I needed a good dog conditioner for my dog who has dry skin and coat most the time.
I was surprised that avoderm didn't list ingredients on their product. Why would you buy something without knowing what it is?

I emailed them and they won't give it out. They will tell you if something specific is in it but they won't say what, they will just say "some of the things you listed are"

I want to know what percent is actual good stuff and not just water. So I know what I am paying for.

I understand the whole keeping your recipe a secret or whatever they think they are doing. but can't they just put a patent on it and be like every other product and tell the customers their ingredients?

I really had high hopes for their product but I don't want to use products blindly. and I'm frustrated that they won't even give a paying customer information about the product.

anyway. anybody else been through this at all?
anyone use avoderm's shampoo/conditioner?
anyone to suggest other good dog conditioners? really good stuff. not mostly water.

Liquid shampoos and soaps are most often going to be mostly water because the added water is what helps it become a liquid so unless you make your own it's pretty difficult avoid liquid shampoos and soaps with a lot of added water. But if you really don't want anything with added water try looking for a shampoo/conditioner bar. There are quite a few that are marketed for pets. You may also want to try something made from whole colloidal oatmeal like Rub-a-Dub Oats All Natural Oatmeal Bath Soother. Another good option might be castile soap which is made from olive oil. Good luck!
