Not your father's dog shampoo

I always say, "Scratch a dog, and you'll find a permanent job." I didn't coin this phrase, but I still like to say it. Scratch a dog, and you'll find a permanent job. There. I said it again. You can't stop me people! Just like you can't stop my excessively itchy skin and incessant scratching. Stew has tried with various medicated shampoos. But I don't really miss the good old days in Robbinsdale when we'd jump in the basement shower to lather up together. It was not enjoyable, although Stew always tried to make me feel comfortable. He'd try to convince me that it's a bonding exercise, and that everything will be alright. While the soft adult contemporary music playing in the background, and lit candles in the corner of the bathroom were a nice touch, they never seemed to calm my fears of being drowned by the steady stream of water relentlessly shooting down upon me from the menacing shower head. Yikes! I still shiver at the thought. But ever since moving into a house with no basement shower, every six weeks or so I get dropped off at some doggy grooming salon (although "canine torture chamber" is a more apt title for the place).

Anyway, there's no rhyme nor reason to my itching. I tend to feel itchy soon after being washed, but I also scratch excessively when it's been too long between baths and my skin is dry and flaky. I can't figure out why my skin itches so much. So once again, my thirst for knowledge took me to the magical land of the Google. What I discovered is that I suffer from a fatty acid deficiency (as opposed to Stew's fatty ass oversufficiency, which is entirely different and something we don't speak of often around the house).

In sniffing out a solution to my problem, my nose lead me to Dinovite. I should have known because this is the same company that created products to help prevent my excessive shedding. Just like their dog treats and pet food supplements, Dinovite's dog shampoo is specially formulated with nutrients and enzymes often lacking from commercial pet foods. DogOsuds is not your ordinary dog shampoo because it's designed to help alleviate problems with itching, excess shedding and odors. In fact, it will remove skunk odor in a single washing! Something to think about for my Alaskan friends who live amongst the critters.

So ask yourself, does my dog itch excessively? Does he smell like he rolled around in a garbage bin, or does he shed enough hair to stuff a pillow? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", then give Dinovite a look see and give your dog a new dog smell!

Dogosuds ® benefits include:
• Makes your dog smell CLEAN and WONDERFUL for a long time.
• Lathers beautifully ... and RINSES EASILY!

• Contains 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils that have natural, healing properties

• Gentle soothing shampoo works well for sensitive skin.


• Lathers beautifully ... and RINSES EASILY!

Sniff out Dinovite and their products for yourself. In the meantime, I hope to soon be napping in the corner... itch-free and smelling of lavender.
