    Some people use it as a preventative for all kinds of things, including blackhead. I have a bag, and have only used it when treating a pigeon for canker... It made no difference.

    Is there any science behind it or is it mainly wives tales?

    I think there might be some science, and one of my vets did suggest it. There's another, it's called Histosat-50, but don't know if that make that any longer.
