Sugar Glider Education

Vetericyn Wound & Skin Care 4 ounce

A MUST HAVE for your animals' emergency kit!  My vets LOVE this product.  Most of the veterinarians I know recommend this, and told me to let them know when we started carrying it because a lot of vets don't have much retail space, but think so much of this product, they would carry it if they had the room to do so.  

When I moved from FL to TX, I threw out a lot of stuff in bottles, like cleaning supplies, medical supplies, etc because I didn't want anything leaking on my stuff during the long haul.  I sliced my toe open one day on the bottom of a metal exterior door at our warehouse and the only thing I had on hand was Vetercyn.  I'm not recommending you use this for humans, but it's all I had and it truly saved me from a nasty infection.    Hey, if it's good enough for my animals, good enough for me, but I'm just weird that way.  Since then, I have invested in some hydrogen peroxide for my human emergency kit!  Read on for specific sugar glider uses and Vetericyn FAQ's

Vetericyn can be used on any type of skin abasions, cuts, bite wounds, boo boos, abasions, sores and irritated skin (like they have the itchies).  It is completely safe to use with sugar gliders and has been clinically tested across a broad range of animals in clinical studies and gets the thumbs up from at least a half dozen veterinarians we've asked to comment on this product (none of them did not like it).  It will not harm an animal if licked or otherwise ingested, won't harm the eyes, ears, any any body part.  

I've heard people over the years say they used OTC human antibiotic ointments on their animals in these types of emergencies, but do you really want them to lick it off?  It's not recommend for consumption, and animals WILL lick wounds.  They will lick their own wounds, other animal wounds, human wounds.  They are just wound licking maniacs.  It is how Mother Nature made them!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you use Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care for the ear or eye?

Vetericyn Wound and Skin care products can be used for the outer ear and midle ear of animals. As it pertains to the eye we recommend the use of the Vetericyn line of eye products

Even though the formulas are based on the same technology, as the company in compliance with FDA regulations and International guidance, we cannot endorse, promote or communicate off label use in any of our products in adherence to regulatory requirements

Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care products are not bleach. Bleach is corrosive, toxic, will burn, generates fumes/vapors and is not safe for use on the intended applications of Vetericyn. In addition, stabilized bleach has a pH of >11. Vetericyn however, is safe and non-toxic. Vetericyn products are manufactured within an appropriate physiological pH range and will not sting when applied. Vetericyn will not harm healthy tissue in the process of cleaning and debriding wounds. Vetericyn is also a shelf-stable solution.

We prefer Vetericyn to be used on its own per label indications. Vetericyn has no known contraindications and no known negative drug interactions. If you need to apply other remedies like fly repellents, we recommend that you apply Vetericyn first and wait at least 60 seconds before applying any other materials. We recommend that you advise your healthcare professional (veterinarian) of any treatment protocol you are following in addition to those recommended by the veterinarian. Vetericyn is not intended for use on systemic conditions.

Vetericyn works by mechanically cleaning and debriding the affected area of application.

Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care products are unique from other animal wound cleansers/dressings because of their safety profile. They are safe for use on all animal species regardless of age and condition. Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care is non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-irritating, non-staining, and safe to use on or around the eyes, nose and mouth. Vetericyn does not harm healthy tissue. Vetericyn does not contain steroids, alcohol, tea tree oil or antibiotics and is biodegradable. Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care is manufactured within an appropriate physiological pH range and is shelf-stable. It can be easily applied with no mixing or dilution required and does not require rinsing after use.

The fact that Vetericyn does not contain antibiotics is significant due to the concern that overuse of antibiotics promotes resistance. The repeated and extended use of Vetericyn in cleaning and debriding the wound bed has no adverse consequences and does not promote resistance. In addition, if there are regulatory limitations for use of antibiotics, those limitations do not apply to Vetericyn since it contains none.

Yes. This is a normal observation as a result of using Vetericyn for cleansing and debriding the affected area.

Vetericyn is marketed based on a US FDA cleared wound care medical device technology for human use, and there are no current regulatory requirements by the FDA for animal device clearance. It is legal and viable to use current Vetericyn consumer product and Vetericyn VF for the use of animal care. To demonstrate its safety and effectiveness, there were two major animal clinical studies and 25 human clinical studies have been conducted to date.

While there is a slight chlorine odor, there is a proprietary amount of Free Active Chlorine (FAC) measured in parts per million which is not significant enough to cause pain. Vetericyn VF has almost twice the amount of FAC than consumer strength Vetericyn, yet still does not sting when applied.

Yes, Vetericyn is safe for use on all animals (mammals, reptiles and avian).

Yes, Vetericyn is safe for use with other wound care products, but we recommend consulting a veterinary physician. Vetericyn has no known contraindications and no known negative drug interactions.
