Malaseb Shampoo

Product overview

Malaseb is a medicated shampoo for cats and dogs to treat Seborrhoeic Dermatitis (a skin infection involving a common bacteria Staphylococcus and yeast Malassezia) and to help treat Dermatophytosis (ringworm - a fungal infection).

What it does

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.

How to Administer

  • Leave the shampoo on for the full 10 minutes where ever possible.
  • Always make sure the coat is thoroughly wet before applying Malaseb, as this will make lathering and spreading easier.
  • Using a wet sponge can help to spread the shampoo well. The sponge also holds water which again helps to ensure the coat is adequately wet during application.
  • A damp cloth, with a little diluted foam can be used to clean the face of both cats and dogs.
  • Whilst bathing cats is never easy, many will tolerate water better if it is not running. Using a 3 bucket technique, where all buckets are filled with warmwater can help. The cat is dunked (not including head) into the first bucket and shampoo applied, then wrapped in a towel for the 10 minutes to stay warm and prevent licking foam. Once the 10 minutes is up the cat is sequentially dunked into the foamy water then remaining buckets to rinse the coat.

What About Conditioner?

We suggest applying Aloveen Intensive Conditioner for its moisturising ard detangling properties after shampooing.

Side Effects

Important Note:

Ringworm can have serious consequences for those without a good immune system. If you have young children or immune-compromised adults in the same household as an infected pet please discuss this with your veterinarian or doctor.
