  • Chlorhexidine 3%, which is an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal soap.

The microemulsion spray, like the shampoo is formulated with antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties. The spray has micro-sphere technology which helps the product travel over the skin. The active ingredients remain intact in the spheres until they penetrate the skin where they diffuse slowly to help heal and restore the skin barrier. The ingredients remain active in the sebaceous glands and the hair follicles and are released over several days. Unlike the shampoo, full saturation is not required, the spray is applied to one area and will spread over the skin.

Like the shampoo, the microemulsion spray contains:

  • Phytosphingosine, which helps restore skin barrier and also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
  • Chlorhexidine 3%, which is an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal soap.

The pyo pads are formulated with a non- stinging solution of chlorhexidine, phytosphingosene and moisturizers. The pads are to be used for local antiseptic skin cleansing and to aid in the treatment of superficial skin conditions. The pads are best for use on the pads of the feet, between the toes and on skin folds. Recommended use is once or twice weekly, or as directed by the veterinarian. It is recommended to use up the pads within 3 months of opening.
