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

May 13, 2011

The FDA’s 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.

A Fabulous Pet Shampoo from a company that has never been involved in a recall ever:

Now is the time to pamper your precious pup with this Revitalizing Shampoo. The revitalizing botanical infusion of organic rosemary and sage along with nourishing essences of coconut and palm kernel oil will naturally cleanse and beautify your pet’s coat as the luscious scents of mango and kiwi mingle with energizing citrus notes to bring out natural shine. Its moisture activated odor-fighters react immediately to absorb and neutralize tough pet odors. I love this shampoo, I use it in my grooming business. The dog's coat look and smell great. This refreshing sent lasts for weeks which owners love.
