Traditional Mediterranean plants: characterization and use of an essential oils mixture to treat Malassezia otitis externa in atopic dogs
TLDR
This study confirms recent findings suggesting a multifactorial alternative approach for the management of canine Malassezia otitis, and indicates the number of blastospores did not decrease after all treatments. Expand
Is topical treatment with Crystavet® an effective treatment of Malassezia overgrowth in dogs?
TLDR
Topical treatment with Crystavet (1% hydrogen peroxide) is effective and safe for the treatment of localized Malassezia overgrowth in dogs and the results suggest that the antifungal efficacy of 1% Hydrogen peroxide is similar to that of 4% chlorhexidine for MalasseZia species. Expand
Malassezia Yeasts in Veterinary Dermatology: An Updated Overview
TLDR
Historically, wild-type Malassezia isolates from dogs and cats were typically susceptible to azoles, with the exception of fluconazole, but emerging azole resistance in field strains has recently been associated with either mutations or quadruplication of the ERG11 gene. Expand
Antifungal Effect of Selected Essential Oils on Malassezia pachydermatis Growth
TLDR
Bergamot, lavender, juniper, cedar, sage, tea-tree, grapefruit, pine, chamomile and yarrow essential oils were not able to form inhibition zones as defined in the methodology used (greater or equal to 15 mm) in all concentrations used and were considered ineffective. Expand
Biology, diagnosis and treatment of Malassezia dermatitis in dogs and cats Clinical Consensus Guidelines of the World Association for Veterinary Dermatology.
TLDR
There has been a remarkable expansion of knowledge on Malassezia yeasts and their role in animal disease, particularly since the early 1990's, and MalasseZia dermatitis in dogs and cats has evolved from a disease of obscurity and controversy on its existence to now being a routine diagnosis in general veterinary practice.

TLDR
A herbal mixture composed of chemically defined essential oils of Litsea cubeba, Illicium verum, Foeniculum vulgare, and Pelargonium graveolens showed a good antifungal activity against arthrospores present in infected hairs, promising for a further application of the mixture as an alternative tool or as an adjuvant in the environmental control of feline microsporosis.
