|3% Chlorhexidine Gluconate||A proven antibacterial with activity against gram positive bacteria ie. Staphylococcus intermedius and gram negative bacteria|
|Non-toxic, non-irritating, with a 4 day residual activity|
The Chlorhexidine inPYOHEXworks by binding to hair and penetrating the follicle via a wicking action down the hair shaft, to eliminate bacteria in situ. Chlorhexidine kills bacteria by disrupting the cell membrane and precipitating the cell contents.
PYOHEXbinds strongly to the skin and hair, resulting in a 4 day residual action. As Chlorhexidine is poorly absorbed through the skin,PYOHEXis completely safe.
PYOHEXcontains an advanced surfactant base that removes abnormal lipids that occur due to bacterial lipases.PYOHEXdoes not dry or strip the coat of essential lipids needed to prevent transepidermal water loss, a process that promotes infection.
PYOHEXis pH neutral, specifically designed for canine skin.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
First wet the coat, then spongePYOHEXonto the animal's coat and allow to stand for 10 minutes then rinse thoroughly. This is the minimum contact time to ensure antimicrobial activity. Bath twice weekly until symptoms abate and then weekly or as directed by your veterinarian.
In vivo studies have revealed that a 3% Chlorhexidine solution is the optimum concentration for use as an antibacterial on skin.
Independent studies have shown that Chlorhexidine is the most efficacious antibacterial, especially against Staphylococcus intermedius, when compared to other commonly used antibacterials such as Ethyl Lactate and Benzoyl
