Gave my dog seizures
I was told by my vet that my dog had epilepsy and needed medication for life. When I did my own research and trial and error I knew I just started her on Malaban Wash stopped it and the seizures stopped. Be very careful with this toxic product
Adverse reaction for me
Diluted the Malaban, 30 ml in 1 litre of water. Swabbed cat whilst wearing rubber gloves. 10 minutes later I have itchy eyes and respiratory tract irritation. I do not think this is a safe product to use. A waste of $50 and now need to find an alternative for treating mites.
Purchased in December 2019 for A$50.00.
Dangerous long term
Yes it does work and I know how crazy fleas make me feel but I would Never use again. I lost one dog, a long haired shepherd to skin cancer, and our beautiful kelpie got cancer of the spine, or bone cancer I suppose. Malaban was the only shared product and although both dogs lived for years, both types of cancer were painful.
Questions & Answers
I think my ten year old dog has follicle mites as my research indicates. Can I use Malaban to treat her and her environment to rid these from both
Im sorry but I don't know if it treats follicle mites. On the back of the tin it tells what it treats. I think its mainly used for ticks.
I have since found out from my local pet products supplier that Advantix (flea/tick control) treats / keeps at bay follicle mite. I have been using this on my dog for years and it is no longer working. They said that Malaban is the next treatment but must be used strictly as directed.........
Thought I’d answer my own question in case there is someone else having the same issue.
Hi there, I have two questions. I have just dunked my chickens in a dilute of malaban 10ml to 1ltr of water, according to an expert at my local chicken shop (which is now closed for the weekend). Thereafter, I saw that the solution expired 6 months ago. Does anyone have a sense of whether it still might've been effective? I have small concerns (small as it seems unlikely) that the chemicals might become more potent or change with time to become more harmful somehow... Secondly, the water I dunked them in and the others bucket of water that started fresh and then became slightly contaminated throughout, what is the best way to dispose of this?
Thanks in advance.
