Skin conditions vary in their presentation and severity in our cats and dogs and can be chronic and very frustrating. We are so glad to be able to offer a new product line to our clients which we feel supersedes many of medicine's previous approaches to topical skin support. Douxo is a product line that is produced by a company called Sogeval.
This veterinary line was introduced to the US market in 2006 but prior to that was being used in Europe with good success to support a variety of different skin ailments. The common thread in almost all of the products in this line is a molecule called phytosphingosine. It is a naturally occurring molecule in the outermost layer of the skin that has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties as well as controlling excess oil production and crusting and scaling of the skin. This line of shampoos, sprays and spot ons carry supportive levels of phytosphingosines to help replenish this building block in the skin when there is a break down in the skins integrity.
To learn more about this exciting new product line please feel free to call us at the clinic. Several of the staff members here have already used these products on their own pets with good success and would be glad to discuss any concerns you may have about your pets skin. You can also get product information on the Sogeval website www.sogevalus.com
