Dechra Mal-a-ket Medicated Antifungal and Antibacterial Shampoo for Dogs, Cats and Horses – 8 oz



Keep your furry friend clean, healthy, and smelling fresh with Dechra Mal-a-ket Medicated Shampoo. This veterinarian-recommended shampoo contains a powerful blend of antifungal, antibacterial, and degreasing agents to promote skin and coat health in dogs, cats, and horses.

Fights Bacteria and Fungus

The active ingredients in Mal-a-ket shampoo work together to combat common skin conditions in pets. It contains 2% chlorhexidine, which acts as a broad-spectrum disinfectant against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. This helps kill microbes that cause infections and gives the shampoo antibacterial properties.

The shampoo also includes 1% ketoconazole, an antifungal medication that treats fungal and yeast infections on the skin. By fighting two of the most common culprits of skin issues in pets, Mal-a-ket shampoo helps resolve many mild to moderate cases of bacterial dermatitis, ringworm, seborrhea, and other conditions.

Degreases and Deodorizes

In addition to its antimicrobial effects, Mal-a-ket shampoo acts as a degreaser to remove dirt, oil, and debris from your pet’s coat and skin. The shampoo helps dissolve the fatty acids on the skin that bacteria feed on. By stripping away grease and grime, it makes the skin a less welcoming environment for microbes to grow.

The shampoo is also specially formulated to have a pleasant fragrance. It neutralizes funky pet odors and leaves your dog, cat, or horse smelling clean and fresh after bath time. The deodorizing properties keep your home smelling nicer too.

Soothes Irritated Skin

For pets with irritated, flaky, or inflamed skin, Mal-a-ket shampoo provides a soothing cleanse. The antiseptic and antifungal properties reduce itching and inflammation caused by infections. The gentle formula won’t strip natural oils from the skin or cause additional irritation.

Your pet will love the cooling relief it provides to their sore, sensitive skin. The shampoo helps restore skin health and improve overall comfort.

Veterinarian Recommended

You can trust Mal-a-ket shampoo because it’s recommended by veterinary professionals. Veterinarians often prescribe it as part of treatment plans for pets with skin infections, ringworm, seborrhea, dermatitis, pyoderma, and other conditions. It’s an effective medicated shampoo that is gentle enough for regular use.
