The Schnauzers are common for having skin problem, so without doubt Kannie was one of the allergy sufferers too! During the summer time, he would get something like acne on his back, or blister like kind of scars on his body and that cause itchy-ness and sometimes there is even some kind of stinky smell on him! After visiting the vet for a several time, Karen and I found out a really good dog shampoo product that works like magic on Kannie. Not a single scar, blister or acne-like-bump were found on him during this hot and humid 2008!
The shampoo is called the Efa Hylyt (How to pronounce?). The dog shampoo is mild and could create lather easily. It has a cute coconut smell (tanning oil smell?) but when Kannie is done with the bath, he is completely odor free and will left behind the clean fresh smell!
The Efa Hylyt Products
Here’s from the official Description:
HyLyt Shampoo Soap-free Hypoallergenic Shampoo for Routine Cleansing of Normal, Dry or Sensitive Skin. HyLyt Shampoo a gentle, hypoallergenic, soap-free formulation with optimal pH balance.
Efa HyLyt Shampoo contains emollients for moisturizing and protein for conditioning. Natural Moisturizing Factors in Efa HyLyt Shampoo promote hydration of skin and coat, while essential fatty acids nourish skin and aid in the control of flaking and scaling.
The product is really good and I would like to share it with all dogs lovers out there! One bottle (8oz) is about US$8 and for Kannie, it could last for 3 months while using it on a weekly basis.
