    I recently purchased this product to bathe my 60 pound Shepherd mix. (I had read over thirty 4-5 star reviews.) He is an older dog and has been chewing and biting a lot. This shampoo started soothing his itching right away. I combined it with the Unscented Oatmeal & Aloe Conditioner. He felt so good, he was literally smiling throughout the entire bath. He isn’t chewing and biting anymore and his coat feels wonderful. You can tell how much better he feels after his bath. I LOVE this product and am telling everyone I know how great it is. Thank you Earthbath for such wonderful products.

    I’m confused??? Everything I have read online states that Tea Tree Oil is incredibly harmful to pets especially cats!

      Thank you for your question. Tea tree oil is an effective, natural treatment for hot spots when diluted and applied properly. If you have any questions or concerns about whether tea tree oil is appropriate for your pet, please be sure to ask your veterinarian.

    I was recommended this product by my local store to bathe my cat and dog who have developed skin iritations in the wet weather here. My dog became lethargic, and my cat started to throw up. I called my vet and found out that Tea Tree oil is TOXIC to cats and dogs. I had to rewash them with Dawn soap twice each to get the residue off of this and take them both to the vet to make sure they were okay and keep them under observation for 3 days…. expensive for two animals. I would NOT recomment this product. It does not detail the amount of tea tree oil and from what my vet says they can only endure .01% to be on the safe side. I will just stay away from products with tea tree oil from now on.

      We’re so sorry to hear your pets had an adverse reaction to this product. Tea tree oil is a wonderful natural treatment for hot spots, and we have formulated our shampoo with less than 1% tea tree oil, which is the level determined safe for pets. Unfortunately, as with humans, individual pets are occasionally allergic or sensitive to specific ingredients in products that do not pose any problems for the general population.

    I recently purchased this for my hound/pitt mix who has terrible food and grass allergies hoping it would soothe her skin and instead she broke out with hives and the worse skin irritation ever! I’ve had her on steroids and benedryl with nothing working to help soothe her! Maybe it’s the tea tree oil? I believe in this companies products but this one is not for her.

    I read 40 reviews on another website regarding this product. I have a 97lb shephard/lab mix that is always scratching and chewing. Also his skin flakes where it gets so dry. All the reviews were 5 stars so I thought I would buy some and try it. It made a huge difference with him. Now I am looking to purchase the gallon size so that I will always have some since I have two large dogs that I will be bathing in this shampoo for now on. Love the product and will recommend it to everyone!!

    My dog has a wicked flea allergy, when I first found him he was missing most of the hair on the back half of his body and it looked like a lot of his fur wouldn’t grow back on his hips and the backs of his thighs. It took prescription steroid pills AND spray as well as twice weekly medicated baths to get the itching and inflammation under control. Once the inflammation went down I started using this shampoo before the medicated shampoo during the same bath then eventually completely replaced the medicated after talking to my vet. My dog has been doing so well on this! His coat looks great, he’s grown all of his fur back save for two tiny calluses on either side of the base of his tail, and the smell of the shampoo is nice too. He doesn’t smell like fruit salad like a lot of other shampoos do, or like detergent, and the scent isn’t too strong, nor does it linger. Best of all I’ve gotten him down to maintenance baths once or twice a month (I have the luxury of bringing him to the kennel I work at so I could do it less frequently, but it’s so easy for me to bathe him) in the hot humid climate of the Gulf Coast!

    My poor baby has extreme allergies causing breakouts and fur-loss all over his body, but luckily I found this shampoo to help. I love this shampoo so much that I am recommending it to anyone who will listen. I am even going back to the store to buy even more products from this company now that I found it!

    Used this shampoo on my previous dog who had super sensitive and itchy skin and just started it on my new puppy who had some bug bites. Works so well. So much better than the medicated shampoos I’ve used in the past. I love the way it smells and my puppy is so soft after I bathe her with this. She felt so much better and her itching improved about 90%. She can go on walks now without stopping to itch and can sleep more soundly. I’m not sure why people say tea tree oil is toxic to dogs. Maybe if they eat it? I don’t know, but both of my dogs used this and they didn’t have any weird reaction. Maybe tea tree oil to dogs is like peanut allergies to humans. Some aren’t allergic at all and some are extremely. I don’t think it’s fair that other reviewers warn people not to use it because their dog was allergic. That doesn’t mean my dog will be allergic. Anyways, this will be my shampoo for my puppy going forward.

    I have been using this product on my dog for over a year. Whenever he gets dry or itchy I bathe him and he immediately stops scratching and his skin seems to feel better for weeks. I have had a dry scalp most of my life and found most shampoos dont help. I tried my dogs earthbath and I loved how it seemed to moisturize my scalp and not dry out my hair. Is there any reason I shouldn’t use this shampoo on my own hair? Thanks!

    I’ve been using this tea tree shampoo on my sheltie now for almost two years. When I got him he had problems with dry skin. That’s why I searched for a shampoo I hoped would help with his skin sensitivities. I use both the tea tree shampoo and the oatmeal and aloe conditioner on him for his monthly baths. His skin issues cleared up and have remained under control. We did change his diet too which could have helped, but I know for him the shampoo and conditioner didn’t hurt. I like how he smells during and after his bath. Afterwards his coat is soft and so nice to touch!

    My dog has dealt with dry, flaky, and itchy skin since I picked him up at 6 weeks. I use this shampoo with the Vanilla & Almond Spritz and this is the first time in the past 4 years of having him that his skin isn’t inflamed. He usually has random sores all over and will bite and itch himself 24/7 but since using these products, it’s changed everything! Also happy that the shampoo only has to sit on him for 90 seconds. A tea tree oil shampoo that I used previously wanted it to sit on my dog for 5-10 minutes which he did NOT enjoy. So happy that I found this brand.

    I purchased this shampoo for my 80 lb. Doberman with chronic skin allergies. We’ve tried many other shampoos, sprays and oils. This is the only product we’ve used that I saw instant results! She is scratching a lot less. Her fur is soft and shiny. And her skin is less irritated. I am positive that within a few weeks her hair will begin to grow back. Thanks!

    Love this shampoo! I’ve used it several times on one of my Standard Poodles that has recurring Pyoderma. This shampoo lathers up beautifully, doesn’t irritate my dry hands at all, and rinses out in a hurry as well, saving water and time. My Poodle’s coat dries quickly with a high velocity dryer, and is so easy to brush and comb out afterwards. A definite improvement over other shampoos I have tried on him in the past. I’m off to buy a gallon of this wonderful shampoo! I’m going to use it on my other 2 Standards, maybe try another scent for a change. Great product!
