What the product cures
Allergroom shampoo doesn’t contain soap, making it ideal for pets with skin sensitivity or allergies. Besides keeping the coat clean and shiny, the solution also helps inhibit the growth of yeast and bacteria on the animal’s skin by forming a protective layer over it. It can be used in horses, dogs, and cats of all ages.
Allergroom is beneficial for pets with various conditions including; allergies, pyoderma, and cryptococcosis.
Like with humans, pets can also develop allergies once their immune system starts to have a negative reaction to common substances in food or the environment. These substances are not normally dangerous, but can cause mild to severe reactions in pets with allergies. Symptoms commonly experienced by pets with the condition include; itchiness, eye discharge, teary eyes, chronic ear infections, loose stools, breathing difficulties, sore throat, excessively licking/chewing at feet or other parts of the body, and skin irritation/inflammation. Infections caused by bacteria or yeast can also develop secondary to the condition.
Pyoderma, better known as a bacterial skin infection, is an extremely common condition in canines, although it can also occur in cats and horses. The bacteria enter the body when the skin is broken, which is usually caused by wounds or injuries. The condition causes symptoms such as; skin pustules (lumps filled with pus), alopecia (hair loss), itchiness, skin inflammation, scabs, and redness. Antibiotics are usually enough to treat the disease, but it can lead to serious complications if prompt treatment is not provided.
Cryptococcosis, or a fungal infection caused by Cryptococcus, develops when yeast from rotting bird feces or food is inhaled. It’s most common in cats, but can also affect dogs and horses. The symptoms vary, as the yeast can travel to many organs including the eyes, lungs, and brain. Common symptoms of cryptococcosis include; fever, lethargy, decreased activity, coordination issues, tremors, poor sight, skin lesions, inflamed lymph nodes, vomiting, loose stools, decreased hunger, and mucus discharge. In some cases, the animal may only have mild symptoms such as lethargy and fever for several weeks before more obvious signs of infection begin to show, while for others, the onset of the disease is rapid.
Common skin conditions seen in pets could that could benefit from a hypoallergenic shampoo such as Allergroom include; allergic contact dermatitis, ringworm, flea allergy, mange (demodectic and sarcoptic), atopy, fungal infection, and pyoderma.
