Dermcare Malaseb Medicated Shampoo For Dogs
Dermcare Malaseb Medicated Shampoo is formulated to remove scale. degrease the skin and kill cutaneous micro-organisms which primarily or secondarily cause dermatitis.
Malaseb is a medicated shampoo for cats and dogs which contains chlorhexidine and miconazole in a shampoo base. It is registered to treat Seborrhoeic Dermatitis and Dermatophytosis.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis is the scientific name for a skin infection involving both a combination of bacteria (Staphylococcus) and yeast (Malassezia).
It is normal in dogs to have low numbers of resident bacteria and yeasts on the skin surface. When there is a disruption to the skin’s natural ecosystem these bacteria and yeasts can overgrow causing disease
Reasons for disruption to the natural balance:
- Allergy, including to pollens, grasses, foods (meats) and fleas.
- Parasites, such as fleas, mites and lice.
- Hormonal problems.
- Conformational problems such as deep skin folds, making sweaty crevices.
How does Malaseb help?
- Kills the micro-organisms, helping to keep the numbers of yeasts and bacteria at manageable levels.
- Removes excess scale and oils, commonly produced when the skin is infected
- Removes allergens such as pollens which can be caught in fur or on skin causing irritation.
DERMATOPHYTOSIS or Ringworm
Dermatophytosis is the scientific name for ringworm, a condition which is not due to worms (like the name suggests) but is in fact a fungal infection.
Ringworm is the most common fungal condition in cats, however it is also a well recognised problem in dogs and horses.
Malaseb will help to sterilise the coat of ringworm spores, helping to speed recovery and prevent spread of the disease.
Ringworm in cats is a systemic disease which means that although you may only see a few spots the cat is actually covered in ringworm infection and thus all over treatment is needed.
Malaseb can be used alone or in combination with systemic medication (usually anti-fungal tablets) to treat ringworm. Combination therapy results in a faster cure than either alone.
It is important if you have young children or immune-compromised adults in the same household as an infected pet that you discuss this with your veterinarian or doctor. Ringworm can have serious consequences for those without a good immune system.
