    Comments about Doc Ackerman's Herbal Colloidal Oatmeal Shampoo:

    I really hoped that this would help alleviate some of the seasonal itching that my dog has, on the contrary: it made it worse! She began itching like crazy as soon as I started drying her.... VERY disappointed. This is not a good product.

    She started scratching all over just after bathing her with this shampoo. It was the worst $ expend to see my baby suffering that much.

    Comments about Doc Ackerman's Herbal Colloidal Oatmeal Shampoo:

    I really liked how my pet's hair looked after I used. It seemed whiter & fluffier than with other shampoos. The only thing is you can't expect to wiz through shampooing with this. You have to make sure that you take time to apply it over every place where pet may be biting or having issues. You lather it up on the skin. The directions say to use a "generous amount of shampoo". "Take at least 5 to 15 min to thoroughly shampoo your pet". I have only used it once but I notice that my dog doesn't scratch & seem as miserable. I also use Sulfodene skin med it helps with the red spots. I will only use this shampoo frm now on.

    Comments about Doc Ackerman's Herbal Colloidal Oatmeal Shampoo:

    My dog was suffering from allergies and his skin was red, itchy and irritated. This was the best colloidal oatmeal shampoo I found. It soothed his skin and eliminated his itching, and is easy to rinse out. I even bring it to his groomer to use on him. The only down side is that it's so thick you can't really squeeze it out through the cap which is easily remedied by removing it.

      A great shampoo. Lathers nice. Rinses easily. Originally bought because of an itchy dog - but will continue to use. Love the results!

          Unfortunately this product didn't work for my chihuahua with allergic hot spots. I am sure it is a good product, but when I bathed him in it, he had a huge itching flare up. Too bad. I might still try it again with my other chihuahua that doesn't have skin problems.

                Comments about Doc Ackerman's Herbal Colloidal Oatmeal Shampoo:

                I ordered this after seeing all the stellar reviews. My dog, a cocker spaniel, Chewiee, has been itching and scratching due to dry skin, and this product read like the solution to most if not all of Chewiee's woes. It started well...the shampoo itself smelled pleasant and Chewiee seemed to like how it felt when I let it sit for 10 minutes (per instructions). It also rinsed off nicely, and left my dog's fur feeling very soft. Then the scratching began--less than 30 minutes after his bath. He was scratching with even more urgency, and that same afternoon, little white dandruff-like flakes floated to the top of his fur--the shampoo seems to have made his skin even drier. Three days after his bath, our dog was stinky and his fur had that waxy feel. I think the shampoo is TOO mild that it didn't clean his fur/skin. Poor guy...I had such high hopes.

                    As a naturopath, this is the only shampoo I will use on my sensitive, allergy ridden Shih Tzu! There are no "bad" ingredients in this product and I highly recommend it.
