Vetericyn Pink Eye Spray has become a top seller at Valley Vet Supply. The reason--Vetericyn works on pink eye. In fact, labratory tests show it kills 99.99% of Moraxella bovis that causes pink eye.
Sometimes producer are surprised at the cost per bottle, but that one bottle can provide 90 - 100 applications at 6 squirts per animal. That's just five cents a spray, so the total treatment is about thirty cents an animal. Vetericyn Pink Eye Spray works through hypochlorous acid, which is a natural product the body produces in the white blood cells in response to injury.
But back to the real issue. Here's the lowdown on how to cure a pink eye problem.
1. Make sure you get the Pink Eye Spray, as it has more concentrated ingredients to address pinkeye infections. Since tears tend to dilute the product, they upped the concentration in this formula.
2. If the eye is not ulcerated, but watering or infected, count on 2 days of treatment. Fully flood the eyes with 3 sprays in each eye, 2 times a day. Release to the herd.
3. If the eye is ulcerated, the manufacturer recommends using the gel form and covering the eye if necessary with an eye patch. Reapply 2x a day until it heals.
4. Easiest to use when head is immobilized in a headgate.
5. Preventative measures - use on all calves or cattle coming into the yard. Spray eyes while in the chute.
Make sure you have your Vetericyn before the winter season because Valley Vet can't ship it during the freezing weather. If the product freezes solid, it is neutralized. Be sure to store at a reasonable temperature in your barn or home especially in cold months, as freezing will inactivate the product.
