                Comments about Virbac KetoChlor Medicated Shampoo:

                I was extremely pleased with the results I got from our 2 black Labs skin issues. Both dogs were shedding like crazy and itching holes in their fur. We thought it was from moving so ignored it until they got the "creepy crud" on their backs above their tails. This shampoo worked great and they stopped itching and their hair became normal soft and shiny..no more greasy gross untouchable hair!! I did not know if it had good value because the dogs are large and they need to be washed twice and then every other day. We did get more than 16 washing out of the 16oz bottle so i guess that's not bad. The purchase price was cheaper for the 16oz. than the 8oz. from my Vet so that was great value to me!! Service and delivery were great once they received my Vet's prescription..I would definitely order another bottle when I run out.

                  Comments about Virbac KetoChlor Medicated Shampoo:

                  We use this on our 6 year old yorkie. He developed skin allergies around the age of 5. He scratches a lot and his skin can smell sour at times. We switched his food to a super premium grain-free / gluten-free first, and that seemed to help a little but he was still itching a lot. We finally started using this once a week, and he's back to being happy & itch-free. The only difficulties with this shampoo are (1) that it's so mild that there's very little lather to work with and (2) that my dog usually gets pretty chilly while trying to leave the lather on for 5-10 minutes. Neither are deal-breakers, but just be aware that it's not the typical wet, lather, rinse process.
