We first discovered Virbac Epi-Soothe shampoo
when our terrier mix developed red welts on her belly from laying in the grass. A friend with horses loaned us a bottle of the shampoo to try out. Being a bit skeptical that a horse product was appropriate for a dog, I spoke to our vet in New York who raved about the product. That taken care of, we bathed Zadie in Epi-Soothe and immediately saw a reduction in the redness and her discomfort. Apparently this particular year was a bad one for mildews and molds, and by her laying in the grass, she was causing this brutal allergic reaction.
Since that time, we've used nothing but Virbac Epi-Soothe for all of our dogs. We currently have a German Shorthair with a predominately white coat. His belly and legs get very pink-ish and itchy after romping in the grass and brush around our home. He only gets bathed in Epi-Soothe, and instantly the pinkness is reduced and he's less itchy. The product is mildly scented, no perfumey smell at all. It rinses clean in no time. For the best results, we shampoo once and rinse, then lather the dogs up a second time and allow the suds to stay on for up to five minutes and rinse again. This really does the trick, and we are absolutely satisfied with Virbac.
