The first is called Alushield and it basically works by covering the wound with an aluminum powder coating that protects it from flies and dirt so that it can keep from infection and the hair can grow back. The testimonials say that it appears to sting on an open wound, but it allows quick healing.
The second product is called Granulex. I have received numerous glowing comments on this product. It works by assisting “healing by facilitating the removal of necrotic tissue, exudate, and organic debris,” according to the manufacturer. I noticed it contains a special enzyme that is a digestive sort of enzyme that they were able to liquify and put into a spray application. Of course, people use it for abrasions and minor cuts, but it can be used for serious and life-threatening wounds as well. The testimonials regarding this product are very impressive. Several have used it for deep, to-the-bone wounds, and couple it with hydrotherapy. It has literally saved horses’ lives, and has had “drastic results” in healing. You can read the testimonials yourself by putting in the item number in the search word box, and then pulling up the testimonials right above the “Additional Information Links” banner. Ingredients on our products can also be found there under the “Manufacturer’s Label” tab.
Micro-Tek Medicated Spray is a best-seller antimicrobial that works really well on rain rot and scratches. With a 32 oz. bottle, and 24 hour coverage, it is a good once-a-day healer. It also comes in a shampoo.
Lavender Cleansing Spray is the all natural, good-smelling astringent that one testimonial said helped a wound scab over that previously wouldn’t.
Scarlex is a germicide that many people use as well. It claims to relieve itching as well.
Tea-Pro Equine Wound Spray is a natural healer that’s non-greasy and can even be used in the mouth for bit or teeth problems, as well as any skin issues.
Finally I would mention Gall Salve. This is for a specialized sore spot that a cinch can constantly irritate. Several people have told me that it is a great healer, and they won’t do without it. You can use it on a scab as well, until it drops off and you can put it directly on the new skin. The 5 oz. jar lasts a good, long time. Testimonials on this product on our website say that it is helpful for scratches and even worked on a wart that a vet said would be difficult to treat conventionally. So don’t let a wound rob your horse or pet of its comfort and health. Treat it with one of these healing helpers for your animal’s unique need! Ellen
