I use Vetericyn now, the way I used to use Furacin (nitrofurazone).
For complete and detailed information about Furacin, click here.
Do you remember Fura?
It was the "go to" topical product from the past...orange goop?
Ring a bell at all?
In my opinion, Vetericyn has replaced Furacin.
Much easier, much cleaner, much less messy, and Non Toxic!
FYI - I'm not sure if you know that Fura was proven to be a carcinogenic,
and could be absorbed through your skin.
I used it an absolute ton, for decades, without rubber gloves, and I seem to be OK, but...
If you are still using Fura, please be sure to apply it with gloves on!
(Wording Copied from the Vetericyn website):
"Anyone who owns a horse knows that they need to be prepared for the eventuality of injuries, wounds and irritations. As a one-step immediate-acting product, it eliminates the need for multiple products while reducing the application time and requirements.
Since it is “no-rinse”, it leaves no film or residue to clean off. Vetericyn can be applied with spray irrigation systems, immersion, lavage and dressings, and is compatible with most gauzes and acrylics and can be used prior to application of other treatments.
Unlike traditional antiseptics and topical antibiotics it does not damage healthy tissue. Finally, Vetericyn “tests free” on competition animals as it contains no banned substances.
