Abstract:
Veterinary practitioners frequently encounter various types of canine dermatological disorders in their clinical practice. The incidence and prevalence of dermatological disorders vary greatly at different places; however, the treatment of such diseases is costly and usually take weeks to months for complete clinical recovery. Therefore, there is a need to explore every possible aspect and generate preventive strategies. Commercially available formulations containing a complex mixture of components suitable to maintain healthy skin can also be explored while looking for preventive solutions. With a similar view, one commercially available topical spot-on formulation (viz., DermSpot Spot-on by TTK) containing a skin lipid complex, essential fatty acids, an anti-hair fall complex, emollients (including Aloe vera extract), antioxidant and biotin was evaluated in dogs in-vivo to observe its effectiveness in prevention of dermatological disorders. The spot-on formulation effectively prevented development of clinical dermatological disorders up to 30 days when used with a suitable protocol. The present paper highlights different aspects of in-vivo evaluation and a disquisition on composition of the formulation. Similar investigations are encouraged on a larger scale including a greater number of dogs in future.
