My dog has been itchy , done food elimination tho can't find problem ,have washed him with oatmeal shampoo which relives symptoms a little though not to great effect so I tried Malaseb today, using instructions printed on bottle ,after washing and drying he seemed quite comfortable then his skin started to deepen in colour and became more and more itchy and he was becoming so hot you could feel the temperature coming from him ,I made a mix 50,50 of Cider Vinegar and water and tried to apply tho was so itchy tore my arm with his claws as soon a...s I touched him trying to itch himself .I held his legs and applied the Vinegar and water which seemed to relive him emidiatly, he's still very touchy and about 50 percent back to normal ,I'm hoping I can keep him stable till I get to the Vets first thing ,I'm sure this is a very good product but as above can have side effects on some of our fur Baby's so I suggest doing a test wash on a small area of skin and observing for several hours. If I had known this I would have saved my self a whole lot of Heart ache ,sleepless night, worry and pending Vet bills.
Purchased in November 2020 for A$25.00.
I've been recommended Malaseb by vets, but I found it drying. Then my vet said to use for one of my dog's allergy rash and dilute it 1:10 for cleaning ears. I reread the instructions and realised I was using far too much as shampoo. For the past few weeks I've used the amount on the bottle, and QV bath oil afterwards. It has helped both my dog's itching. Just don't pour heaps straight out of the bottle on to your pet, like I used to.
Good for Ringworm prevention and treatment in dogs
I have used Malaseb shampoo to prevent ringworm in my dogs over the years, wether it was through direct exposure with an infected animal or suspected infected animal or visited a place where there was suspected ringworm in their pets. Works great and never had a ringworm infection in my dogs as I would wash them immediately after any suspected exposure/during the visit.
My Cavalier had a mild yeast infection in her paw pads as a puppy and Malaseb twice a week for two weeks cleared that up.
If my dogs were to contract Ringworm I would defin...itely use Malaseb as it limits the amount of environmental contaminantion through limiting ringworm fungal spores being shed. Be careful when washing around the face, if it gets in their eyes it causes irritation. This happened once and my dog was fine thankfully but now I use a sponge or my finger very carefully around the eye area.
My pup gets periods of inflamed itchy skin which sometimes can be dry and flaky and at other times seem moist and warm. I got this shampoo and it was like instant relief for the both of us. There’s nothing worse than watching your loved pet suffer and scratch and become red all over. This shampoo smells nice and fresh, really calms her skin, redness goes away and itchy is soothed. Completely worth every cent! And saved her from taking medication instead. A much easier, less costly and healthier alternative, and she smelled pretty and felt soothed after her first wash. Love it! Happy pup, happy me!
If you have been on the hunt for a great shampoo for your dog and haven’t found anything out then look no further as this product leaves your dog looking and smelling so fresh and clean and the benefits last ages .
I have tried many shampoos for my dogs and this is the only product that leaves them smelling so good for so long !
When it comes to price it is on the higher end of the spectrum but you pay for what you get in the end it’s cheaper than taking them to a grooming salon and yet you get the same great smelling result!
This shampoo smells disgusting, dries out coat & skin which is not surprising considering ingredients. I tried this on various dogs over many years & had no improvement at all. Have found several natural products not filled with toxic chemicals that do a far better job although since I started feeding my 3 dogs only fresh fruit, vegetables & free range chicken with no processed food at all they have never had any skin problems.
Itching and smell have gone
Malaseb Medicated Shampoo was recommended to me 2 years ago after my little dog was diagnosed with a skin condition that made him itch and gave off a nasty odour. I wash him twice a week (once in winter) making sure to massage the malaseb in well and leave on for the recommended 10 minutes. I noticed an improvement almost immediately but have continued to use malaseb to avoid the dermatitis an itching from returning. Happy dog and happy owner as he no longer rubs his back over the carpet.
I use this product in my grooming salon.
I’m a groomer & I swear by malaseb. I encourage any of my clients who have fur babies with skin conditions to try it. I have never had any say it didn’t work. I strongly recommend you follow the instructions to the letter, such as letting your fur baby “soak” for a full ten minutes. If you don’t you will not get the full benefits. I hope others have the success I have seen with this product.
Perfect. Done the job
My poor girl was as so itchy and I tried a few different products to no use. A helpful lady from overstock suggested I try this and my dog instantly relived from irritation and itching that was driving us both insane.
She is much happier and on top of leaving her nice and clean She is soft and fluffy!
I used Malaseb on my dog because it is supposed to be safe for dogs with skin problems but some got into his eye & it very quickly caused a chemical burn on the eye. His vet has been treating it for nearly 3 weeks now & we had to see an ophthalmologist because it caused so much damage, there is still a chance my dog will lose his eye so I will never use this again. There are many other products available that contain natural & safe ingredients that would be safer than this toxic shampoo.
Used on horse for bad case of greasy heel/mud fever
Had used Malaseb with success for dogs smelly itchy coat problem so gave it a try on horse's 6 month old severe case of greasy heel which developed into cellulitis at one point (cured with antibiotics but still had greasy heels) and it finally started to improve within a week. Vet had recommended I try washes in chlorhexidine, 5% bleach, Canesten & saline none of which helped at all. Horse didn't mind Malaseb washes even though skin was red raw & bleeding in places but had objected to C/hex, bleach & Canesten which irritated already sore skin. ...Have used Malaseb since at first sign of greasy heal and stopped it in its tracks. Great product if you follow the instructions & rinse/dry off treated areas. Helps soften scabby skin which is typical with greasy heel & helps active ingredients penetrate the affected skin.
After using malaseb for years on my cavvies...my latest cav pup..1yr old..licked shampoo vomited for hours..now has a liver toxicity problem won't eat and came close to passing away.. It's a very severe reaction but really not worth the risk.. Poured malaseb down sink. Would not ever recommend to anyone. Dog groomer of 25 years.
Questions & Answers
Our dog was diagnosed to have skin fungus and was recommended to use this product every day for 2 weeks. It looks to have reduced the itching but her skin is blackening where the soap has been applied. Has anyone had this experience? Will her skin return to normal?
