I have toy Australian Shepherd who's coat gets a bit oily. The shampoo I use is orange base, which helps with fleas, totally terminates fleas. It staves off the oiliness for at least a month. It's called Le Pooch F&T Degreaser. It's spendy, but worth it. You mix one part with 2 parts parts water- so it goes a little further. I'd buy 2 or 3 bottles at one time to save on shipping.

I think greasy coat is related to the food dogs eat. I have a terrier-mix and we used to give him grocery store food, then we switched to Natural Balance Ultra. The difference in his coat is like night and day – he really looks great and it seems like he is happier on this food. Dogs are what they eat, just like people.

My new puppy was 9wks old. She had a terrible odor even right after I had bathed her. I took her to the vet & she had ear mites. He treated her with one treatment, I bathed her the next day & no more odor. While , I was at the vet a Yorkie was there with oily coat. The vet said it was due to a skin fungus.

I also have a six year old puppy mill survivor Yorkie that has a very greesey coat that gets a terrible odor. I have tried Seborrhea treatment, change in diet and about 10 different shampoos. Nothing helps and no matter how much I search the internet, there is nothing that helps

I also need the name of the shampoo. I have three yorkies but only one with oily skin and a bad smell. The article mentioned shampoo but did not give the name.

My darling little sweetheart also has a really, really oily coat, and it's getting worse. I was finally told that it was food allergies, so I am trying to get her on some new food, but she was never this oily. Her personality hasn't changed and she seems fine, but now I'm wondering if I should take her to the Vets.

Can someone send the name of that oily hair shampoo, so that I can try that on
