Exclamation FDA Cautions Pet Owners On Use of Unapproved Pet Shampoos

FDA Issues Caution to Pet Owners with the Use of an Unapproved Pet Shampoo Product


May 13, 2011

The FDAs Center for Veterinary Medicine is alerting pet owners to use caution with the use of an unapproved animal drug product, Douxo Seborrhea Shampoo (0.1% phytosphingosine), distributed by Sogeval Laboratories, Inc. of Coppell, Texas after recently receiving a report of the death of a woman associated with the use of the product on her dog.

The March adverse event report describes a woman with severe, preexisting asthma who had a sudden, severe asthma attack and died while bathing a dog using the product, Douxo Seborrhea Shampoo. A few days later, another asthmatic family member bathed the dog using the same product and experienced a mild asthma attack but recovered.

FDA is advising consumers with asthma or other respiratory conditions to consider consulting with their physicians prior to use of this product.

FDA is currently investigating this serious issue and will provide additional information as appropriate.

Thank you, very scary! I have asthma badly. Yikes! Weird story though, your relative dies while bathing a dog and a few days later you decide to wash the dog again? What a strange thing.

? The dog was dirty. The first bath wasn't finished due to an asthma attack, so a few days later the dog was still dirty.

Or itchy cuz all the soap wasn't rinsed out the first time...

Plus you don't always link cause to death right away. Remember the Tylenol scare? Someone laced some of the capsules with cyanide, I believe--and some unsuspecting soul bought a bottle. They had a headache, took one of the tainted pills and died. A few days later, a grieving family member took another to ease their headache and also died. They didn't discover the crime till after both had died.

It's not a normal thing to die of an asthma attack from a shampoo, so there wouldn't have been any reason not to use it again... Thank dawg the relative recovered!!!
