K9 Klear Up...Wow!

A couple of weeks ago, a nice man sent us a sample of his product to try and also to review it...I was quite excited, naturally! I got to sample new doggie stuff...*grins*

The sample that came in the's an all-natural, organic balm for pets called K9 Klear Up! It says here that it helps to clear up the 17 most common canine skin and coat! I don't know about the other doggies out there, but I tend to get skin itchies and rashes on and off...this product could definitely help me from itching and scratching! *grins*

Some of the conditions that K9 Klear Up helps with include (for the complete list, visit their website here):
  • Hot spots and chronic skin rashes (I get these quite a few times myself...oh, the itching!)
  • Cuts and scratches (perfect for me and my scratching and getting into scrapes most of the time!)
  • Bug bites (With the tick season in full swing this time around, it's getting on my nerves and skin too)
  • Dry, itchy, flaky skin
  • Skin allergies (ie Eczema)
  • Fungi
  • General pad wear and tear
  • Overall itching and scratching

Now, the thing about products that are labeled as 'natural' or 'organic' sometimes is that they also include other chemical ingredients like preservatives or color or smell. But what Mom loved about K9 Klear Up is that, it only contains three ingredients! How cool is that?
  • Shea butter - It's the base for K9 Klear Up. Mom uses shea butter products too, and she loves that shea butter moisturizes skin very well!
  • Tepezcohuite - pronounced 'Tep-Ez-Co-Heety', it's the active ingredient in K9 Klear Up, working to help build new skin and a healthy coat after injury
  • Vegetable emulsifier - The ingredient that 'smooths out' the shea butter/Tepezcohuite mixture, making K9 Klear Up a breeze to apply. Mom said she can vouch for this as well, coz some creams are just too runny or too hard to apply, but K9 Klear Up is easy to apply, and is not oily after application too...*grins*

Moi with the sample...*wink*

Now, after all the talk about the product and the ingredients, how did it fare with me and my skin itchies? I don't know if it's coincidence or not, but after the sample arrived in the mail, I wound up with a whole lot of bumps and rashes that itched me to no end! Usually, Mom would just apply the creams and ointments that she got from the vet to ease the itching, but she tried K9 Klear Up on me that day...

I have to say though that Mom has been 'cheating' a little...*wink* The instructions said to apply the balm to the problem area 3 - 5 times daily, and the problems would be resolved in about 7 days. *whispers* She only put it on me once a day, since she's at work early in the morning...she puts it on in the evening when she gets back. So, we assumed that since the frequency is not so high, the results will only show after 7 days...well, not exactly!

This was the inside of my thigh taken on 1st July...notice the little cuts and red spots?

This was taken yesterday (Doofus Mom forgot to take photos of it earlier...>.<") The cuts have completely healed and the rashes have been cleared too..*grins* The cuts have actually healed about 2-3 days of application, but the rashes took a little longer...usually, it takes more than 2 weeks of application before any results were seen with the vet's creams, so Mom was really satisfied with the results we got with K9 Klear Up!

My other problem area (taken 1st July)...ick! Itchy red bumps! Mom figured it could be tick bites as I always get angry red bumps like these from ticks, and since the tick season is in right now, I get these...>.<"

This was taken yesterday too...the nasty red bumps have resided! Whoo! And I don't scratch as much as I used to too...*grins*

So, my verdict? TWO PAWS OUT for K9 Klear Up! *grins* Mom is really impressed with the way things turned out for me, so she will be ordering a jar too! This will surely come in handy when I get the itchies...=) If you have skin itchies or rashes like I do, do give it a try...we highly recommend it! You can order your jar of K9 Klear Up here!

P/S: Really sorry that I haven't been commenting on your blogs...I've been reading but haven't been able to comment (Mom's being a doofus again...I need new hands to help me type, I think!) Hope to catch up with you all real soon!

Glad to hear you are itchies!

Pedro said...


That's pretty interesting. I get very itchy when I get bitten by a flea. Just one flea can drive me crazy. I get itchy in the winter too from dry skin. I hate being itchy!


Moco said...

The crazy old bat got some of that K9 Klearup for Dawson to see if it would help him stop licking his paws. He got his first treatment yesterday. We will continue to use it and see if it helps him.

We're glad you had such good results with the product.

JD and Max said...

Hi cute Scottie! We're so glad you found the product soothing - we wonder if we can get it in the UK as some of our friends over here suffer from 'scratchy skin' in the summer months so it would be nice to be able to treat them to some of this. You make a great tester - very thorough and scientific..! Tail wags - JD and Max.

Waouw....but I don't think I will find this in Switzerland. But I will check...
Kisses, Faya

Heya! So glad you're feeling better.

You can also try black tea - steeped in a tea bag and when cooled to warm (not hot) pressed onto your bites, rashes and worn pads. Tepezcohuite has high levels of tannins which is what helps with those things. So does simple black tea! Tannins are antimicrobial, antibacterial, and help toughen the skin and reduce inflammation (use externally only). And it doesn't cost a lot of cheese money either!

So glad you like the product and your itchies are gone!

Hi, Scottie!

Itches are not fun!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Scottie,
Wow I do get those itchy red spots and normally scratch like crazzzy.. it's more like a seasonal thingy and more prominent when the weather is hot, like now. Maybe I need to ask mom to check out this product.. I hope they can send overseas...
Thanks for sharing!

Petra said...

Thanks for sharing that information! The pictures are convincing; that stuff works. Right now I am taking a steroid for a rash and itch that I have, so we're going to check this product out.

the 4 Bs said...

hi Scottie, that sounds like good stuff. that person contacted us too, to send us a free sample, but we didn't get it. now we think we should. Brody gets itchies too.


Dewey Dewster said...

Hi, Scottie -

We are glad the itchies are going away. Kaci gets bumps like that but they are not tick bites. She has been to the vet in CT and in NH. My (Hershey's) vet thinks that Kaci has a really bad case of exzema (sp?). Bosco (Hershey's older sister) had gotten a really bad case of acne when she was two years old. She had some exzema as well.

Hooray for the medicine!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. I don't seem to have the skin problems.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Sorry to hear that you have been uncomfortably itchy and had a bad rash. I am glad you are feeling relief from that great product your mom found. Hopefully it will be all gone in just a couple more days! :)

I wanted to thank you for sending well wishes to my mom when she was in the hospital, She is home now and doing MUCH better so we will be back to visiting your blog more regularly.

Fenway said...

Wow...I am super impressed you got to be a certified product tester, Scottie! I will have Ms. Alpha file away that info on K9 Klear Up.

I am glad your skin is a beautiful and clear as a puppy's!

Stay cool,
