    I know a lot of people use blue kot, but I was wondering if anyone has ever used granulex wound spray. I don't have blue kot at this time but I do have granulex. One of my chickens had a wound that's not too deep but it does need some protection from infection. I have been using neosporin but I was thinking this granulex might be better. It was banned for a while in the USA which means it worked really well and it's now back and available.

    It looks fine to me, and would probably be good for wounds that may have necrotic areas. It is expensive compared to Neosporin and BluKote. It is used in humans for pressure sores. Here is a bit about it:
    Granulex V Aerosol Spray



    (Mylan) Granulex V Aerosol Spray helps treat and heal external wounds such as cuts, burns, abrasions, and lacerations in dogs, cats, horses, and cattle. Granulex V assists the healing process by facilitating the removal of necrotic tissue, exudate, and organic debris. Apply twice daily or as often as necessary. Wound may be left unbandaged or a wet dressing may be applied. When applied to sensitive areas, a temporary stinging sensation may be noticed.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]Alushield is another product that is used for wound protection, and contains aluminum powder. It is only a barrier, not an antiseptic.

    Thanks. I can only apply it after she goes into the coop at night. She is an EE and is at the bottom of the pecking order so she is very skittish. The wound is at the tip of the tail so its mostly fatty tissue. Is that an area for necrotic tissue? Thanks again for your rapid reply.
