Performance of the DOUXO® S3 SEB shampoo and subsequent mousse applications (CEVA, France) was assessed over three weeks in 18 seborrheic dogs in a prospective, controlled study. The protocol combining shampoo and leave-on mousse applications resulted in a significant clinical improvement,  the maintenance of skin hydration, initial decrease and further restoration in hair lipids.


Seborrhea is frequent and time-consuming1
Shampoos are often effective2 but
• procedure takes time
• are often hard to realize
• a combination of different types is often necessary
Ophytrium3, a purified natural ingredient, has a high tolerance and a simultaneous threefold action on the skin barrier: it strengthens the mechanical barrier, limits the adhesion and biofilm formation and soothes the skin.
Seboliance4, a natural plant extract, has seboregulating properties.


Evaluate the protocol combining applications of one shampoo and subsequent mousses containing Ophytrium and Seboliance (DOUXO® S3 SEB, Ceva Santé Animale, Libourne, France) in seborrheic dogs on:
• tolerance
• performance: clinical score (CS), pruritus, skin surface cytology, natural moisturizing factors content (NMFs), hair surface lipids content (HL)



18 adult dogs (griffons, Bruno du Jura and Bleu de Gascogne)
• idiopathic greasy seborrhea
• same diet/environment prior and during the study
• randomly allocated in placebo (plain water – 6 dogs) or test (12 dogs) group
