitive skin gets hot spots too. We give him a daily dose of salmon oil in his food, but we were looking for additional help with it. We have used an aloe vera hot spot spay if it gets too bad, but that makes him sneeze. Some days he just itches a lot. Our groomer's products work fairly well when he gets groomed, but who can go to the groomer all the time? We still give him the occasional bath at home to help with this problem, so finding the right shampoo has been a mission of mine.
I came upon GNC Moisturizing Oatmeal Shampoo and Conditioner at Petsmart. We have tried both products and are pleased with the results. The shampoo lathers up really well and smells great. We've never tried a conditioner on him before, so we weren't sure how that would go. He stayed calm through the conditioning process, so it was a win-win. We really like using a conditioner. It makes his coat feel thick and moist. We also think it helps with his itching problem. He doesn't seem to be itching as much now. Check out this product. You can get it online at GNC, or the Petsmart store.
