So you’ve read Part One of our [Case Study]:
How to Save your Dog, and your Family’s Sanity?
The beautiful Shih Tzu, ‘Misty’ from Dural NSW Australia has broken hearts. Moving from red-raw puppy-in-distress to playful-pup, we’ve watched Misty re-energise, and as hair and skin rejuvenation begins, so too returns her puppy mojo.
In Part Two of our Case Study, Misty’s person Jennie shares the next 4 weeks of Misty’s Underwater Dogs journey.
But first, let us recap:
Reflecting on this journey, one thing is most apparent; those first photos of Misty, say it all.
“Misty has had severe skin problems since we got her; 7.5 years ago.
What started out as mild scratching, turned into literally ripping her fur out and causing bleeding.
Our vet says that if she were human, she would need to see the Dermatologist every week. The problem was resolved temporarily by her taking a tablet, which was an antihistamine/steroid mix.
Unfortunately, she got used to it [the explanation at the time] and it stopped having any real impact.
I tried countless shampoos and washes and none of them worked.
It has been an uphill struggle to try and get control of it. Her sleeping; and ours, was affected and her appetite was very poor.”
A friend mentioned a new haircare range called Underwater Dogs; and of-course, I was willing to trying anything.
Sometimes we felt like there was nothing else we could do. We were willing to try anything
Anything to offer Misty some relief.

“Dear Underwater Dogs,
Misty is so happy and contented. Her appetite is amazing (to say the least) and she is sleeping beautifully.
The only set back we encountered was when she ploughed through some tall grass and it irritated her literally immediately.
I gave her an Underwater Dogs bath straight away and was thrilled to see that it calmed her skin down completely.
We seriously had forgotten that she used to stink!
I now bath her once a week and her fur is soft and shiny.
We have also noticed that her skin colour is pale pink and that her fur is growing back in places where she really has not had fur for years…we have also noticed that a little of the Shampoo and Conditioner goes a long way; it lathers beautifully.
Farmers Friend [Bidens pilosa L.] Commonly known as; farmer’s friend, stick-tights, pitch-forks, burr marigold. Densely hairy woody herb that grows on any disturbed or waste ground, roadsides and areas that are dry and infertile.
Interestingly enough for me, Misty has got her ‘puppy days’ back and loves to roll over and over on her back in sheer delight, usually in anything that she knows we will find disgusting.
