Used for Ada's first bath which she enjoyed. Hopefully it will help keep the flies away this summer. I have bought a pump for the bottle but you can easily pour it into smaller containers.

Hi, can this be used on goats?

Feather mites

Does this work on feather mites?

  • VioVet Staff

Dermoline Insect Shampoo has no active ingredients that will kill mites, but it is useful for removing the secondary crusting/debris from the site. It is also intended for use on horses, if you would like an over the counter product to clear chicken feather mites that is also safe if they are laying/for meat then I would advise Johnsons Poultry Mite & Lice Powder.

Dermaline for itchy face

Angela Sharp (mob924124323)

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Santiago do Cacem, Portugal

Hello, for the last two summers one of my horses has suffered a very itchy face that has small scabs and bare patches. It starts in June and last year was particularly bad and he scarred himself from rubbing so badly. I live in Portugal located in a very warm area. I tried numerous products but nothing worked. My vet suggested Invermectin doses which I followed but it did not stop the problem. A lot of horse owners living in the Algarve reported the Same problem. Due to power of sun I have to be careful what I use and was wandering whether it would be safe to use something like an insecticide shampoo and Dermaline itch product. I think it must be an insect of some kind. It also coincides with the arrival of my hay, not sure if it is the case for other people's horses.
If there is another product or anything you can suggest I would be most grateful. I am ready to reorder my suppleness so will add your suggestions.
Many thanks

Hi Angela,

This sounds a lot like sweet itch. With this condition management and prevention is the key. Have you tried just putting a fly mask on so that the flies/midges cannot get to your horse's face? Also stabling at dawn and dusk when midges are most active is helpful and turning out away from water since this is where flies and midges tend to breed. Using a good fly repellent such as Deosect is important too.

In terms of medication you could speak to your vet about giving a long-acting steroid injection which helps to stop itching. For this to be successful it is best to give before the itching even starts (ie. before June). A steroid cream such as Fucidin H would also be helpful to put onto any itchy areas but this would require a prescription from your vet.

Lastly you could have a look at Cavalesse which is a neutraceutical product containing nicotinamide which is very successful for some horses if started early before any itching.

All of these products can be found on our website so have a look and see what you think although management, as I say, really is key here.

What animal can this shampoo be used on


Many years ago I used to buy this product for use on my show dogs & cats it was fantastic can u tell me why it is no longer available for use on cats & dogs? or if there is a similar product available from the dermaline range?

  • VioVet Staff

Dermoline products are marketed for horses, though sometimes they can be used on other species. You should always check with your own vet before doing this. The Dermoline Insecticidal Shampoo contains an ingredient which is toxic to cats, so should never be used on them. These days the spot-on insecticides are so easy to use and effective that insecticidal shampoos for dogs are not in common use. They tend to be less effective and potentially more toxic.
