“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.

    This product has been a "coat" saver for my German Shepherd. He has struggled with hot spots and chews his skin until it is raw and bleeding. The powder fights the itch and discomfort and we have not had hot spots in more than 4 months.

    so far so good

    I bought this for my greyhound who does not have hair underneath his neck. This causes collar chafing and irritation due to him scratching. The coat defense powder is acting as a smooth protectant on his skin, and is helping with irritation. I do apply it daily and when needed. I will keep using it for now. I have tried many things.

    Works better than expected

    After 10 days of daily covering of CD our pittie is looking much much much better. She has been suffering from ringworm on again off again for over 2 yrs. Then a vet tech suggested CD and we have just finished 3 shaker bottles and 1/3 of the refill bag Covering her every single day. My only "complaint" is I wish there wasn't so much waste with my son cupping his hands and putting about a tablespoon full into his hands and rubbing her head to toe And tons falls off. But being powdery Its to be expected. We Do plan to purchase more.

    Good stuff!!!

    Mickey was licking his paws constantly. When I started using Coat defense, he had immediate relief. Now I ask if he wants his paws powdered, and he lays down and holds them up for me. So awesome to find something that works right away. Thanks!
