“To identify a suitable shampoo in a shampoo-sensitive dog, perform an open patch test, which involves applying a small amount of diluted shampoo to the dog's abdomen, allowing five minutes of contact time, and rinsing. Then watch the dog carefully for any signs indicating intolerance (e.g. erythema, pruritus).”
