What is Mal-A-Ket?

Mal-A-Ket is a topical product line for dogs and cats containing chlorhexidine, ketoconazole, and acetic acid. They are great for treating intertriginous (where skin touches skin) and interdigital dermatitis (inbetween the toes), hot spots, and other skin conditions. The line contains a shampoo and wipes. The TrizEDTA version also contains tromethamine and the product line includes a flush and shampoo.

 

How should the Mal-A-Ket products be used?

Mal-A-Ket Wipes:

Apply to affected area as directed by your pet's veterinarian.

Mal-A-Ket Shampoo:

SHAKE WELL. Apply to wet coat, rub onto skin and haircoat to create a rich lather. Allow shampoo to remain on skin and coat for 5-10 minutes. Rinse well. Use initially 2-4 times per week for 4 weeks, then reduce to once per week or as directed by the veterinarian.

Mal-A-Ket TrizEDTA Flush:

SHAKE WELL. For use as an ear flush: apply to the ear canal and gently, but firmly, massage the base of the ear. For use on skin: squeeze flush over affected area. Use a cotton ball to remove excess solution. Repeat as necessary or as directed by your pet's veterinarian. Close cap tightly.

Mal-A-Ket TrizEDTA Spray Conditioner:

SHAKE WELL. For dry application - apply directly to skin and haircoat and allow to dry. For wet application or after shampooing - remove excess moisture and apply directly to skin and haircoat. Use as often as desired or as directed by the veterinarian.

  • Q:

    I am supposed to apply the wipes between my dog's toes for yeast, as per my vet. She licks her paws I am worried about her ingesting this product. Please advise.
    Asked on 10/9/2014 by dolly from Pennsylvania, United States

    • A:

      Dolly,

      When using Mal-A-Ket it is important to minimize ingestion of the residue left behind by the wipes. Mal-A-Ket wipes contain 1% ketoconazole, 2% chlorhexidine, and 2% acetic acid. Per manufacturer you should prevent your pet from licking the area of application because ingestion can be harmful. If you are concerned about the amount of product your pet may ingest, your pet’s veterinarian can help you choose an alternate product for your pet, or will advise you on ways to prevent ingestion following application.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    We started using these wipes one week ago for a Yeast infection inbetween my Aussie mix's toes....They DO seem to be improving, but I'm wondering how long it will take to cure the issue....I know it depends on the severity...She was not licking her paws.

      Baytril is a medication that is commonly used to treat bacterial and/or fungal infections in the ear. The veterinarian would have determined the type of infection, if present, and the drug(s) that are able to treat or prevent the infection. We recommend following the veterinarian’s instructions and to contact your veterinarian for further advice regarding this therapy.

  • Q:

    Can I use these under my dog's lips? They look all red and irritated ( kinda chapped looking ). We use these in the folds of his face and work great, but wasn't sure about this application. Thanks!

      Jennifer,

      Mal-A-Ket wipes can be used under the lips but should not be used in the mouth. It’s important to minimize ingestion of the residue left by the wipes. If your dog’s symptoms do not improve or get worse please contact your veterinarian.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    We are currently using Mal-a-ket wipes on the fold above our bulldog's tail. It is red with an odor & some of the hair in the area is coming out. This is the first time this has happened and I wanted to know if this will help clear it up.
    Asked on 10/15/2013 by Debbie

    • A:

      Debbie,

      Mal-A-Ket wipes contain antibacterial and antifungal agents useful for cleansing areas prone to infections.  The severity of an infection will determine if Mal-A-Ket wipes can be used for treatment.  Since you are noticing visual and odor changes to this area, please speak with your dog's veterinarian to determine if a more aggressive treatment is needed to clear the infection.  Ma-A-Ket wipes may be used as an adjunct with oral therapy and may be recommended for long term use to help prevent future infections.

      Thank you,

    Do you know anything about these wipes and using them with dogs and demodetitic mange?
    Asked on 9/11/2013 by Kacie

    • A:

      Kacie,

      Mal-a-ket wipes are used for cleansing and degreasing and have antimicrobial and antifungal properties.  Please consult your veterinarian for the best option to treat your pet's demodectic mange as treatment choice depends on location and severity of this condition. 

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Hi there, we have a dog with cancer who has external tumors that break open and bleed. We are currently using chlorhexadine to clean but I was wondering if these could be used as well? Thanks! Jane
    Asked on 8/4/2013 by jane

    1 answer

    • A:

      Jane,

      Mal-A-Ket wipes also contain chlorhexidine in addition to acetic acid and ketoconazole, both of which are used to further prevent infection from bacteria and fungi. Whereas chlorhexidine alone would be a general antiseptic and antibacterial. I would caution the possibility of your pet licking the area if you were to use the wipes because ingestion could cause some adverse effects, however this would be a question for your pet's veterinarian since he or she will know more specifically about your pet's disease state and what would be an appropriate agent to use.

      Thank you,
