  • Q:

    Is there an equivalent where we won't have to get a prescription from a vet? We are on a very fixed budget as we are senior citizens, but love our pets very much.
    Asked on 6/29/2014 by DixieLou from Allen, TX, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      There are several shampoos that contains benzoyl peroxide, which is the active ingredient in Pyoben, however, there may be a reason that your pet’s veterinarian is recommending one shampoo over another and we always recommend following the veterinarian’s advice, to ensure your pets are getting the appropriate care.

      Thank you,

Comments about Virbac Pyoben:

My two cocker spaniels have always had skin conditions. I need to bathe them twice a week just to stay on top of their condition, I've been using this product for 1 1/2 years on both of my cockers, it does a beautiful job. Tried many other products, nothing comes close to solving the problem.

  • How would you rate the quality of this product?:
