I hear my Lady talkin’ a lot ’bout allergies. She has them right bad – always a sneezing and blowing her snout. But, right along with my Lady, my sister and brother have allergies too! While I ain’t seen em blowing their snouts, they sure get itchy skin and ear problems that make em down right miserable WOOF! My Lady says the skin and ears are the number one places dogs exhibit allergy symptoms. When one of us pups gets them nasty allergy symptoms, my Lady turns to Zymox products!
I don’t know what Zymox is, but I hear the word all the time. Every time someone is diggin’ and scratchin’ or shackin’ their head cause their ears are a hurtin’, my Lady says she got to get the Zymox out. So, lemme fetch her to tell ya ’bout it!
Here’s my Lady to tell you more about Zymox Skin and Ear Products
With 8 dogs in my home, there is always one of them with something going on. However, a couple of them have chronic allergy symptoms. Believe you me, I understand the struggle! As one with allergies myself, it is a full-time battle. However, with dogs, symptoms are a little different. Dogs can have contact and airborne allergies just like humans. While we may have itchy watery eyes, sneezing, and runny noses, dogs exhibit allergy symptoms with skin and ear problems. That’s why I turn to Zymox and their LP3 Enzyme System!
Dog Allergies Reflect in Skin Problems & Hotspots!
When it comes to allergies and skin problems, Sallie is the Queen! Sallie is now 14 years old and I have spent my time in the vet’s office with her ugly bald spots and oozing sores only to be told: “it’s allergy related.” That is true! However, once it is so far gone that sores are oozing it has become a full-blown skin infection that requires an antibiotic. Over the years, we have figured out how to nip it in the bud so it doesn’t get that far. ZYMOX IS OUR SECRET WEAPON! With Zymox’s shampoo, condition, creams, and sprays, I can control the itch that causes her to dig and scratch which prevents infections.
Relief for the Skin
While we experience allergy symptoms with itchy watery eyes, sneezing, and runny noses the number one way dogs show allergy symptoms is by exhibiting skin problems. They dig, scratch, and bite at their skin until before long the hair is gone and sores are developing! The very first line of defense is to soothe the itch and protect the skin. Zymox Shampoo and Conditioning Rinse Itch Relief formulas provide quick itch relief and are my go-to products for Sallie!
Zymox Shampoo Itch Relief
When your dog’s skin is itching and they are scratching, their nails can cause breaks in the skin for infectious microbes to enter. Zymox Itch Relief Shampoo provides an effective way to protect their natural skin barrier and calm the itch. It has anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe and calm the itch, without being irritating or drying.
Zymox Shampoo uses only the mildest plant surfactants with no harsh detergents, chemicals or petroleum bi-products. It also smells fabulous! The LP3 Enzyme System, with the addition of Vitamin D3, helps relieve surface irritations and hydrate the skin.

Hot Spot & Skin Infection Relief
Zymox Topical Cream for Hot Spots & Skin Infections
Hot Spots are the number one common skin condition in dogs, and especially those with allergies. Hotspots are itchy, raw, and sometimes bloody patches of skin. Sometimes they can turn into oozy weepy messes! They can also turn from a dime-sized spot to a large area in just a matter of hours! IT IS SCARY! What causes hot spots? Well, there are a variety of reasons hotspots form including bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections.
A good go-to product to calm them down is Zymox Topical Cream, which contains .5% Hydrocortisone. It can be applied once a day as needed. There is no need to pre-clean or scrub the area because the LP3 Enzyme System reacts with the infectious pus and debris to form its antimicrobial properties. Actually, pre-cleaning and cleaning will disrupt the biological system and negatively affect results.
In addition to managing hot spots Zymox Topical Cream is great for wound care and other common skin infections and it is effective on MRSA! It is safe, gentle and non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry if your dog licks the site and gets it in their mouth.
Zymox Topical Cream is Effective Against:
•Pyotraumatic dermatitis hot spots, wet eczema, acute moist pyoderma
•Body fold pyoderma
•Superficial and generalized pyoderma
•Staphyococcus ssp (including MRSA) Pseudomonas ssp.
•Microsporum, Trichopyton, Epidermophyton (ringworm)
•Malassezia pachydermatis, Candida albicans
The second most common way dogs show allergies is with ear infections. In addition to a simple ear infection, it has been noted that 20% of dogs suffer from chronic ear infections. Some dogs are more prone than others, especially dogs with floppy ears. Their ear flops over and there is very little airflow allowing the bad organisms to flourish and grow. A few of the tell-tale signs of ear infections are dirty greasy ears and the infected ear usually has a bad odor. Your dog may be pawing or scratching at the ear and some dogs will hold their ear at an odd angle (our German Shepherd does this). They may be like Ozzy and rub their ear on your lap to let you know it itches and hurts.
Dog Allergies can Present in the Form of Chronic Ear Infections
A few of our dogs have ear infections on and off, however big Ozzy suffers chronic ear infections. He is now 5 years old and has suffered from them all his life. He has those typical floppy Lab ears that harbor moisture, dirt, and bacteria. Since Ozzy was a puppy and the ear infections begun, he has come to me and rubbed his ears on my lap when they start to itch and hurt. He may be a big boy, but he still wants Mom when he feels bad 🙂 I have turned to Zymox to help keep his ears clean to PREVENT the infection before it starts! And, if it needs more help than cleaning provides, Zymox has a solution for that too!
Zymox Ear Cleanser
Keeping your dog’s ear clean is the first line of defense against ear infections. Zymox Ear Cleanser provides an effective, non-toxic way to manage dirty ears. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or cleaners that will irritate sensitive ears and it will leave the ears smelling clean and fresh. Zymox Ear Cleanser has the addition of Lacoperoxidase, Lactoferrin and Lysozyme, which have natural bio-active properties for mild microbe control in addition to gentle cleaning surfactants making it perfect for cleaning dirty ears.
