Coatex Medicated Shampoo for dogs is a quality shampoo suitable for use on common dermatological complaints including flaky/greasy skin, poor coat quality and dermatitis. Using a unique formulation that boasts superb comprehensiveness, Coatex Medicated Shampoo contains all the vital active ingredients for safe and reliable results. Boasting both antibacterial and anti-fungal action, Coatex Medicated Shampoo is very effective at removing scales and crusts but still gentle enough for frequent use.

Please Note: Coatex medicated shampoo is for dogs only.

Coatex Aloe + Oatmeal

Ideal for cats and dogs with sensitive skin, Coatex Aloe and Oatmeal Shampoo uses a traditional formula of natural ingredients to create a soothing and nourishing shampoo that conditions and cleanses. The beneficial properties of Aloe Vera are well documented and include soothing and calming inflamed skin. Suitable for all breeds, Coatex Aloe and Oatmeal Shampoo provides detangling action and is suitable for the removal of puppy scale. Coatex Aloe and Oatmeal Shampoo does not strip the coat or skin of essential oils but gently cleans and refreshes coats and is suitable for weekly use as part of a grooming maintenance regime.


Aqua Sodium C14-16, Olefin Sulphonate, Glycerine Lauramide, DEA Lactic Acid, Fragrance Polyquaternium and 10 Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate.


Shake well before use. Throughly wet your pet's coat with tepid water. Massage small amounts of shampoo into the coat while continuously adding water to achieve better dispersion. Continue until a generous lather is generated. Leave on the coat for five minutes then rinse well. Use shampoo weekly or as directed by your vet. Can be applied after use of a medicated shampoo to improve healing and coat condition.

Coatex Capsules/Liquid Pumps

Many essential nutrients have to be supplemented by diet as the animal itself is incapable of producing them. One such group is known as Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). When dogs or cats are EFA deficient this can cause problems such as dry, scaly or itchy skin resulting in the associated problems. Coatex therefore provides these EFAs.

After spending a fortune on injections and tablets for our GSD, our new vet recommended this shampoo and after one application we could see a difference. Very reasonably priced and quick delivery.

Have an 13 yr old Red Setter with a terrible skin problem, that was getting sore in parts. Vets offered no help. This has had a really good effect on her & she is much more comfortable.

Scabs on back and sides

Mark Beckett

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

My dog has recently come out with scabs along his back and sides .He is on Lily's fishy fish pie with a spoon (5ml) of bionic biotec ,he also suffers from ear infections for the past 5 years that the vets haven't been able to cure we have recently used trizaural along with otomax ear drop suspension and this appears to have worked also started to bath him in Coatex aloe &oatmeal and this seems to work
Can you please help the dog is a 8year old labradoodle

  • VioVet Staff

Coatex might well be good for his skin so I would continue with that. The spots are likely to be a reaction to something or possibly a sign of infection. Your vet should take a look at them if possible. You might find that trying an exclusion diet would help to identify an underlying allergic response to some sort of food item, so it would be worth talking to your vet about that. We sell lots of suitable diets and they can make a huge difference, but it would be best to check with your vet first.
