Silver sulfadiazine cream for dogs – What is it used for?
By the side of a road in India, in a market in South Africa, on a beach in Australia, on the side of a highway in England, in a field in America, the old familiar yellow-green bottle on the side of a country road and the old familiar green sign in the market place say “SPF 10”, “SPF 15”, “SPF 45”, “SPF 60” and so on. This is the very same product called sulfadiazine cream or sulfa-based cream which has been on the market for over 50 years now. Its name was changed to sulfadiazine cream by the addition of an “i”, “i” standing for “intravenous”. As an oral medication sulfadiazine cream was originally used to treat infections like chicken pox and syphilis. It was used extensively for these infections until antibiotics came into the scene. Sulfadiazine cream could also be applied for skin infections and sores. Since antibiotics are a much better medicine for these infections sulfadiazine cream was gradually replaced with a new class of medicine which was introduced on the market called antibiotics.
Today sulfadiazine cream is no longer used in treatment of skin infections and sores. Sulfadiazine cream is used for a different purpose. If sulfadiazine cream is applied for dogs it is used to treat a different type of infection than when it was originally introduced. Sulfadiazine cream for dogs has been used by veterinarians and pet owners to treat the bacterial infection of a wound that occurs when dogs lick or bite at their own or other parts of the body. This infection is called mange. This article will describe this infection and tell how to treat it.
Mange is a common type of skin disease in dogs. It is usually caused by a parasitic mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. The mite lays its eggs under the skin, which hatch and the larvae penetrate into the skin. These larvae grow and mature and create lesions which then look like small sores or bumps on the dog’s body. Mange is more common in the warmer seasons of the year. It is very common in puppies because they are still developing their immune systems. The most common form of mange is sarcoptic mange.
Signs of mange are usually noticed by the owner of a dog showing up with lesions on the dog’s skin. The lesions are usually seen on the face, ears, the groin and the skin of the tail. Some dog owners notice mange first when the dog begins to act strangely. In other cases the dog owner notices mange after his dog is treated with a topical antibiotic like sulfadiazine cream. Sulfadiazine cream is the only treatment for mange.
A dog with mange usually shows signs of being in pain and is often itchy and agitated. Sulfadiazine cream is not known to cause any harm to dogs. Sulfadiazine cream has been used by veterinarians and pet owners for many years and many dogs have shown no adverse reactions to it. It is not toxic to dogs and so can be used on puppies and adult dogs. If applied properly sulfadiazine cream should not cause any harm to the dog. It should also not cause any harm to the dog’s owner if used as instructed. If your dog is having skin problems it is highly recommended that you consult your veterinarian.
The following symptoms of mange will indicate that your dog is showing signs of mange. These are not the only symptoms.

The second step will be to apply sulfadiazine cream. This is the topical medicine that will treat the skin lesions.
A dog with mange will show symptoms of being itchy and agitated. This can usually be noticed when the dog’s owner observes the dog scratching or biting the affected areas of the skin. When a dog is itchy the skin usually becomes swollen. A dog with mange may also be lethargic. The lethargy is usually not noticeable by the owner of the dog.
