WHY CHOOSE SEPTICIDE?
Promotes wound healing and prevents infection
SEPTICIDE contains the antiseptic proflavin hemisulfate that assists in wound healing and prevents the development of infection. The antiseptic formulation helps the wound to heal and prevents infection from establishing in the wound. The cream formulation stops the wound from drying out creating optimum conditions for wound healing. SEPTICIDE can be safely applied to all forms of minor wounds on dogs particularly those prone to irritation by insects eg. dogs’ ears.
Kills flies and nuisance insects
The active ingredients in SEPTICIDE are highly effective insecticidal compounds. The insecticide permethrin is one of the most effective insecticides available to kill insects landing on treated areas and to protect the wound from flystrike or other insect related damage. N Octyl Bicycloheptene Dicarboximide when combined with permethrin acts synergistically to prolong and intensify insecticidal activity.
Repels flies and other nuisance insects
Diethyltoluamide, DEET, contained in SEPTICIDE is regarded as one of the most effective insect repelling compounds available. DEET acts by creating a shield of repellent vapour as it evaporates. This shield confuses insects so they can’t locate the animal to land on. N Octyl Bicycloheptane Dicarboximide is a synergist with DEET which assists DEET in working more effectively by prolonging it’s action and intensifying it’s repellent properties.
Versatile easy to use cream formula
Presented in a cream preparation, SEPTICIDE is ideal for preventing wounds drying out providing optimum conditions for wound healing. The cream form also makes it easy to apply to difficult areas such as the head and ears particularly on nervous or skittish animals. SEPTICIDE is registered for use on both dogs and horses. This multi-species use means that it is a handy first aid product to have on hand in a wide variety of situations.
