Dosage and administration

Thoroughly saturate the coat with one part of the shampoo in ten parts of warm water, then pour the shampoo as required over the back of the animal. Rub this into a good lather adding more water as necessary. When clean, rinse thoroughly and dry. Take care to prevent the shampoo from entering the eyes of coming into contact with mucous membranes. This can be done by smearing petroleum jelly around these areas.

In case of lice infestation:

Use at least 1 litre of shampoo per horse and ensure that all parts of the body are shampooed. Leave in contact for at least 10 minutes before rinsing off. Repeat 10–14 days later. To help prevent reinfestation, the horse's stable, blankets and grooming equipment etc should also be treated with a suitable insecticide.

What animal can this shampoo be used on

28th Oct 2014

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?

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.
