Clean your pet using pet-safe conditioner! The DERMagic Skin Rescue Conditioner Bar is one of the many scented pet conditioner bars that you can choose from. This bar is lightly scented with Lemongrass and Spearmint to soothe your pet during their bath time! This bar has the added benefit of anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties to help reduce skin injection issues. All DERMagic pet conditioner bars have been specially made to ensure that they have the correct pH balance for your pet, preventing skin and coat damage that occurs when human conditioner is used on pets. Keep your pet clean, their skin healthy, and their coat shiny with this pet conditioner bar!
Wash your pet using a DERMagic shampoo product according to its instructions.
While your pet is still wet, gently stroke the Conditioner Bar directly onto your pet's fur in the direction their hair grows. A light stroke is enough to apply the necessary amount of conditioner. Gently massage the conditioner into your pet's skin and coat. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Do not let the conditioner sit on the skin for an extended period of time.
Try the Grooming Spritz to maintain a fresh, smooth coat between baths!
Don't bathe your pet too often! For healthy pets, we recommend bathing a maximum of twice a month, or whenever they get dirty, whichever is longest between baths.
Note: Always consult with your veterinarian before beginning any skin treatments to ensure that any underlying causes for skin issues have been ruled out.
Never use anything on your pet that is made for people! The difference is people have a different pH for their skin and hair. People are more acidic (pH 1-7) and dogs have a more alkaline skin and coat (pH 7-14). DERMagic liquid and bar shampoos and conditioners are carefully pH-balanced for pets and will not dry or irritate their skin.
Dandruff can be caused by many things. Examples are often as simple as an imbalance in the pH of the skin or from poor quality shampoo. To get rid of it fast, use our DERMagic Dead Sea Anti-Dandruff Salt Scrubs as a wet scrub just prior to bathing. Just wet your dog down and massage a handful or two deeply into the fur. The massage will feel wonderful to your dog and the aromatherapy will calm him even more. Next shampoo and condition your dog with DERMagic liquid or bar shampoo and conditioner and rinse thoroughly. After drying you will notice the dandruff will be gone!
Skin yeast infections in pets are more common in pets with wrinkles, such as Shar-Pei's, but can occur on any breed or pet. It is characterized by oily skin and hairloss in severe cases. To get rid of Yeast Dermatitis, or yeast infections on the skin, use something that has anti-fungal properties since yeast is s a fungus that grows on the surface of the skin. For mild cases, try one of the Skin Rescue products, such as the Skin Rescue Shampoo Bar and Skin Rescue Lotion. For severe cases, try the DERMagic System to help get rid of the yeast infection faster.
Yes, DERMagic products are designed to reduce irritation and itching. Many DERMagic products are specifically designed to reduce dandruff and eliminate excess oils which may cause irritation to your pet. By using various essential oils and other soothing ingredients, DERMagic products can help to reduce itchy skin for many pets.
Yes, DERMagic Skin Rescue Lotion and/or Hot Spot Salve relieve puppy acne. Puppy acne is a secondary reaction to a depressed immune system or bad diet. For this reason, we also recommend an organic raw food diet to get their system straightened out over the long term, while DERMagic gets rid of the "zits" in the short term.
An allergy is a reaction to a specific allergen, such as dirt and pollen. Our products cannot cure an allergy, however the secondary response is itching and scratching, which opens the skin and leads to infection, hot spots, sores, hair loss and potentially mange. We recommend you start off with the DERMagic System to eliminate the itching/scratching cycle before it leads to bigger problems.
Hot spots are described as an inflammation and infection of the skin, sometimes caused by self-trauma such as what happens when a dog scratches or bites at the irritated area. Hot spots can arise from an allergic reaction, from an underlying infection, or just from a dog biting and scratching at an itchy place. Our Skin Rescue Lotion or Hot Spot Salve can be used to eliminate hot spots fast.
Similar to the way you would use a hand lotion or a face cream, you should start with a small amount and add more for broader coverage. There is no right or wrong amount as long as you make sure the entire irritated or infected area is completely covered.
It depends. Some pets may begin to show improvement after a few uses of the DERMagic products, while others may take several months. It all depends on your pet's specific conditon, severity of the condition, and your pet's unique physiology and skin composition. Patience and a regular treatment schedule are key for ensuring that these products can do their job for your pet.
Red, slightly inflammed skin is common within the first few treatments. This occurs from the products working on the cellular level to purge the dead skin and any infections. The body is working with the ingredients in the products to remove the harmful materials, which may appear as red or inflammed skin, flakiness, and even a brownish-tinge to an area. This should clear up with a few more treatments. If the discoloration, inflammation, and flakiness do not improve or your pet seems particularly irritated with the area, consult your veterinarian to ensure they are not having an adverse reaction to the products.
While uncommon, it is possible for your pet to have an adverse reaction to the products. If this occurrs, immediately discontinue use and contact your veterinarian. You may wash your pet with clean water to remove any product that may be on their skin and coat to stop the reaction from progressing.
