Sulfodene: Medication for Dogs

Nov 5, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:First aid for scrapes/abrasions, doesn't burn as bad as alcohol or fizz like hydrogen peroxide.

Cons:It's greasy (watch your carpets); smells like paint thinner.

The Bottom Line: Sulfodene works great as long as your dog does not smell it coming!


Sulfodene is a medication for dogs (any breed, size, or age because no restrictions are labeled--however, I would not use this product on puppies under six months of age, as with most any product) that boasts to be an aid in the treatment of eczema, moist dermatitis (skin inflammations in localized areas--do not use on "half" of your dog), and hot spots. It is also used in the treatment of scratching, hair loss, and redness as well as being a first aid for abrasions and scrapes.

Sulfodene is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and is made in the U.S.A. (yay!!!).

The active ingredient in Sulfodene is 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole. An inactive ingredient is Isopropyl Alcohol in 2.0%. Not much "ouch" on the sting scale. How do I know? I tried the product on myself and felt very little burning upon application to broken skin.

To use Sulfodene, the instructions state to "clip hair from around affected areas and apply...freely with an applicator such as cotton...to affected areas." There are many people who prefer not to clip their pet's fur, and if you can get the hair lifted up in order to apply the liquid, then that would work also, but not very well if you are applying Sulfodene to a large patch of skin.

Sulfodene smells AWFUL!!! Yes, it smells like paint thinner or the like. My dogs run in the opposite direction of Sulfodene when they smell this product, and I don't blame them.

Sulfodene is greasy, but only for about thirty minutes until the skin absorbs all the medication. You will want to keep your dog from rubbing around on your carpets to prevent stains on your floors. Naturally, try to keep your pet from scratching the spot where the medicine was applied so that Sulfodene does not get into your dog's eyes, ears, nose or mouth.

Sulfodene seems to work very well, and I plan on using Sulfodene instead of hydrogen peroxide on my two labradors from now on.
