My boy suffered a back injury in May that has left him paralyzed with no control of his bladder. He gets expressed manually every few hours, but still leaks a little in between so he wears a bellyband w/an incontinence pad.

It works great to save my floors/furniture, but it no matter what he still has a pee odor and some staining on his belly. I wipe him down with baby wipes every time I take him out and/or change him. I have also tried waterless shampoo. Neither really kills the pee smell.

He is a certified therapy dog and we are planning to go visiting once he gets used to his wheelchair and he needs to be clean and well presented. The staining I can deal with (his bellyband covers most of it and if necessary I can always chalk him), but I really can't have him smelling of urine.

Right now the only shampoo I have on hand is whitening/brightening shampoo (he is a former show dog) and I cannot use that frequently because it will damage and dry out his coat/skin. He already has some flaky skin :/. I need something that can be used frequently (like once a week or so) that is strong enough to remove urine order but gentle enough to not dry out his coat.

Any suggestions?

I would recommend EZ Groom Aloe Conditioning Shampoo. Their products are wonderful. You wont have dry skin issues if you rinse thoroughly.
