My boy has dry skin and his doctor gave me medicated shampoo and leave-in conditioner. They work fine (he doesn't scratch anymore) but they don't smell quite good and the leave-in conditioner makes his coat kind of sticky. Can you recommend any good quality shampoo and conditioner? I have that blue shampoo for white hair but that makes him scratch like crazy (poor baby ). Thanks in advance.

Maybe try an oatmeal shampoo or one that is soap free.

Maximus,

I have to say that I have been using this particular shampoo now for 6 months and I love it. Teddy does not scratch at all and it seems to be very soothing....just on my hands when I am shampooing. I am putting the link to both the shampoo and conditioner that I am using....the conditioner is awesome and Teddy very seldom has a matt where as before I started using it he was getting them all the time.

Conditioner

The conditioner says that it is 7 to 1 I believe but I just put it on Teddy straight from the bottle and he is so white and soft that people comment all the time.

Hope this helps...

By the way, I rinse really really well. And before I started using these products, Teddy had started to scratch. Now he never does.

I noticed that the shampoo on the link features a schnauzer, I believe they are notorious for skin problems. My Cricket certainly has lived with them her whole life.

<span style="font-family:Times">Bless the Beast has a shampoo for dry skin, I think its called soothing shampoo or nourishing shampoo...I've never tried those particular ones but I have tried the detangling version and I'm very happy with it so I'm thinking the nourishing version or soothing version might work just as well too.</span>
