Dechra Oatmeal Shampoo Soothes Itchy Skin for Dogs & Cats



Is your furry friend constantly scratching and licking their paws and skin? Do they seem irritated and uncomfortable no matter what you do? Dry, itchy skin is no fun for anyone – especially our pets! That’s why we’ve formulated the Dechra DermAllay Oatmeal Shampoo specifically to soothe and calm itchy, irritated skin on dogs, cats and horses.

Formulated with colloidal oatmeal, this mild, soap-free shampoo will make bath time a breeze for you and your pet. The oatmeal gently cleanses without stripping the coat of essential oils that keep your pet’s skin and fur soft, shiny and healthy. And unlike some oatmeal shampoos that use oatmeal extract, our formula contains actual colloidal oatmeal to provide maximum itch relief and skin protection.

  • Essential fatty acids to nourish the skin barrier
  • Ceramides to moisturize, repair and restore damaged skin
  • Helps reduce urge to lick, scratch and chew problem areas
  • Suitable for dogs, cats and horses of all ages
  • Veterinarian recommended for dry, itchy skin
  • Gentle enough for frequent bathing
  • Made in the USA

Colloidal Oatmeal for Soothing Relief

The key ingredient that makes our oatmeal shampoo so effective is the colloidal oatmeal. This form of oatmeal contains proteins and polysaccharides that help protect, moisturize and restore balance to your pet’s skin when applied topically during bathing. The oatmeal grains bind to the skin, forming a protective barrier while also attracting and trapping moisture.

This helps do several things:

  • Soothe irritation and itching
  • Calm inflammation
  • Moisturize dry, flaky skin
  • Cleanse gently without soap
  • Prevent transepidermal water loss
  • Soften and detangle the coat
  • Neutralize skin pH

The oatmeal also rinses cleanly without leaving behind a residue or film, making grooming easier. Your pet’s coat will be clean, soft and manageable after bathing without the dryness and irritation that comes from harsh soaps or detergents.

Essential Fatty Acids Nourish Skin

In addition to colloidal oatmeal, our Dechra DermAllay Oatmeal Shampoo also contains essential fatty acids from safflower oil. These oils mimic the natural lipids in your pet’s skin to help reinforce and nourish the skin’s delicate barrier. A healthy skin barrier prevents moisture loss while also protecting against microbes, allergens and other irritants.

When your pet has dry, itchy skin the skin barrier is often compromised. The essential fatty acids in our formula supplement the lipids that may be lacking to help moisturize, soothe and restore this protective layer. This helps reduce water loss that can lead to dryness and damage.

Ceramides Repair Damaged Skin

Ceramides are another key ingredient in our oatmeal shampoo formula. These lipids are found naturally in the skin’s barrier layer, helping lock in moisture and maintain structural integrity. Harsh shampoos, detergents, environmental factors and skin conditions can disrupt ceramide levels leading to a damaged barrier.

Supplementing them topically helps replenish what’s been lost to moisturize, repair and restore your pet’s skin. The ceramides in our Dechra DermAllay Oatmeal Shampoo penetrate deeply to restructure the skin’s natural barrier from within. This provides both immediate and long-lasting relief and protection.

Light, Pleasant Scent Your Pet Will Enjoy

We know too many strong fragrances and perfumes can further irritate sensitive skin. That’s why our oatmeal shampoo has a light, pleasant apple fragrance your pet will enjoy during bath time. It’s mild enough not to cause irritation but leaves their coat fresh smelling without heavy perfumes.

You’ll also love how our rich, creamy lather rinses cleanly without heavy residue or buildup even with frequent bathing. The soap-free formula won’t strip the natural oils from your pet’s skin and coat like harsh detergents.

Directions for Best Results

For best results, follow these directions when bathing your pet with our Dechra DermAllay Oatmeal Shampoo:

  • Wet coat thoroughly with warm water
  • Apply enough shampoo to work up a good lather
  • Gently massage shampoo into entire coat including the skin
  • Allow to soak for 5-10 minutes before rinsing
  • Rinse thoroughly until water runs clear
  • For extra itch relief, follow with Dechra DermAllay Oatmeal Conditioner
  • Use weekly or as often as needed

The soak time allows the colloidal oatmeal, essential fatty acids and ceramides to thoroughly penetrate the skin and coat to nourish, moisturize and soothe your pet’s dry, itchy skin. Regular bathing provides ongoing relief and protection.
