Tastes nasty

I had purchased this for my 3 and a half month old pitbull who had developed food allergy and was constantly scratching himself and biting himself. I was going crazy trying to figure out why he was doing that and causing him to lose all his fur. I tried this and it worked, no problem. Only problem I had was the smell. It stunk really bad for me so I could only imagine what my dog was going through, but he needed it. Aside from the smell, I will say this, after using it and applying it with bare hands, the smell and taste would stick to my hands until, the next day. I would wash my hands over and over but it would still be on me. And be carefull when touching your lips or anywhere your tongue might roam because the taste is nasty. I later found out from one of my neighbors, whose a retired vet, he told me I could of easily just used baby oil. It's basically the same thing. All it is, is a remedy to moisten the skin so it helps stop scratching themselves. If I would have known that then that would have saved me time and money. All in all if you want to use it then go ahead. As I said, it did relieve my pups skin so he would scratch less but make sure to use gloves or something.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

this product works! it relieves the itching and heals the wounds -- quickly. (if it doesn't work within a week, call the vet). You can't beat the price -- though I'd be willing to pay more since it's so reliable!

My 8 y/o English Bulldog has suffered from skin allergies his entire life. I had him tested at 2 and they were "under control" with twice monthly allergy shots. However last summer (09) we moved from NY to MN and they came back with a vengeance due to the difference in vegetation here. He's been miserable ever since things came back to life in the spring.
Like the previous reviewer, the vet put him on antibiotics and prednisone to treat the sores but those are detrimental long term. We're dealing with a Catch-22 here: he can't be tested again while he's on the steroids and he can't be tested if he's having a flare up. This product works well to quickly treat existing sores. Hopefully we can use this to get a window of time where he's sore-free to get him tested. It DOES sting when you apply it so be prepared for some major squirming!
I would recommend this to a friend!

I have a Newfoundland who developed hot spots and terrible skin allergies summer 2009. I was mortified at the thought of not being able to cure her skin problems and she was chewing non-stop and miserable. The vet checked and rechecked and prescribed Prednisone and antibiotics but nothing worked. Sulfodene was the best choice.
It helped get rid of her hot spots and at least left her itchy, greasy, crusty skin easier to manage.
We only recently have been treating it as seborrhea and am also trying Sulfodene shampoo. I really hope it works!
I would recommend this to a friend!
