May 13, 2011

The FDAs Center for Veterinary Medicine is alerting pet owners to use
caution with the use of an unapproved animal drug product, Douxo
Seborrhea Shampoo (0.1% phytosphingosine), distributed by Sogeval
Laboratories, Inc. of Coppell, Texas after recently receiving a report
of the death of a woman associated with the use of the product on her dog.

asthma who had a sudden, severe asthma attack and died
while bathing a dog using the product, Douxo Seborrhea Shampoo. A few days
later, another asthmatic family member bathed the dog using the
same product and experienced a mild asthma attack but recovered.
