Which shampoo?

Pyohex shampoo

Dermcare logo 200Is used for infected skin conditions. It contains Chlorhexidine, which we use to scrub our hands with prior to operating.

Badly infected skin problems need washing at least twice a week. Leave Pyohex on for 10 minutes and rinse off well. For hot spots, use Pyohex one or two times a day to kill the bacteria causing the inflammation. If using Pyohex regularly, we recommend applying Dermcare Aloveen conditioner after washing.

Pyohex Medicated Lotion (NEW)

The most common cause of skin infections, Staphylococcus (Staph), is susceptible to chlorhexidine if incorporated in a shampoo or Pyohex Medicated Lotion.

Chlorhexidine used in a shampoo has a 4 day residual action, and if used in a lotion after shampoo, has an antibacterial action of up to 2 weeks.

The chlorhexidine in topical preparations is optimised at a 3% concentration.

Pyohex Medicated Lotion is well tolerated on the dog and can be used in young dogs for extended periods.

Pyohex Medicated Lotion is a leave-in lotion and its action and use is maximised if used after chlorhexidine containing shampoos e.g. Malaseb or Pyohex. It is applied after rinsing off the shampoo and is left on the coat and skin. The leave-in nature of Pyohex Medicated Lotion acts to decrease the bacterial load on the skin and reduces the recurrence of infection.

Malaseb Shampoo

Is used for yeast and bacterial infections in greasy/dandruff skin. Badly infected skin problems need washing at least twice a week. Leave Malaseb on for 10 minutes and rinse off well.

Malaseb makes an excellent ear wash for pets with chronic ear infections. Dilute 30mls of Malaseb into 30mls of water. Flush ears once or twice a week if a chronic ear infection sufferer especially during the warmer months of the year. Make up a fresh solution each time.

If using Malaseb regularly, we recommend applying Dermcare Aloveen conditioner after washing.

Aloveen shampoo

Has all the soothing, anti-itching and anti-inflammatory effects of Oatmeal & Aloe Vera.

It's great for itchy pet’s skin not complicated by the presence of bacteria and/or yeasts.

Aloveen conditioner

Has all the soothing, anti-itching and anti-inflammatory effects of Oatmeal &  Aloe Vera.

Aloveen conditioner contains micro-spheres which coat the hairs and skin surface, forming a protective layer against allergens. In other words, they act like a force field to protect the skin from things that make pets itch eg pollens, grasses, house dust mites. Aloveen conditioner is often used in conjunction with any of the Dermcare shampoos to ensure a beautiful, soft shiny coat.

Many pet owners with itchy pets apply Aloveen conditioner on their pets before they go for a walk. Aloveen does not have to be applied to a wet coat. Place a small amount on your hands, rub them together, then run your hands through your pet's coat before each walk

Natural shampoo

Is used for general shampooing of pets. Dermcare Natural Shampoo does not strip the protective oils from the coat or skin surface, unlike cheaper pet shop or supermarket brands of pet shampoos.

Dermcare Natural shampoo can be used daily if required.

Use with Dermcare Aloveen conditioner for a smooth shiny healthy coat.
