Dermapet Shampoos

Nina has pyoderma.

A lot of what I have read recommends antibacterial shampoos quite frequently "to remove infectious debris (discharge, crusts, etc)."

It's a folliculitis/furnunculous kind of thing...whatever...

A lot of what I have read indicates "Appropriate antibacterial shampoos include benzoyl peroxide, chlorhexidine, chlorhexidine-ketoconazole, ethyl lactate, and triclosan." http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/in...m/bc/70900.htm

Those seem kind of harsh and I found the ones below on KV Vet. The one does have peroxide-yeeks. I am probably going to review this with her vet, but I was thinking I could bring the shampoo to her groomer every few weeks until it's warm enough for me to bathe her outside. She should probably get more frequent baths, but maybe I could just wash those areas weekly/more?

Dermabens: http://www.kvvet.com/KVVet/productr.asp?...A6BFF7BBDCA27A7
For hot spots, pyoderma, seborrhea oleosa and other diseases. Benzoyl Peroxide (2.5%) in a soapless shampoo base with antioxidants, vitamin E and coconut oil. Follicular flushing ability is unique to benzoyl peroxide which penetrates skin into the follicle and flushes it out. Moisturizers assist in general cleaning. Antimicrobial, follicular-flush, degreaser, antibacterial.

Malacetic Shampoo
http://www.kvvet.com/KVVet/productr.asp?...A6BFF7BBDCA27A7
This patented pleasant smelling, acetic acid/boric acid shampoo is a revolutionary breakthrough in topical dermatology therapy. Contains no dyes or animal protein. Acetic and Boric Acids have been used since medieval times for their antimicrobial properties. Acetic acid is a known conditioner for hair leaving it clean, soft and lustrous. Boric acid is known for it's insecticidal and antimicrobial properties. This product is keratolytic, keratoplastic, degreasing and should be a substitute for Benzoyl peroxide, sulfur/salicylic acid, tar, chlorhexidine and other products.

According to the KV Website:
"DERMAPET PRODUCTS® were developed by Steven A. Melman, V.M.D., an expert in veterinary dermatology. All natural, no dyes nor animal by-products, natural fragrances, pH balanced, non-polluting, biodegradable, environmentally sensitive and packaged in recyclable containers."

Thanks!

Re: Dermapet Shampoos

I know nothing about shampoos but boric acid is safe to use (don't ask me how I know that but I really do) and is very powerful at killing nasty infections. Just don't let her eat it.

Re: Dermapet Shampoos

When Penny had seborrhea as part of her allergies I used Sebalyt Shampoo with fantasic success! It truly did wonders to remove the scaling and greasiness from her skin.

It contains Triclosan which your merck quote says is good for Nina's condition.
