Some More Great Feedback on Aqueos Dog Shampoo
We have an elderly (15) Poodle cross (Collie) who has become very itchy over the last few years. We have tried adjusting his diet with no avail, even the sensitive skin products made no difference. We took him to the vet who put him on antihistamines over the summer but to be honest they made little if no difference. When we took him to have his hair cut the lady we use told us this is quite common in older age and some Poodle type dogs seem to be more susceptible.
She gave us a check list to go through which was very comprehensive, we did everything on it from de-fleaing the house (we had none but did it anyway), new bed for him, new on road walking keeping him away from grass and pollen. We did this as an elimination exercise but nothing made any difference.
In desperation we tried this shampoo and it has really made a difference in a couple of weeks. It has not cured the problem but it is greatly reduced and I think with time this will control it. Luckily he loves having a bath.
Talking to our vet he thinks it's just old age as nothing from all the tests he has had indicates otherwise. He still leads a full life and this has really been the only vet problem we have had with him. This is also much cheaper than the prescription shampoo (Malesabb) and works well when Malesabb did not. Maybe it's just him as Malesabb is supposed to be the best at treating this problem but for now we will stick with Aqueos as it is working.
