Description

Treat your pet's bacterial or fungal skin infection safely and easily with KetoChlor. KetoChlor is an antiseptic and 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 low-lather formula shampoo rinses easily and leaves behind a clean scent.

Uses

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.

Precautions

For animal use only. For external use only. EYE IRRITANT. Avoid contact with eyes or mucous membranes. If undue skin irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and consult a veterinarian.

    Great for seasonal allergies

    By on

    After we moved to South Carolina from Chicago, my cockapoo started having severe yeast infections in his ears and dry boils on his skin that were related (according to my vet). My vet recommended this shampoo and it's the only thing that's worked for us. My vet told me to bathe my dog with it 2 to 3 times per week and MOST IMPORTANTLY leave it on the skin for 20 minutes before rinsing. This can be a challenge so what I started doing is rubbing a little shampoo onto his dry spots and taking him for a walk for 20 minutes. When we get back, I put him in the tub where I give him a full, regular bath in this (at least, then, the troubling dry spots have been treated for 20 minutes).

    Excellent product

    I use it as directed to keep my cat's nail beds clean and to prevent them from getting infected. It doesn't work overnight, but I've noticed a lot of progress since I started treating her.

    Excellent medicated shampoo

    I've tried many things to treat my dog's paw pad infections, and KetoChlor has been the only product that helped. With twice daily shampooings, her feet are beginning to heal.

    German Shepherd life saver!

    By on

    My dog has had series where she gets hot spots but recently she had a three month flare up with mange that had us contemplating whether we were able to care for her permanently. After visiting her doctor he recommended this shampoo and thankfully she is doing so much better. Her skin sores are dry and she is happier no longer scratching at herself. This has literally saved our dog’s life we are so thankful.

    Nose Saver!

    By on

    this product was a life...no a Nose saver! my German Shepard swims in our pool on a daily and started to smell so unbelievably sour we could not stand it. With just 4 applications we can breathe again!! The only downside is that it is expensive and 4 applications was just about all the bottle held, so I am glad it was fast acting

    Works Great and Smells Wonderful too

    By on

    I am glad I chose this product this time! I have used several products for scaly, itchy skin on my little munchkin and though they all seem to work as long as you really use them consistently as directed... this one also smells GREAT and lathers nicely. This is my new first choice! And as always... I could count on Chewy to get my order to me fast!

    Works like it says

    By on

    I recently moved to Texas and with this humidity my dog smells. She gets in the pool and smells rotten. The smell is indescribable! I did what the directions said and really worked it into her paws (which sometimes smell like Fritos) the smell was gone once I rinsed her off. I definitely recommend this product!

    Itchy shampoo

    By on

    My dog has a problem with fungus in paws and ears. I tried this shampoo thinking because it was more expensive it would be more effective. Not the case! She itches, bites and shakes her head more than ever. I am not a fan and would NOT recommend this product!
