Apply to a wet coat. It is best to prime the pet by bathing/cleansing in DermaPetr Conditioning Shampoo. Then rub DERMALLAYT Shampoo into skin and/or coat until lightly lathered. Wait 5 to 10 minutes and rinse well. Use as often as necessary or as directed by veterinarian. To help restore natural skin oils and revitalize dry, irritated skin, use DermaPetr DermAllayT Conditioner after bathing and between baths.
