Where do I begin about Vetericyn?
I recommend it to everyone, because it is quite literally unbeatable.
Vetericyn Spray is the only thing I trust on wounds. I've seen it make pretty gorey wounds vanish in days! Vetericyn does not sting, stick, or smell. It is completely clear and non-oily, as if you were spraying water onto the wound. It doesn't contain any antibiotics, yet it is strong enough to kill MRSA (the drug-resistant flesh-eating bacteria that lurks around hospitals). It also has Sodium Chlorite in it, which is known to cure all sorts of diseases when taken internally and applied externally. Because Sodium Chlorite is not yet "approved" by the FDA (because it is an amazing substance that actually WORKS), they do not market Vetericyn to be used on humans, only animals.
I trust vetericyn to clean and mend wounds of all shapes and sizes, from slices to puncture wounds. I use it on my dogs, my horses, my chickens, and even myself because it is amazingly safe. I remember the worst wound I treated with Vetericyn occured on a holiday weekend, right when my car was in the shop (of course). I called the vet and explained the situation, but since my car was being repaired I wasn't able to get there. It looked like someone took a scalpel and sliced her skin repeatedly all the way into the abdomen- it was BAD! To make matters worse, she was pregnant at the time, which meant I was limited in treatment methods. I thought that the giant gaping wound would never heal without medical attention, and was sure that it required stitches. Meanwhile, being stuck at the house, I cleaned the area, and soaked the wound with Vetericyn. I continued to do so 2 or 3 times a day. She didn't seem like she was in pain, which eased my mind. I've taken care of pretty sick animals before, so I knew that as long as she was stable and the wound was kept immaculate, we would be alright for a few days until my car was ready.
As I used the Vetericyn, I noticed that the skin literally began to pull itself together and mend itself, starting from the edges of the slice. By day 3 (Monday) it was totally mended, at which point I called the vet back and said nevermind- problem miraculously solved! After a week's time there was barely a scar to show.
Every time I use Vetericyn, all I get are great results. There are other things on the market, which may "help", but there's nothing like Vetericyn. My can of Blu-Kote is now mostly used for marking and identifying animals (lol) because I know that #1 it's very messy, #2 it takes FOREVER to dry, #3 its obvious especially when you're just trying to make a wound 'dissapear', and #4 it doesn't do as good a job at healing the wound as Vetericyn! I also have this other wound spray, but it is NOT safe around the eyes, probably not safe when ingested (so the animal has to be restrained or somehow prevented from accessing the wound), and it smells AWFUL! It's also goopy and sticky, so you always have to run and wash your hands after applying it.
So for me it's Vetericyn all the way. Except for skin irritations or infections, in which case I break out my MicroTek!
