Sulfodene (for dogs) Ingredients Uncovered (but mystery not solved)
by Rob T.

Backstory:  Sulfodene (for dogs) Worked for Her

From the FDA website: Sulfodene® Medication for Dogs active ingredient: 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole. Interestingly, 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole sodium is an accelerant used in processing rubber products and has been studied because it causes contact dermatitis in many people upon exposure. Is it the same thing? Hard to say.


Ed’s Response:  Thanks Rob.  Now we know the active ingredient in this product which, as reported by Katherine S. last month, completely cleared her for at least 8 months.  Surely the form of 2-mercaptobenzothazole in Sulfodene isn’t the ~~sodium version that causes contact dermatitis! 

I’m due to take my cats to the vet for their annuals in a couple of months.  If I can remember, I’ll try to ask about Sulfodene while I’m there.  -Ed
