We got this to go along with the shampoo for days on which we are not shampooing. Our dog has a severe skin allergy. The pump dispenses well and the mousse has a great smell (not that the dog appreciates smelling good on people terms). Most important, the mousse is not irritating his skin and seems as effective as the shampoo in keeping his itching under control. The instructions say in general to use one to two pumps, but this is based on weight. A close reading of the instructions indicates that we would need to use 9 pumps for full coverage--which makes the product pricey. So we are just using it on his worst areas to tide him over to his next shampoo (3 shampoos a week).
Has helped tremendously with "itching paws"!
I have been using this product on my dog for approx. 3 weeks. It was recommended by her "dermatologist". I apply it to her paws and it has really helped. She is not chewing on them anymore.
