Animalintex is classified as a Veterinary Medicinal Product and is therefore licensed by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD). It can be used as a hot poultice, cold poultice or dry dressing and is suitable for the rapid treatment of foot conditions such as foot punctures, corns, bruised soles, thrush, seedy toe, abscesses, laminitis, sandcracks and thorns.
The dressing is supplied pre-cut to shape for economy and convenience. It contains Boric Acid BP, an active ingredient that promotes effective healing, plus tragacanth, a natural poulticing agent that draws infection out of the wound.
Instructions for use:
General preparations: Gently clean mud and dirt from the area to be treated. Place with the plastic waterproof side uppermost in a clean shallow container (do not use a bucket unless it has been very carefully cleansed first). Hold in place with a bandage making sure the poultice dressing is completely covered.
Hot wet poulticing: Use boiled water that has been allowed to cool to 38 degrees (100F) and pour the water around the edge of the Animalintex Hoof Treatment Poultice. When it is saturated, take out and gently squeeze out the excess water (if pus is to be absorbed, squeeze out more water so that the dressing is damp rather than wet). Place on the affected area with the plastic waterproof backing on the outside moulding the Animalintex Hoof Treatment Poultice to the contours of the foot. Hold in place with a bandage making sure the poultice dressing is completely covered.
Cold wet poulticing: Following the general preparations above but using boiled water that has been allowed to cool. When it is saturated, take out and gently squeeze out the excess water. Apply to the foot COLD.
3 dressings per pack. Pre-cut and designed especially for use on the underside of the foot.
Economical and convenient for the treatment of foot abscesses, corns, thrush and puncture wounds
