People who have dogs with a skin condition know that it’s a top priority to clear up the skin as quickly as possible. Pustules, inflamed skin, and skin raw from itching is not only uncomfortable for your dog, it also looks and smells terrible, and can promote infections.
I’m on my second set of dogs . . . before my current dogs, Schnauzers and a Poodle, I had two Schnauzers, one of which had awful skin. He was a rescue, and when I brought him home his skin was sloughing off, he had very little fur, his sides were bloody from scratching, and he had open wounds in his “armpits” and on his belly. I tried everything to clear up his skin, including tar and sulfur shampoos (which smelled horrible) and homemade skin creams I bought on the Internet. It took six months until his skin cleared up enough for some of his fur to grow back.
What I would have done for Splash Shampoo from TopVET! There was nothing on the market like Splash Shampoo back then. Now, many skin issues in dogs can be cleared up by simply bathing the dog with this product.
What’s so different about Splash Shampoos? Splash was clinically tested by veterinary dermatologists to help treat skin conditions in dogs, and it’s also moisturizing for the coat and skin, as well as being a great cleanser, eliminating dirt and fungus.
I have three tests when it comes to shampoos: the smell test, the lather test, and the doggy odor test.
Both Splash and Splash Plus pass the smell test with flying colors. Splash, the version in the blue label bottle, has no odor whatsoever. You have you really get your nose inside the bottle to smell anything. Splash Plus, in the orange label bottle, smells slightly antiseptic, which to me equals clean.
My dogs aren’t a fan of the B-A-T-H, and no shampoo is going to make it any more pleasant for them, but it stands to reason that a shampoo’s scent can play a part in “bathing comfort,” given that dogs’ noses are much more sensitive than ours. A strongly scented medicated shampoo has got to be more unpleasant to the dogs than one that’s neutral in odor.
Also, I’m incredibly chemically sensitive, and it matters to me how I react to anything I’m putting onto my dogs, since I’m the one applying the product and snuggling them all day. I appreciate that Splash didn’t use a heavy hand in scenting their shampoos.
Splash was also a winner in the lather test. There has been a trend in the last few years with shampoos and soaps that don’t lather. I don’t know about you, but I like lather—it makes me feel as if I’m getting the dogs clean.
All in all, I really like this product and intend to continue using it. I’m giving Splash Shampoos from TopVET a huge paw’s up!
