HI, I am hopeless at chemistry and need some advice. I work as a vet.
I have a dog who I have prescribed a 4% solution of chlorhexidine to shampoo over his body. The thing is that this particular preparation does not lather well. I tend to suggest using another basic shampoo that has a moisurising base to mix with it, so the chlorhexidine lathers a bit more and the skin can stay moisturised. The thing is, if I mix 2 capfuls or however many of the chlorhexidine with a little bit of the other shampoo. will this dilute the chlorhex to a lower solution, say 3%, or will it still stay at 4%. Sorry, probably a stupid question.
Thanks in advance
