Vetericyn Spray is a safe wound spray for animals and poultry for injuries that are exposed. This might be due to a an eye infection, feather picking, predator or pecking order attack, operation, mating injuries, post-op, flying into a fence, etc.
There is no egg withhold with Vetericyn Wound Spray like there can be with the 'purple' or 'blue' sprays such as Blu Kote.
And that is because of the ingredients which effectively is just a salt water solution.
Yes, just salt water.
It is not a product that would be the best for bumblefoot as an antibiotic spray or cream would be of greater benefit to that type of wound.
Retailing in Australia at around $42 for 118ml (4 oz), it is a lot to pay for salt water.
H2O = water (electrolyzed or not, it will still be water)
NaCl = salt (table salt)
NaOCl = bleach (for water purification)
You CAN make it - Home Recipe
You may have made it before especially if you or an infant have ever had an eye infection.
Use cooled boiled tap water from the kettle and regular salt. (Non-iodised)
Ratio: 1 teaspoon of salt per 500ml of water
- Mix well and pour into a clean spray bottle.
- Alternatively use a small Chux cloth wipe cut into small squares to moisten with the salt water solution for areas on your pet that need to wiped rather than sprayed. Discard used cloth after use.
Important note: Salt water solution should be made up daily, so only make your solution on the day you need to use it and discard any remaining solution after 24 hours.
You can use Vetericyn at $42 per bottle if you want, but dollar for dollar my money is on the good old home remedy.
