Continue to use
I previously mentioned that we used Allercalm as a substitute for Pyoderm. We are so happy with the product that it has now become our choice of shampoo. It reduces Leo's itching, smells great and makes his fur soft and silky. (Posted on 25/03/2024)

Great Substitute
Pet Heaven was out of Stock on the Virbac Pyoderm which is what I usually use. I decided to try to variant and to my surprise it works just as well. Keeps the itching and dry skin at bay for Leo. (Posted on 15/01/2024)

Perfect for Sensitive Skin
One of my dogs has very sensitive skin. She gets dandruff and itchy skin from other shampoos. With Allercalm the coat gets superglossy and she has no problems with flaky, itchy skin. It is expensive, but in my view really worth it if your dog is prone to skin issues. (Posted on 05/01/2021)
My poor cat lost fur on tummy because of allergies and this helped a lot, even stopped his dandruff (Posted on 25/10/2020)
