[New Product] Help Treat your Pet’s Seborrhea

What is Seborrhea?

Canine and feline Seborrhea is a skin condition that can either be inherited (primary) or occur as a result of another medical issue (secondary), both of which can be treated with cleansers like DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo. While relatively rare in both cats and dogs, primary seborrhea is common in Persian and Himalayan cats. Dog breeds that are most commonly known for suffering from Canine Seborrhea are Shar-Peis, West Highland, White Terriers (Westies), Doberman Pinschers, American Cocker Spaniels, German Shepherds, English Springer Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, Labrador Retrievers, Irish Setters,  and Dachshunds.

Secondary seborrheic dermatitis is more commonly a result of other medical conditions, like:

  • Allergies
  • Fleas and ticks
  • Infection
  • Scabies
  • Mange
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Endocrine disorders (Cushing’s and thyroid disease)
  • Dietary deficiencies (poor diet/obesity)
  • Malabsorption disorders
  • Fungal infection (especially yeast skin infections)
  • Bacterial infection
  • Environmental factors (changes in temperature or humidity)
  • Poor grooming
  • Cancer (especially cutaneous lymphoma)


Does my pet have a seborrheic skin condition?

Your pet may be suffering from seborrhea dermatitis if you notice they have dry, flaky skin (dandruff), greasy skin and hair that usually emits a foul smell, inflamed skin, and scratching. If your pet scratches the affected areas too much, it may lead to bleeding, crusting, or hair loss.

If you notice any of these symptoms, take your pet in to see your veterinarian. If it’s a secondary condition, you may be able to rid your pet of seborrhea altogether by taking care of the medical condition that is causing it. If it’s primary seborrhea, you can manage the symptoms with shampoos and sprays.

Relieve your pet’s seborrheic symptoms with DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo

DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo is a soap-free formulated shampoo meant to treat symptoms of all types of seborrhea skin conditions in dogs and cats. It cleans greasy, dry, flaky, and scaly skin while moisturizing and soothing the skin.

The main ingredient, phytosphingosine, contains moisturizing and soothing agents that help restore the skin barrier, which aids in bringing the skin back to normal. DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo also helps the skin maintain normal bacterial and yeast flora.

DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo is an over-the-counter product, available in a 16.9 oz bottle. It can also be used alongside DOUXO Seborrhea Micro-Emulsion Spray. Talk to your vet and see if DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo is right for your dog.

    Although my dog is mainly inside the majority of the day, Florida’s weather and environment are rough on any dog’s skin. I have used many products to keep my pup’s skin healthy. I would love to try this product! Looking for a magic shampoo!

  2. I think my 2 cats are suffering from this. They are indoor cats and scratching and licking themselves constantly.

  3. My dog is 50% German shepherd and 50% saint Bernard. She’s about 2 years old and has been struggling with this condition. She lost the back end fur on half her body. She itches non stop. I switched her diet, I added fish oil treats, I tried other shampoos that claimed they would fix the problem. They have stopped it from getting worse, but are not curing my poor girls problems. I would love to win this to see if it could permenetly cure my fur daughter.

  4. My two dogs have severe allergies resulting in itchy, flaky skin. I’ve tried many products with minimal results.

  5. My dog has had seborrhic dandruff in the past. I have it myself.

  12. My English springer spaniel Winston would love to try this. His dry skin has been an ongoing problem. Thanks

  13. My chihuahua is 7 months, he scratches often and chews his paws. I tried herbal shampoo and oatmeal shampoo and so far nothing.
    Vet haven’t said anything.

  14. My dog has real dry skin. Between licking and scratching he is always doing something!

  15. Would love to try this shampoo for my Labrador retriever. He is so itchy and is missing some hair.

  16. My JRT scratches and bites her feet a lot. I have tried a tea tree oil shampoo and cannot tell much of a difference. I would love to see if this shampoo would help.

  17. You did not mention Chinese crested but your description perfectly matches what is going on with mine . Greasy, dry, and smelly with CONSTANT licking and scratching . Last week I bathed him with my vet recommended BPO-3 shampoo that actually seemed to make him go crazy. He ran around like he had seen a ghost and was trying to get away. I finally figured out his skin was on fire from the shampoo and got him calmed down enough to rinse him off with water..,,,
    I would love to try your product to see if finally it would make his skin feel better and make this poor guy more comfortable.

  18. My babies are always scratching and vet said it is due to allergies. This could be the extra help they needed!

  23. This would be good for my Molly. She’s a yellow lab that just turned 2. I live in the woods. All of a sudden flea issues. She had a Seresto collar on too. I am at a loss. I have gave her a Capstar. Got rid of all the fleas. Now I am dealing with where the flea dirt was. Itchy flaky sore spots on her. I would love to win this for her as it would be a big help as I am a senior on a fixed income. Either way, I will take care of her. Winning this would sure help for her.
