Dogs: For the treatment and control of seborrhoeic dermatitis associated with Malassezia pachydermatis and Staphylococcus intermedius.
Cats: As an aid in the treatment of ringworm due to Microsporum canis in conjunction with griseofulvin.
Dogs and cats:
In order to prevent reoccurrence of the infection, appropriate control methods should be employed in the animal’s environment (e.g. cleaning and disinfection of kennels, beds).
Malaseb shampoo should only be used in conjunction with griseofulvin when treating for ringworm.
Shampooing cats may initially increase the recovery of M. canis by brush culture techniques.
Both field and experimental studies have shown that environmental contamination with M. canis can be eliminated or reduced by the use of Malaseb shampoo twice weekly. In these studies, griseofulvin was administered continuously throughout the treatment period and both clinical improvement was enhanced and environmental contamination reduced compared to the use of griseofulvin alone.
For external use only.
In case of accidental contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water.
Do not allow the animal to lick itself during shampooing and rinsing, or before it is dried. Take care to avoid the animal inhaling the product or getting it into the nose or mouth during shampooing.
Puppies and kittens should not come into contact with nursing females after treatment until the coat has dried.
Exceptionally a dog with atopy or a cat with allergic skin disease may develop a pruritic and/or erythematous reaction after treatment.
In very rare circumstances, dogs and cats may develop a skin reaction (itching, redness) after treatment.
Pregnancy: Malaseb shampoo in conjunction with griseofulvin should not be used in pregnant cats as griseofulvin is contra-indicated in pregnancy.
