DioxiGuard 86 is a single complex application of the non-toxic, highly effective chlorine dioxide. It is a “light” shampoo that reaches infected skin quickly. It cleans and disinfects the coat while it kills bacteria, viruses and ringworm spores. It can safely and quickly be used on animals that may have been exposed to diseases at a show, in a pet store, where contagious animals have been, or any place that causes exposure. It kills ringworm, bacteria, viruses and fungi before it is able to get hold and spread. For ringworm infection, bathe animal 3 times a week until skin shows healing. Follow with weekly baths.
