Relief® Shampoo can help your patients with itchy, irritated skin. It helps break the itch/scratch cycle, offering dogs, cats and horses temporary relief from itching, flaking, inflammation, redness and irritation while cleansing the coat. 

Relief® Shampoo is a soap-free cleansing formulation combining the soothing benefits of pramoxine and colloidal oatmeal with omega-6 fatty acids for nourishment of the skin barrier. Available in 8- and 12-ounce bottles, the shampoo can be used as often as necessary to help your patients find relief.

CAUTIONS: For topical use on animals only. If redness or irritation persists or increases, discontinue use and contact your veterinarian. Avoid contact with eyes. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.

WARNING: Keep out of reach of children.

What are the dosing and frequency guidelines for Relief® Shampoo?

Relief® Shampoo should be shaken well before use and may be used as often as necessary.

What is the recommended contact time for Relief® Shampoo?

Clients should apply a sufficient amount of Relief® Shampoo, lathering well into the pet’s coat; contact with the skin is important. When entire coat is treated, allow lather to remain for five to 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water. 

Should I recommend my clients use a gentle grooming shampoo prior to applying medicated shampoo?

A gentle grooming shampoo is a great option to use before a medicated shampoo. Your client may wish to clean the skin and coat prior to applying the medicated shampoo so the medication will have more contact with clean skin.
