These Malaseb Pledgets Medicated Pads For Dogs, Cats and Horses were recommended by our vet because my older dog was suffering from a skin infection. She has had many skin problems over the years unfortunately. These pledgets (they are similar in look to acne medicated pads) are for infections responsive to Miconazole and Chlorhexidine Gluconate. My older dog had an infection at the base of her tail under her skin folds. We were to clean it with these pledgets once a day. There were 60 pledgets per jar.
I have to say these worked really well for her infection. I liked the fact that it was a pad and the medication was already on it so all I had to do was pull her skin back, rub the pad on the area for a few seconds and then throw it away. After a short period of time, I could see her infection going away. These were used in conjunction with a medicated shampoo for her skin as well. There are still some pledgets left in the jar and I used them recently on her foot. She was having a hard time walking and I saw that her skin was inflamed on the bottom of her foot. I didn't know exactly what kind of infection she had but I thought I would start using one pledget a day just to see what happened and guess what? After about four days, the swelling had gone down significantly and she was able to walk without any problems! Her foot is now completely healed. It saved me a trip to the vet. I highly recommend Malaseb Pledgets.
