Purpose of study

The purpose of this clinical study is to investigate shampoo and mousse treatments to alleviate symptoms in dogs with one of three dermatological conditions:

  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Pyoderma (germ overgrowth)
  • Seborrhea

Eligibility criteria

CALM: study for dogs with atopic dermatitis flare up

Eligible dogs

  • Dogs previously diagnosed with atopic dermatitis
  • Currently having a flare up of their symptoms

Exclusions

  • Lactating or pregnant dogs
  • Dogs with any other itchy skin condition
  • Any start up or change in current medications used to manage their atopic dermatitis
  • Any major disease that may interact with atopic dermatitis

PYO: study for dogs with pyoderma

Eligible dogs

  • Dogs requiring treatment for superficial skin infection or overgrowth based on clinical signs and examination of cells (cytology)

Exclusions

  • Lactating or pregnant dogs
  • Currently on antibiotics
  • Deep pyoderma or parasitic infection
  • Any major disease that may interact with pyoderma

SEB: study for dogs with seborrhea

Eligible dogs

  • Dogs with dry or greasy seborrhea

Exclusions

  • Lactating or pregnant dogs
  • Dogs with pyoderma, yeast or parasitic infections
  • Any start up or change in current medications used to manage their seborrhea
  • Any major disease that may interact with seborrhea

Procedures

Each dog will complete 3 visits to the Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) in a 21-day period for exams, assessments, and sample collection (skin cytology). Owners will apply shampoo and mousse products at home on a specific schedule. Owners will have forms to fill out, at home and in the clinic. We will also photograph the dog’s skin lesions.

Costs

Once enrolled, the study will pay for the investigational products and the costs of the visits listed above.
