Some may find the vanilla scent a little on the uninventive or subtle side but you might be surprised at just how lovely it is on your pet's coat if you appreciate a smell that isn't overpowering. 

In fact, even if your pooch doesn't have skin problems, you might find yourself reaching for this product thanks its  ease of use and soothing qualities on your pet's skin and coat. 

Earthbath Oatmeal and Aloe Natural Pet Shampoo Vanilla and Almond: User reviews 

Earthbath Oatmeal and Aloe Natural Pet Shampoo is particularly loved by pet owners looking for a soap-free solution free of chemicals.

"Smells lovely, and the fact it doesn’t have soap is of vital importance to me. I don’t want flea and heartworm treatments to be washed away. Very happy with it and will try other scents too," wrote one happy pet owner.

The product is typically lauded for its speed and effectiveness in tackling skin issues in pets.

"My little Yorkie X Chitzu has suffered with allergic dermatitis for the last 3 years and I have tried everything both medicinal and home remedies as she scratches till she bleeds... After the first time using both this and the crème rinse she has just stopped. Her coat is so soft and silky too! I really am so pleased."

Like every product, however, results will vary on a case-by-case basis. If it's not quite working out for your pet then it can continue to be used purely as a cleansing shampoo. 

"Smells lovely when washed.. doesn't last long but I'm happy the ingredients are natural. It's not stopped my dog itching and will continue to use but probably wont repurchase."
