Method: wash with undiluted SB shampoo and massage it into the skin in the direction of the fur's growth. Rinse and dilute the Revital balm to 50, apply and use a brush to distribute the balm evenly. Make sure it reaches the skin. During the first two washes, both shampoo and balm require 15-20 minutes to work on the skin before rinsing. Subsequent washes require 5-10 minutes..
Repeat this weekly. After the first wash, the condition will improve. However, in the first month between weeks 3 and 4, it is normal for the amount of dandruff falling from the skin to increase dramatically. This is no setback; it is the healthy renovation of the skin cells. Once this peeling has stopped and the skin is healthy again, the dog will need maintenance treatments once a month for the rest of his life with SB Shampoo and Revital balsam. This will keep the peeling under control and the bad smell won't return.ren.
