What is Malaseb Shampoo for Dogs and Cats?

Malaseb Shampoo for Dogs and Cats is an antifungal and antibacterial shampoo used for a number of reasons. In dogs, the shampoo is used to treat seborrheic dermatitis and in cats, it’s used to treat and control ringworm infections (in conjunction with griseofulvin).

Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin disorder that affects the sebaceous glands of the skin. If these glands produce too much sebum, then the hair follicles can get clogged and there can be a build up of bacteria on the skin. This can then make the skin dry, red, itchy or flaky.

Ringworm, on the other hand, is a fungal infection. It has similar symptoms to dermatitis in that the skin can become red, inflamed, dry and scaly. Ringworm infections have a distinctive circular appearance in people, however this does not always occur in pets.

Both conditions can cause pain and discomfort, so an effective treatment like Malaseb Shampoo for Dogs and Cats will help to offer your pet relief. 

How does Malaseb Shampoo for Dogs and Cats work?

The active ingredients in Malaseb Shampoo for Dogs and Cats are chlorhexidine gluconate and miconazole nitrate. Chlorhexidine gluconate is a germicidal substance that helps to reduce bacteria, while miconazole is an antifungal that specifically targets ringworm (including a number of other infections).

With both antibacterial and antifungal properties, the medicine is effective for a number of uses and can be used in both cats and dogs.

Instructions for Malaseb Shampoo for Dogs and Cats

When you receive the medication, it’s important to read and understand the dosage instructions. The dose of the medicine may depend on your animal and the details of their condition.

Before use, start by wetting your animal with water and then apply the shampoo and massage it into the coat. You should use enough shampoo to create a good lather, so that it penetrates to the skin. Don’t forget hard-to-reach areas like between the toes and under the tail.

After applying the shampoo, leave it for 10 minutes and then rinse it off and allow to dry naturally. Make sure your animal does not lick itself during application or before their coat has dried.

For use in dogs, the shampoo should initially be used twice weekly and then this can be reduced to once a week when symptoms begin to subside. For use in cats, the shampoo should be used twice weekly until coat brushings are negative for ringworm (maximum treatment period is 16 weeks). 

You should use this product as directed by your veterinary surgeon.
