Hi Lisa,
I pour the SSS bath oil from the big bottle into a spray bottle and I use that on him. If you don't have a spray bottle, I would pour a little in my hand and gently rub it in. It has worked great for me for his dry skin. A huge and noticeable change for my boy.
Mikey, I have heard that they sell a SSS mosquito repellent which I have not tried. I live in Florida and I would not substitute this for any type of pharmaceutical repellent because its always hot here and we have all kinds of bugs all year. It does work as a repellent, but I use it for dry skin and it makes him smell much better Thanks.

Lolol! That is awesome. Riley has his snout burrowed under my pillow in the morning. He likes to sleep with his face covered up. Gotta love them

The frito smell is a result of a yeast infection. If your dog smells like this and is itchy, chances are that's what it is. The hair between the pads will be a reddish color. If that's present, then it's yeast. I battle this constantly with mine. He's allergic to the grass and now having a reaction to the Christmas tree. He's on a single ingredient diet and was doing fine when we went to NC. Within 1 week of coming home here we go again. We do an anti fungal wash on his paws every other day for 15 mins, then gold bond with zinc to keep the, dry. Boots when he goes outside ( which he freakin hates) If anyone has any input I would greatly appreciate it too!

I have had a hound with a yeast infection in the past and I know it was an ordeal. I used Baytril for the infection and switched him to a no grain type of kibble and it finally went away. I am not sure what others use for yeast.

Please send or post a pic of the boots if you can. I would love to get Riley some boots or little shoes. Do you use them as snow boots? I am in Florida, and Riley has a few foot issues.... Tiny acorns get stuck in his pads and those very sharp tiny burrs or spurs or whatever they are called get stuck in his feet and he stops and lifts his feet up so I can pull them out. Poor guy. I know they are painful for him.

Someone told me about bathing itchy bits with Apple Cider Vinegar and it seems to work.
