Exclusive patented technology provides a slow release of ingredients long after application
Pleasant-smelling shampoo lathers well

This antiseptic shampoo is used in the management of conditions that respond to ketoconazole (an antifungal) or chlorhexidine (an antiseptic). Ingredients are combined in an easy-lathering and easy-rinsing shampoo.

How does KetoChlor Shampoo work?
KetoChlor Shampoo is a combination of Chlorhexidine Gluconate (2%), an antiseptic, and ketoconazole (1%), an antifungal. Combined with a patented Spherulite technology, the ingredients reduce the numbers of bacteria and fungi (namely yeast) on the skin.

Is there a generic equivalent available?

How is it given?
KetoChlor is applied topically when bathing your pet. It is important that the lather be allowed to remain on the pet for at least 5-10 minutes each time the shampoo is applied. Rinse the animal very well with clean water after shampooing. For external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes or mucus membranes. Wash hands after use.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulties using this shampoo, contact your veterinarian. Frequency of use depends upon the condition and response to treatment. Shake well before use and follow the manufacturer's directions.

What results can I expect?
KetoChlor must generally be used several times a week for several weeks before results may be seen. Therapy may also include oral antibiotics or antifungal medications.

What form(s) does it come in?
KetoChlor comes in liquid shampoo form.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering KetoChlor Shampoo?
Discuss how to best bathe your pet and use KetoChlor. Ask what type of outcome is expected. Have your veterinarian explain the other treatment options for your pet's skin condition.

What should I do if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule.

What is the most important information I should know?
Shampoos are generally used in combination with other therapies to treat skin conditions. By themselves, medicated shampoos may not be sufficient, but they are an excellent addition to a treatment plan.

Who should not take it?
Not for use on pets hypersensitive (allergic) to it or to similar products.

What side effects may be seen when taking KetoChlor Shampoo?
You should not see any side effects if used according to directions. If skin irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and contact your veterinarian.

How is it stored?
Store tightly capped at controlled room temperature (59°F-86°F). Keep out of reach of children and pets.

What should I do if I know of or suspect there has been an overdose?
Adverse reactions and toxicities are unlikely. If you know or suspect your pet has had a reaction to KetoChlor, or if your pet ingests KetoChlor, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid when giving my pet KetoChlor Shampoo?
Consult with your veterinarian before using KetoChlor shampoo with any other medications.

Where is more information available?
Ask your veterinarian, consult with one of our pharmacists at 1-800-447-3021, or see the Patient Information Sheet on this medication.

Bathing frequency depends on a number of factors: the particular breed of dog, how much time is spent outdoors, the dog's age, and any existing medical conditions, to name a few.
Many pet owners believe that scratching is normal behavior for dogs. It is not. Scratching or rubbing the face or flanks, and licking at feet indicates that something is not right with your pet.
