Treat your pet's bacterial or fungal skin infection safely and easily with KetoChlor. KetoChlor is an antiseborrheic cleansing shampoo formulated to help treat fungal and bacterial skin-related conditions. It works by disrupting the colonization of micro-organisms on the skin, delaying irritation caused by topical bacteria or yeast. KetoChlor contains 2.3% chlorhexidine gluconate and 1% ketoconazole and is prescribed to help manage skin conditions responsive to these ingredients. Best of all, this shampoo lathers well, rinses easily and leaves behind a clean scent.


KetoChlor is indicated for the treatment of both fungal and bacterial skin diseases. KetoChlor is formulated with chlorhexidine, an antiseptic and ketoconazole, which is an anti-fungal.

Possible Side Effects

While side effects are rare when used according to your veterinarian’s instructions, skin irritation may occur. If irritation does occur, discontinue use and contact your veterinarian.

Drug & Food Interactions

Consult with your veterinarian before using KetoChlor with other medications including supplements and vitamins as interactions may occur.


Not for use in those who are hypersensitive (allergic) to ketoconazole, chlorhexidine gluconate or similar products.
