Dog Grooming Medicated Shampoo

If you are regularly grooming a dog you may be the first to notice a change in their skin or coat. If you are concerned that a customer’s dog may be suffering from a skin condition such as a bacterial infection, yeast infection, or a skin allergy, here are some symptoms you may see.

  • Dry flaking skin
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Inflamed hair follicles or skin
  • Bumps, sores, or scabs
  • Skin thickening or an unpleasant smell

You should recommend your customer take the dog to the vet for a proper diagnosis and they may recommend a medicated shampoo to treat the coat and skin. Often these shampoos contain ingredients that not only treat the condition but also soothe and relieve any itching.

We now have a medicated shampoo available through Christies Direct that does not require a prescription from the vet and is a great way to support your customers whose dogs may suffer repeat infections. 


Malabeze is a super-efficient professional dog grooming medicated shampoo. With a short 5-minute contact time it works to alleviate common skin conditions in dogs and cats. Malabeze can be used as a treatment by pet owners once a week to clear up infections or every 3 to 4 days if the infection is severe. After 3 weeks the owner should start to see an improvement, but if not, they will need to speak to their vet again. Once the infection has cleared you can continue to use Malabeze to prevent reinfection when they visit your salon.

As well as treating skin infections, reactions to blade and ringworm, Malabeze is also a great deep-cleaning shampoo so you don’t have to wash the dog’s coat with a cleansing shampoo prior to washing with Malabeze. 

You use this product straight onto the dog’s coat, there is no need to dilute and then massage into the coat while you add water. This product has a rich lather and while cleansing it will also deodorize. The formula contains moisturising and soothing ingredients so this product will not leave the coat dry. As far as grooming products go, this is definitely essential.

This can be used on puppies once they have received all their vaccinations and also on pregnant dogs.
