“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.

    Comforted my Dachshund AND me!

    One of the toughest things a pet owner goes through is seeing your "fur kid" uncomfortable or hurting. My mini-dachshund developed a rash on her tummy. Dachshunds' stomachs are so close to the ground that they can get a rash from environmental irritants easily. They also LOVE to cuddle both with the owners they love and in warm blankets - even in the summer, so moisture can develop in folds from the prolonged warm skin. When I saw the rash, I started using Coat Defense daily on her stomach and leg folds. I had successfully used Coat Defense on one of my horses, so i was hopeful the jar i got for my dogs would help. Yes - it absolutely did!!! From the moment I first applied it to her pink tummy, it gave her relief. I did take her to the vet to see the rash and he said what i was doing was perfect for it. The rash is just about gone now, and both my dog and I are comfortable again. Thanks, Coat Defense!

    Helps odor and allergy irritation

    My dog feels better after dusting. He has allergic skin issues with hives and scabby bumps and inflammation. The powder does help.

    Preventative powder works!

    Over the years I’ve tried several different products on my 13yr old dog for skin problems and stinky odor with little to no satisfaction. Finally I came across Coat Defense Powder. Though it seemed kinda pricey for me, I decided to try it and it has been worth every penny. Just sprinkle a little on his bed bout twice a week and he lays on it. Good stuff and works.

    Soothes and protects

    I use this powder on my dog, who experiences seasonal itchiness. She is an active dog who gets that “dog smell” when it’s hot out. She loves getting her doggy massage with Coat Defense, which works right away to stop the snell and quell her itching. The refill bag was a great idea! I highly recommend Coat Defense for your dogs!

    Finally, relief!

    I had used Coat Defense last year or so but I forgot about it, dumb. Once I started using the powder, the cream and the shampoo, our girl was showing relief from the seasonal itching! There's nothing worse for pet parents than to feel helpless when your pet is uncomfortable and you can't help them! We will NEVER be out of Coat Defense again!!
