Topical therapy (locally acting) is extremely important in the management of many dermatological conditions. Several formulations are available for the prescribing veterinary surgeon: shampoo, lotion, spray, ointment, cream, milk and gel. Choice varies according to the case and must take into account the nature and extent of the lesions, animal’s temperament and owner time available. Shampoos are nowadays widely used by veterinary dermatologists.

TLDR
Of the commonly used, topical antifungal products used in this study, lime sulfur and enilconazole solutions were superior in inhibiting fungal growth; no growth occurred on fungal cultures after two treatments with either product.

TLDR
A 2 per cent miconazole/2 per cent chlorhexidine shampoo was used in two groups of Persian cats infected with Microsporum canis, and no statistically significant difference was found for time to mycological cure, although the lesion scores in the second group decreased significantly more quickly than those of the first group.
Inability of two topical treatments to influence the course of experimentally induced dermatophytosis in cats.
TLDR
It is revealed that this topical treatment regimen with chlorhexidine or glyceryl monolaurate is ineffective against M canis infection in cats.
Comparison of two shampoos for treatment of Malassezia pachydermatis-associated seborrhoeic dermatitis in basset hounds.
TLDR
The results indicate that seborrhoeic dermatitis in basset hounds is often associated with elevated cutaneous populations of M pachydermatis and bacteria, and that the miconazole-chlorhexidine shampoo is more effective than the selenium sulphide product for the treatment for this disease.
Prophylactic efficacy of four antibacterial shampoos against Staphylococcus intermedius in dogs.
TLDR
All shampoos had significant prophylactic activity against Staphylococcus intermedius over 5 hours and the shampoo containing benzoyl peroxide was determined to have the greatest efficacy among the products tested.
Clinical and non-invasive evaluation of 12% ammonium lactate emulsion for the treatment of dry skin in atopic and non-atopic subjects.
TLDR
Treatment with the test emulsion significantly reduced the severity scores for dryness, desquamation and pruritus when measured 15 days later and showed that non-invasive techniques are excellent complementary tools in clinical studies.
