This is the second use of the Medicated Antibacterial Shampoo by Nootie on Essy. Essy struggles with bacterial dermatitis from time to time so this shampoo will help keep it at bay. The shampoo is a thick consistency so it stays on the fur and quickly lathers. After the first bath with this shampoo I noticed her fur was very soft and shiny, I thought it might be dry looking since it is required to stay on the fur for 10 minutes, I was pleasantly surprised. Her fur was easily manageable and the fur had a nice smell to it. I am very pleased with the outcome on Essy. I received this item at a discounted price for an honest and unbiased review, all opinions are 100% my own.
