“This stuff works miracles. No more red chewing spots on my Jack Russell." ~Terri Braud


COAT DEFENSE® Canine & Cats daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER is effective for itch, odor, and yeast because it alters the terrain on the skin. It creates a dry, safe environment that makes it uninhabitable for pests (pathogenic microbes, fleas, mites) to take up residence on your pet. It is not a medication. Many pets find relief within 1-3 days. For those on antibiotics and/or steroids, or have otherwise been immune compromised, results and healing may take 1-2 weeks.

NOTICE:  For best results, discontinue use of shampoos containing SODIUM LAUREL SULFATE, CHLORAHEXIDINE, COAL TAR, and SALYCILIC ACID. If using medicated shampoos with these ingredients, we recommend waiting 3 days to apply our powder.  These chemicals are known skin allergens and remove the protective oils and microbiome that are essential for skin wellness and required by the immune system to provide true healing.

  • As a Dry Shampoo  and natural deodorant for Stinky Dogs and Cats.
  • As a soothing skin aid for pets suffering from itchy/angry skin.
  • As a natural remedy for yeast infections.
  • As a drying and deodorizing human body and foot powder.
  • Using your hand or a gentle grooming brush, work powder down to the skin.
  • Reapply daily to dissipate odor or prevent skin issues caused by pests that find your dog a perfect petri dish to inhabit.
  • If using as a remedy, leave on continuously, applying more as needed until completely healed.
  • Apply more often to areas prone to holding moisture like between paws, under legs, around genitals, and ears.
  • NOTE: If skin is broken or has scabs, use the COAT DEFENSE® Canine & Cat TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE.

Tips for the Tricky Parts:

  • Paws – Sprinkle powder into a sock and place the sock over the paw. Massage powder into all areas, especially between toes as these microbes love dark moist areas.
  • Ears– To expose the infected area and prevent powder from entering the ear canal, flip the ear back, and apply using a finger making sure to cover the whole surface. Leave on. Reapply as needed until itching and odor are completely gone.

Proprietary blend of sodium bicarbonate, maranta arundina-cea (arrowroot) powder, bentonite clay, zea mays (corn starch), organic cedarwood oil.

Our products are non-toxic, crafted from only safe, readable ingredients, and contain no fillers. COAT DEFENSE® is proudly handmade in Ashburn, VA.

    I have a Show Golden Retriever. After about 2 years of showing him, he started chewing his tail. By chewing he would chew every hair off to the point you could see little small red spots from the follicles where he pulled the hair out. So I stopped showing him. Who would show a Golden with no tail hair? A few months ago my girlfriend told me about Coat Defense. I have tried so many products and nothing worked. But I trust her. Ordered your product that day. It WORKS!!!! Now my Golden’s hair is growing back on his tail. It is amazing. He looks like a real Golden. Thank you so much for a GREAT product.

    Darlene- That is AWESOME and thank you for sharing! Any chance that you have any before and after photos? Or a picture of your champ that we could share? Golden's are the best, like having your favorite teddy in the form of a dog! Thanks! Traci Coat Defense

    Helps a lot

    My Irish Wolfhound has been a seasonal scratcher and biter his whole life. We have used chlorhexadine shampoo and Apoquel. I started using clean shampoo and coat defense it helps more than any other product I have tried. He loves his "sprinkles" and we can keep him off Apoquel.

    3 dogs ended all itching, chewing, scratching in all three. Also stopped dandruff in big lab. Fleas don’t like either and no more winter stink dogs! Highly recommend.

    Love this stuff!

    I have 4 dogs and a cat. I have been using this product for flea control for the last year. I have only used an actual flea product from the vet once in a year and just for 1 of the dogs. In general I liberally apply this to my dogs fur once a week or so in the warm months, once a month in the winter. I apply it to their bedding as often as daily during the summer months, every other week in the winter. It is also great for deodorizing.

    Hi Alexandra Thank you so much for sharing! Your pups are beautiful!! We especially appreciate you sharing how to use for flea prevention.

    My itchy dog loves it!

    Every winter my German Shepherd suffers. Skin heats up, he itches and licks to form hot spots. So far this winter no hot spots! A simple solution to a big problem and I never thought it would work! Now if I delay, he starts moaning to tell me to put it on!!!
