I feel very fortunate that my fluffs do not have food allergies or skin problems.   Guess I should not say this too loudly .  Thanks Lin for explaining how you use the CBM.  May try this the next time I bath -especially Noah- he has soooooo much hair.

I tried giving Kallie the Benadryl hidden in a piece of cheese...........well I guess I didn't hide it too well, it ended up on the floor and I  got a look that said "What are you trying to put over on me!" I guess I'll have to think of something else!



Missy's loves the Children's Liquid Benadryl Cherry flavor.  She will lick it right off the spoon.  You might want to try that rather than the pills.

I use cream cheese to put the pills in- I make 2 little balls, 1 with the pill, the other just plain. I give the pill first, then the 2nd roll quickly and they never know they took a pill.

How long would a 4oz bottle of cowboy magic detangle and shine usually last for those that have it? And for those in Europe where do you buy if online? Thanks Smiley

My first one lasted about 4 years so I know it seems expensive ,but it isn't in the long run.I've bought it from a horse supplier ,its meant for their manes and tails,and also Amazon.I'm in the UK.

Its is amazing stuff.I never have had to cut out a knot using it and Abby has quite long hair sometimes and loves running through bushes.Its her tail and sometimes her feet I use it on mainly.Alison

It is hard to say how long the Cowboy Magic lasts, but it does go far. I have only bought 2 tubes so far and I have been using it for at least 3 years on 2 fluffs. I buy mine at a local Equine Tack Shop, as Alison mentioned it was designed to be used on horses.  thumbsup

I currently use Viva La Dog Spa White Coat concentrated shampoo. I dilute it in an old shampoo bottle and use that to squirt it over Daisy's wet coat in the bath. I've only used it a few times, but I like the results. Her apricot spots look lighter and her coat feels better all the time. It's not very foamy, but it seems to rinse quickly and cleanly. I also have Perfect Coat Hypoallergenic Conditioner that is easy-rinse to take care of any leftover residue. Daisy's coat is sometimes very dry, especially on her darker hairs, so I have sprays and creams to help condition. My favorite right now is Pet Head's High Maintenance Leave-In Conditioner in the pink tube. It smells like strawberry yogurt and is lovely to rub on. I also use it on my hair. I have their blueberry muffin Spray Shampoo too and so far, so good. Daisy doesn't like getting brushed or bathed, so we are still trying things. I really want to get a no-rinse foaming shampoo for her face and a few products by Warren London - like the Sani-Scrub and Hydrating Butter [plus Critter Color and Pawlish would be so much fun!]. 
She has not been to a groomer since we adopted her this summer, but I'm super-excited to see what she will look like all professionally trimmed and fluffed.  fluff

This is what I've been using on Loki, its Tropiclean Oxymed Hypo Allergenic Oatmeal Shampoo and the spray is an immediate relief anti itch, which you spray on and rub in, they both smell jice....Loki was really itchy when we got her, so much so that she used to cry when she itched and she had lots of little tiny scabs where she'd been itching....she is so much better now and I've noticed even better since a change of food, she was on a special bland diet from the vet mixed with chicken and rice, she is now on Lilys Kitchen Grain Free puppy food. Even the treats I give her now are Lilys Kitchen.....if you read Eddels grading system of the food, it is extremely helpful.....I've included a picture of the shampoo and anti itch,  it really is vrry good for Loki, we don't have to use the spray anymore either, but remember, as I have found, they are just like us, what works for one won't necessarily work for another, I have spent a fortune trying to get it right for Loki and no doubt it will change

 Thank You  Audra

I just placed an order on Amazon for the Tropiclean hypo allergenic shampoo and the medicated rinse.  It's a really good price today and on Prime so free shipping.  It's about half price of the Earthbath shampoo that I currently buy and seems to have the same ingredients so it's worth a try.

I have a cabinet full of various shampoos and rinses for Missy.   Rolled Eyes  I don't like the sprays for her since I have had no luck in getting them through her fur to really get to the skin and unless it is a hotspot which I can treat, it's hard for me to pinpoint a spray for general itchiness.  Missy does have grass and weed allergies which are just impossible to avoid.

Awe, you are very welcome Susan, I hope it works as well for Missy as it has for Loki. I'm glad to have been able to help.....I didn't know there was a rinse though, I will have to get that as well.....I wanted something good to wash Loki, as I got told off by the vet for washing her too much!!! But she's always dirty!!! Lol....I have cut back on bathing her as of course the last thing I wanted was to be the one responsible for making her skin sore....however I will not be listening to my vet for her advice of bathing....she said once every 2 months was sufficient!!!!!  OMG She would be filthy!!!  It was reading this forum that I got my information, and started looking for an oatmeal shampoo, and now I do what most of you do, which is bath her every 2 weeks....although I have been dunking her paws, and I have wipes for her bottom and back legs  nodding x

Missy gets a weekly bath and has for over nine years.  Since she is allergic to pollen, it helps to get it off of her though she always wears clothing outside to minimize her exposure.  We also use wipes whenever she comes back indoors.
