SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE/SALICYLIC ACID SHAMPOO FOR TREATMENT OF CANINE STAPHYLOCOCCAL PYODERMA


Valerie A. Fadok, DVM, PhD, DACVD, Katherine Irwin, DVM, DACVD

The emergence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius has increased the interest in topical therapy for treating canine pyoderma. Shampooing with chlorhexidine followed by dilute bleach rinses are often recommended, but household bleach can dry the skin and is unpleasant to use. A shampoo formulated with sodium hypochlorite, salicylic acid, and moisturizing ingredients was evaluated as sole therapy for dogs with superficial pyoderma associated with S. pseudintermedius, including methicillin-resistant strains without drying of the skin.
