F10 Germicidal Treatment Shampoo – Based on F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant, F10 Germicidal Treatment Shampoo is a safe and highly effective product for use on dogs, cats and horses as a skin treatment against bacterial and fungal infections. As such it is an excellent product for treating common conditions and preventing re-infection of pathogens like ringworm (Microsporum and Trichophyton), Staphylococcal bacterial infections and “hot spots”, as well as yeast infections.
Due to the fact that F10 Germicidal Treatment Shampoo is based on the F10 Disinfectant core actives, it is also unique in that it will effectively kill Canine Parvovirus particles on dog costs, so can be used to wash and decontaminate recovering animals before they are transported home. This will help prevent other animals from potentially becoming infected with CPV. Other medicated shampoos are primarliy designed to counter bacterial and/or fungal conditions and do not offer this additional benefit.
A dermatological preparation effective against bacteria and fungi as a skin treatment and to prevent re-infestation in dogs, cats and horses. For example the following bacterial conditions: (Pyotraumatic Dermatitis, Superficial Pyoderma, Skin Fold Dermatitis), yeast (Malasseziasis) and fungal conditions (Dermatophytosis).
The antimicrobial action of the preparation is based upon the proprietary branded F10 compound. The mechanism of action of F10 is derived from those of each component taken separately, in addition to those due to the additive synergistic action of all components combined. At the concentrations in the product F10 has been assessed as giving a >log5 reduction in microbial counts against gram positive and gram negative bacteria, fungi, yeasts and moulds. The group of keratinophylic fungi is very large, but only two genera, known as dermatophytes, are known to cause disease (“ringworm”) in animals. The genera involved are Microsporum spp, and Trichophyton spp. F10 Germicidal Treatment Shampoo was found to be effective in a contact time of 10 – 15 minutes, however three repeat treatments applied every other day is the recommended treatment protocol.
