Does your pet feel so irritable that he or she cannot stop scratching? You can see that your pet is scratching with all his might using their hind legs or biting their own skin just to take away whatever is irritating them. It is a pitiful site especially when your dog gives that look that he is in terrible need of help. Perhaps, your dog has a problem other than the tiny fleas, it may seborrhea.
You are probably already aware of this skin problem among humans but you never thought that it could also affect animals like cats, dogs and horses. The symptoms of seborrhea include flaky and dry skin or oily skin, severe itchiness and infection caused by open wounds due to nonstop scratching are also apparent. One of the most recommended ways to treat this ailment is by using Malaseb dog shampoo. Malaseb is formulated to treat the secondary type of seborrhea which is very common among pets. The primary type of seborrhea is caused by a genetic condition that is passed on to specific lines of cats and dogs while the secondary type is caused by contraction of yeast, bacteria or fungus by any four legged, furry animal. As a result, the skin becomes itchy which makes the pet scratch wildly. The cleanliness of your home does not matter because your pet can contract the disease easily wherever they are. As a matter of fact, the strain of yeast is usually found around the mouth and ears of most pets.
Malaseb contains anti-fungal and, at the same time, anti-bacterial agents that can help your pet get rid of the infestation of pathogens so that your pet’s infection can be cured. An additional benefit of this medicated shampoo is that, because it has no scent or artificial dye contents, he or she does not have to suffer any allergy from those chemicals. Also, it helps in restoring and maintaining the natural oils of your pet’s coat. Your pet does not only get cured from seborrhea but he is able to have a very nice, shiny and clean coat.
Malaseb dog shampoo can also be used to treat psoriasis which is another type of skin ailment that is common among humans and dogs. Like other medicated shampoos, you must first get your doctor’s approval and carefully follow instructions when using the shampoo. It is important that the shampoo does not contaminate the eyes, mouth and ears. Also, the open wounds of your pet must be healed before applying the product. Your vet can give you more detailed instructions so make sure to bring your pet soon to the doctor and help your dog from the itching.
