Malaseb Shampoo Description

Have you noticed your cat or dog scratching a lot? Loose hair everywhere? Check your pet’s coat and if you notice flakey skin, thinning hair patches, redness, or a ring of raised skin, talk to your veterinarian about a prescription for Malaseb Shampoo. The active ingredients work as an effective antifungal and antimicrobial shampoo that can help your pet find relief from itching and scratching as it combats bacterial, yeast, and fungal infections.

Malaseb Shampoo does not contain any dyes or perfumes that can irritate pets’ skin and works to remove old skin oils on your pet’s coat to bring back its shine. Even as a treatment during the cold winter months to soothe itchy skin and remove excess scales or flakes, or for treating ‘hot spots’ or irritating flea bites in the summer, Malaseb Shampoo or generic Chlorhexidine Gluconate/Miconazole Nitrate can be a great comfort for your pet. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How the Active Ingredients Work on Your Pet’s Skin

As you shampoo your pet, Chlorhexidine Gluconate/Miconazole Nitrate is absorbed into the skin cells. Chlorhexidine Gluconate works as both a bactericidal and bacteriostatic chemical antiseptic. This means it can kill the bacteria or render it unable to multiply and grow as it disrupts the cell membrane. Your dog or cat’s immune system will help eliminate any remaining bacteria.

Miconazole Nitrate works as an antifungal agent that can quickly deal with getting rid of ringworm, a highly contagious skin condition. As Miconazole Nitrate is absorbed, it interferes with the production of an essential part of the fungal cell membranes called ergosterol. The fungi cannot grow or replicate so they will die off. Malaseb Shampoo is also for use on horses.

Conditions Treated by Malaseb Shampoo

Ringworm has nothing to do with worms, but it’s appearance may resemble that of a circular worm. The dermatophytes responsible for ringworm are called Microsporum canis (M. canis). The spores attach to the skin and produce hyphae that can infiltrate through broken skin or a small abrasion, possibly caused from scratching that area.

Ringworm can be transmitted to other pets and humans through the same mechanism. Spores in your household can remain infectious for up to 2 years so it’s important to thoroughly wash your pets bedding and any rugs or mats they sleep on, your own bedding, towels used during their bath, and any grooming equipment used on your pets.

Before Malaseb Shampoo is Prescribed by Your Veterinarian

Ask your veterinarian if Malaseb Shampoo is safe to use on your pregnant or nursing pets, or how old a kitten or puppy must be before using Chlorhexidine Gluconate/Miconazole Nitrate generic or brand on them. Keep Malaseb Shampoo safely out of children’s reach.

Malaseb Shampoo Recommendations and Proper Use

Avoid getting Malaseb Shampoo in your pet’s eyes and rinse thoroughly afterwards so they will not be licking it off of their coat. If the infection is spreading or looks worse after treating with Malaseb Shampoo as directed, ask your vet about an oral or topical drug to use as well. Watch for signs of facial swelling that could indicate a severe allergic reaction to Malaseb Shampoo.
