|Just wondering if anyone has had any issues with these products before. I bathed Cali with the shampoo and conditioner last week b/c she's shedding like crazy. About a day or two later, I noticed she had small, crater-like wounds on her back (almost like small, shallow puncture wounds). I thought she had been bit by one of the other dogs. But the area around the 3-4 wounds was very red and inflammed, almost like a burn. It was very painful for her and she did not want me touching it. Each day that went by I noticed 1 or 2 new spots that were starting to scab over. Then today I noticed another 3 spots that were up higher on her back. That's when I realized these weren't bites.
The shampoo and conditioner I used was actually at my job. And I remember our groomer telling me that another employee's dog had a reaction to the products recently. Being that I used it a bunch of times on my dogs (including Cali), I wasn't worried. But now I'm thinking the shampoo or conditioner was a bad batch. I talked with the other employee who's dog had a reaction and she described almost the same thing on her dog's back.
I emailed the company and they are checking into it. They recently changed their formulas to make their products "more natural and gentle". But they said that the gallon formulas (which is what we used) has not changed. I gave them the lot numbers from the products I used and waiting to hear back from them.
Anyone experience something similar?
