Malaseb® Medicated Shampoo is an antibacterial and antifungal medicated shampoo for dogs and cats.
It is indicated for the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis associated with bacteria (Staphylococcus pseudintermedius) and yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and is an aid in the treatment of ringworm (dermatophytosis) infections in pets.
Malaseb® Medicated Shampoo is formulated to remove scale, degrease the skin and kill cutaneous micro-organisms that primarily or secondarily cause dermatitis.
It is normal for pets to have low numbers of resident bacteria and yeast on the skin surface. When there is a disruption to the skin’s natural ecosystem these bacteria and yeast can overgrow, leading to skin disease.
Underlying causes of secondary bacterial and yeast infections of the skin can include:
It is important to treat the secondary infection as well as the underlying condition for optimal management of the skin disease.
If you are concerned your pet may have a skin infection, please visit your local veterinarian for a consultation. Diagnostic tests, such as cytology, will be necessary to determine which micro-organisms are present. This is essential in determining the best treatment and product for your dog.
Malaseb® Medicated Shampoo is registered for use in dogs and cats.
Dermatophytosis, commonly known as ringworm, is a contagious fungal disease affecting the skin and coat of pets.
Malaseb® Medicated Shampoo kills infective fungal spores on the coat. This helps to prevent the spread of the disease and reduces environmental contamination. The use of Malaseb® Medicated Shampoo in conjunction with a systemic antifungal reduces the time to clinical resolution when compared with using a systemic antifungal alone.
It is important to note that young children or people with a compromised immune system may be at a greater risk of contracting dermatophytosis (ringworm).
If you have an animal that has been diagnosed with or is suspected to have dermatophytosis, please discuss this with your doctor.
