Seborrhoea is a condition that shows as a greasy and possibly smelly coat. Some dogs have an inherited tendency to be greasy, or seborrhoea can be caused by allergies to things such as pollen as food.

Seborrhoea can be oily (olesosa) or dry (sicca). Pets with seborrhoea oleosa can develop waxy substance that coats their fur or clumps in their ears. Seborrhoea sicca causes flaky skin, like dandruff. Pets can suffer from both types of seborrhoea at the same time.

Use Sebolytic™ two or three each week. Treating for up to 4 weeks may be necessary to control some skin disorders.

If the preparation fails to alleviate the condition being treated, the user should seek veterinary advice.



Wet and clean hair with shampoo.

Repeat and measure the appropriate amount of shampoo based on the bodyweight of the dog.
