Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff This shampoo is amazing. My poor fur baby suffers with skin yeast when summer hits. After 3 shampoos her skin is looking healthy and the hair is growing back. Oral ketoconazole is expensive but works. This shampoo is less expensive and for us works just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and easy to use Our Aussie Josie has been prone to skin infections, this shampoo helped out along with her RX on antibiotics she was back to herself within 2 days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticed A Difference First Use My 12 year old cat has recurring skin problems. Bacterial infection and scans and itching. After the first use I noticed a big difference. It got rid of most of the scans and he seems to have relief. We gave him a 2nd bath 5 days later and he seems to be feeling better and his skin is still improving. Some areas still need work as he sometimes licks and chews his back side but a couple more baths may cure him.

Q&A

Can this be used on lactating dogs

Asked by: Idontwant1
No it is not recommended. Use only a bland shampoo that is free of chemicals, flea and tick killers, deodorants or de-tanglers. It is best to wait at least 2-3 weeks after sticky discharge diminishes to bathe your furry friend after she whelps. While it's best to wait a while before giving your nursing dog a complete bath in the first days of nursing, you can clean her up using a damp towel. If her nipples are caked with dry milk, for instance, it's a good idea to carefully clean her up using a soft washcloth immersed in warm water. Pay special attention to rinsing it off completely. Dry her off with towels, or better, with a hair dryer to ensure she's completely dry to go back to her hungry pups. While you're cleaning her up, make sure the pups stay warm

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.
