Let's face it if you have pets then they are like small children and they are going to get into some messes and get some scratches, scrapes and cuts. If you are like me and other responsible pet owners you have a first aid kit just for your 4 legged members of your family. This wound wash is amazing and it works great and keeps your pets injury from becoming infected and it does not sting or burn causing discomfort to your pet. It helps clean and treat tons of issues your pet may get into. Our small pup got an old shingle nail stuck in the paw and once we got it removed we washed it out with this cleansing spray and called the vet who informed us just to keep an eye on it. While using it on our pup she did not mind it at all. And it healed up just fine after a few days of cleaning. I highly recommend this to everyone who has cats or dogs because it can be used on both. We are glad we found such a wonderful product. You will not be disappointed and like I said it is a great addition to any pet first aid kit.
My senior dog has old hind leg injuries that cause her to drag it sometimes, and she's banged up or scraped her pads a time or two. She doesn't like me touching the raw spot, understandably, so this has been great as a first step in cleaning it before topping off with my vet-prescribed wound gel.
She does flinch a bit on application but it seems to be more from the surprise of the spray than the effects of the contents, because she relaxes once the spraying is done.
Bottom line: I feel much better about this than plain water or peroxide for wound prep and the only animal I've used it on so far tolerates it well, so this is proving a useful addition to the pet meds cabinet and we'll be keeping it on hand (mine has an expiration date of about 18 months from delivery).
My Belgian Shepherd gets sore spots on his feet sometimes as a result of having Degenerative Myelopathy. This spray has been freakishly effective at preventing infections, while quickly reducing inflammation and irritation.
My dog doesn't care for having it sprayed on, but he doesn't resist when I hold a paw to spray an area. So I'm guessing it might sting just a little bit, but not enough to worry about.
The sprayer is great, too, offering you two different spray options: single stream, or spray. I tend to use the single stream option more often than not since I'm usually spraying on small wounds as opposed to larger areas.
But within hours, this spray takes a red, swollen, and infected area back down to a pale pink that is clearly less irritating to my dog.
Definitely promotes healing for a number of different situations.
Pricey, but its made in the U.S.A. and it works really well.
We're dealing with hot spots here and I used this to clean between med re application. It worked fine and didn't bother my dog.
