    "Absolutely AMAZING! a.k.a. "Liquid Gold",..."
    Pros - Spray gel stays on area of wound...Works miracles!
    Cons - Liquid may run and not stay on wound area, but it still works. Might need to apply more often though.
    My rooster skinned my (his) hen accidentally when attempting to fertilize her eggs. His claw ripped her open below her wing just above her drumstick on her left side. I could see her "PERDUES" (raw meat). I rinsed her wound out with saline, spray Vetericyn into her 4"x3" wound, and bandaged her up by wrapping her with a roll of gauze. I put a dog sweater on her to keep her from moving her wing and to not mess with her bandage. I kept her housed in my "hospital" brooder to keep her away from my roo and other hens as she healed from the inside out. I treated her with Vetericyn once daily directly into her wound and redid her bandage until I could no longer get Vetericyn into her wound. Her healing time was about 6-7 weeks. Amazing "Gracie" is doing marvelous and is back to business laying yummy green eggs (yes, she's an Ameraucana). Mind you, she was not put back into the same pen with the roo. Thank you Vetericyn!!!

    "Awesome Stuff"
    Pros - Easy to use spray bottle
    Cons - Pricey, but will last a very long time
    This stuff has saved lives. Most recently, it saved the life of one of my hens that poked out her eye. I sprayed this stuff in the socket for a week and that is all it took. My bird maybe missing one eye, but she is alive and well and gets along fine in the flock.

    "THE Miracle Spray"
    Pros - Everything!
    Cons - Nothing!
    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!

    Carolyn252- I was wondering who would notice! LOL It was a dog. It's still a mystery where she got the cut in her abdomen- we scoured the back yard looking for sharp objects, but honestly the slices looked like they were made with a surgical instrument. Talk about scary!!

    Sunnysimplelife- Vetericyn is amazing stuff. When I have a wound on my own body it's one of the three things I swear by- Vetericyn, MicroTek, and Neosporin. It's the best at getting rid of difficult wounds, especially those that are likely to leave scars. Love love love it! I've never had a problem with using it on myself- I prefer it over anything the doctor could 'recommend'.

    BackyardFarmMom- That's the Vetericyn Opthamolic, I have two bottles of it floating around here. It's basically the same stuff in a gel form. I think you get more for your money in the bigger spray bottle, but then again the gel form stays on longer and really does a good job at coating the entire surface of the eye. The directions for use are probably vague because regardless of how you apply it, it works. LOL I've used the Vetericyn Opthamolic quite a few times, even on myself (I have contacts, so I need to take extra special care to avoid any sort of infection or else I'll be forced to walk around partially blind for a while, or in the worst case scenario an infection could do permanent damage to my eye so my opthamologist says). It's great stuff to have handy just in case you do have an animal with a damaged/infected eye.

    They have it in a small squeeze bottle too for eye problems... I almost bought some but I felt the directions on it were very vague... I will have to get some and see now! Thanks for the recomendation!

    I agree with your review. I bought ours for the chickens but our cat had a horrible bite wound very infected over Memorial Weekend. I remembered I had the spray. Starting using 3-4 times a day and sprayed right into the large puncture wounds after we drained them. Within 2-3 days looks so good and like you said it is like the holes just close up with this stuff. After about 4-5 days we could not even see the holes. I swear by this stuff. I am tempted to try it on us.

    Maybe I missed it, but I can't find any mention of what sort of animal it was that had the "worst wound" on the "holiday weekend". Horse? dog? You state that the animal was pregnant at the time, so I know you're not talking about a chicken.
    Just curious.
