Bacterial skin infections in dogs can have a wide variety of symptoms or appearances.
Common appearances of bacterial infections include:
- Circular rings of scale or redness (epidermal collarettes)
- Inflamed and exudative areas of skin commonly referred to as hotspots
Chlorhexidine gluconate, the active ingredient in Pyohex shampoo and conditioner, has a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity against most bacteria that are commonly found in cases of superficial bacterial dermatitis. Studies show that the antibacterial activity of chlorhexidine gluconate is optimised at 3%, which is the concentration found in both Pyohex shampoo and conditioner.
