Malacetic uses acetic acid, aka vinegar, to defeat both fungal and bacterial issues. It works with the naturally acidic pH of dogs' skin. My dog is allergic to chlorhexadine which is in most of these sorts of products. We use these wipes after every walk and have really made a difference in her health! The wipes are expensive but there's nothing else on the market that works as well. Very glad to have found them here.
I know that this product is supposed to be the same formula as the DermaPet product they recently bought out, but our dog had a terrible allergic reaction to it the first and only time we used it to clean the folds on his cheeks. Both his eyes ran dark brown gunk out of them for about 5 days. The product was not used near his eyes. There was no other change to his grooming regime so we can only think it was this new manufacturer. I know the formula is supposed to be the same - our Vet checked it out, but I would never again use it because of the severe reaction my dog had. His eyes are still stained around them even after a month.
My 7 year old collie has had a lifelong skin condition known as Malassezia.....he intermitently breaks out in horrible rashes that are greasy, itchy & resemble folliculitis. I must bathe him frequently & keep his hair cut...in between baths the Malacetic wipes are great & keep his skin under control.
I have used these wipes for approximately 9 years on both my Newfoundland dogs. They were recommended by my vet for cleaning the inside of their ears to prevent ear infections, particularly after swimming. I highly recommend them as they have saved me a lot of money and time. Also, I use them as a quick wipe down on the Newfs as well as on my cat, Mr. Magoo.
My collie has had severe skin problems most of his adult life.....I have to keep him shaved & bath him frequently with medicated shampoo......this product helps in between baths..especially if he develops sore spots. It is very handy to have.
These wipes were recommended by our vet. With our Lhasa Apso having chronic skin problems and always in the vet office, we needed some way to cut the expense. Even with shipping, this item is cheaper than at our vet's office.
My pug has a deep nose roll that extends even with his nose and is constantly subject to sneezes and wet tongue. He had chronic fungal buildup until our vet recommended the Wet Wipe. Almost instant relief. Caution to keep it from eyes is the only concern.
If you own a bulldog and need to keep their wrinkles and tail pocket clean and dry, this is the perfect wipe. After an infection, these wipes were provided by our vet at 4 times the price we paid for them on Entirely Pets.com. They are definitely part of our daily grooming, now that we know how affordable they can be.
Not surprisingly, this did not clean off the excess buildup caused by stud tail on my Persian cat.
I clean his tail twice daily with regular popular baby wipes and thought the Malacetic Wet Wipes would do a better job, but they did not. I had to rub excessively (not the thing to do for any sort of skin malady) to get the slightest result.
I'm sure they work for others, but for greasy stud tail, it's a no go.
my chocolate lab mocha suffers from contact allergies and was constantly corncobbing or chewing her paws. these wipes work magic and are a better option than giving the dog temerel or prednizone every day! i highly reccomend this product for any dog with skin allergies
We use these wipes on our English Bulldog. She has folds around her face that must be keep clean and dry otherwise they become red and irritated. We also use them on her tail. Our vet recommended them and they truly work. We will never go without them.
This product was recommended by my vet for my dog who has a yeast type of problem. I've been using it for several months and really it. My dog has responded well and I now use it only every few days. Your price is better than my vet's. Thanks for the quality product.
