Malaseb is a shampoo containing chlorhexidine and miconazole. It is used to treat skin conditions in dogs where an overgrowth of bacteria or yeasts are present. This can happen in a variety of different skin conditions. On some occasions a course of treatment can provide a complete cure, but often regular periodic treatment is needed to prevent recurrence. It is important to apply Malaseb correctly to gain full effect. Firstly water should be applied to wet the coat, then Malaseb is added and worked into a lather over the skin. This should the be gently worked into the skin to ensure good contact is achieved. Particular importance should be attached to the skin near the lips, under the tail and between the toes. The lather then needs to be left to soak on the skin for a full 10 minutes. After this the Malaseb should be rinsed off using lots of luke-warm water. The dog should then be kept in a warm place until the coat has dried.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Malaseb Dog Shampoo, including answers from our team.
I need malaseb shampoo but don't have prescription, how do I go about getting it ? X
You need to ask your vet to write a prescription for you, then send us a copy of the prescription. We cannot supply you without that.
Does this shampoo work on mites?
This shampoo is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal but it has no direct effect on mites. These days mites are more easily controlled with appropriate spot-on treatments. (Most itchy dogs do not have mites though and your vet will be able to advise you on suitable treatments.)
does it cure it
Malaseb is usually used to help clear bacterial or fungal infections of the skin. Repeated use is normally needed, and sometimes antibiotic tablets care give too. It is certainly possible for the infection to be cleared completely and to never come back. However there are lots of other factors involved with skin infection and irritation. Depending on the individual patient, recovery may be partial or temporary. It is very likely that the situation will be much improved by using Malaseb, whatever else is going on, if a complete cure is not possible. It depends largely on the cause in the first place.
