Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shampoo!!! This shampoo makes my dog look great. We used Baby shampoo the first couple of months for my rescue dog and this shampoo is great. My dog looks like a show dog. It smells great and am really happy with this product. I bought with the ear wash and his bath time is so fun. He prances and is just worth a million bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME STUFF!!! My fiancé dog had been itching for 3yrs, smelled so bad you almost didn't want to be in the same room with her, she had lost hair and the vet said it was allergies! Was given allergy shots which didn't help but cost ALOT! I got to looking online about her symptoms and came across this site and looked the reviews and to my surprise she had a Yeast infection! Why didn't her vet know this I'm not quite sure ... After 1 week she has improved so much and the smell is going away and for the first time in 3 years she is feeling so much better and is even playing now! This stuff has done wonders for Cocoa!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a relief! No more prescription antibiotics or prednisone now. He is on a special food for skin sensitivities and we've been bathing him with this shampoo every 1 to 2 weeks. What a relief, his itchy skin has cleared up, he doesn't smell bad and we are saving on less vet bills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! I have never posted a review of a product. After finding Malapet, I had to do so. My dog, Merlin, is going on 14 years old. He is an Australian Shepard and Golden Retriever mix. Several years ago I noticed a small patch of black on his belly. It didn't seem to bother him at the time. The vet was't concerned and recommended an oatmeal shampoo. Over time, it grew worse and Merlin developed a horrible odor. The smell was like corn chips. He was hard to be around and that was sad for us all! Our dogs are a part of our family. They are my babies! The odor at times was unbearable. The carpets smelled, his bed smelled... He scratched excessively, he lost patches of hair, and he was miserable. I took him back to the vet and he prescribed an antibacterial shampoo. I noticed that his skin was better in the winter than in the summer. I wasn't sure what was going on. I even changed his diet. I was at a point where I was desperate to help our beloved pet. Going to the vet didn't seem to be helping us any. I began to research his symptoms and quickly learned he had a yeast infection of his skin. I'm not sure why a vet wouldn't know this. The oatmeal shampoo was horrible for this condition and the antibacterial did nothing either. I looked around and found Malapet on this website. I ordered it and used it just as directed. I could not believe the difference after even 1 shampoo. He smelled, well, normal, for lack of a better word! It really works. I don't need to use it in the winter, only the summer when the heat and humidity increase. Be sure to leave it on for 10-15 minutes once it's lathered up. I blow dry Merlin afterwards to make sure there's no wet areas on him. You have to keep moisture at bay. I hope this works for you and your pet like it did for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you pet owners Just like the reviews say, THIS WORKS! My dachshund had a severe rash under his front armpit. He would use his back paw and scratch the front pitt like a monkey! He was MISERABLE. Hes been on many meds, vet said, fungus, bacterial, yeasty etc. One even said he has ingrown hairs and I should squeeze his pitts to get the hair to come out! huh? really? pfft! I read the reviews and I thought wow, there are people saying key words, pet smelled swampy, like a skunk, smelled even after being washed. It was music to my ears, someone understood what my pet was going through. I use to buy all the ODOR smelly gets your pet clean and fresh guaranteed bottles of shampoo, which NEVER WORKED, I spent $$$ on vet bills. My dog would have to washed everyday because he smelled so bad, I put him in the tub, and he would cry like Lucille Ball on I love Lucy show, when she got in trouble, whaaaaaaaaaa! haha poor guy FINALLY SOMETHING THAT WORKS. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY, by the 2nd wash, I could see the rash going away, the SMELL IS GONE. I wash him about every 2-3 days during allergy season, to prevent the rash from revealing its ugly head, but hes Not on any medications. Thanks to malapet shampoo! thank you pet owners for sharing your honest positive reviews!

Has anyone compared Malapet to Malaseb?  Do you leave Malapet on your dog for 10 mins like the other directs?  What are the pluses of Malapet that Malaseb doesn't have?  Thanks! 

Asked by: MaryKathrynj
Malaseb contains Miconazole Nitrate 2% and Chlorhexidine Gluconate 2%. Malapet contains Ketoconazole 1.0% and Chlorhexidine Gluconate 2.0%. They both work as an anti-fungal and antibacterial shampoo to treat and prevent fungus and bacteria on your pets skin. They are both used the same, as follows: Wet coat thoroughly. Apply and lather over entire body allowing 10 minutes of contact time. Rinse completely with water. Repeat twice weekly until symptoms subside. Then use weekly, or as directed by your veterinarian.

Is this shampoo the same as Mal A Ket

Asked by: Princess
Malapet is very similar to Mal-A-Ket shampoo. They both contain 1% Ketoconazole (anti-fungal) and 2% Chlorhexidene Gluconate (antibacterial). However, Malapet does not contain 2% acetic acid like Mal-A-Ket shampoo. Otherwise, they should work the same to wash away fungus and bacteria.
