I love the stuff. Yes it's expensive but when my horse had a cut leg and it was oozing and puss was draining and running down his leg, after a couple days I broke down and bought it and gave it a try. Stopped the pussing and oozing overnight. My dog just cut his pad on his foot, and after a day was back to walking on it and it's healing wonderfully. Now...it says not for human use, but I have psoriasis on my feet and it gets red and itchy and peeling and painful so I thought...what the heck? I haven't been this comfortable in years despite all the prescription treatments I've tried.

Now, I know a lot of people think it's worthless, but think it's great. I need it in purse size.

I love, love, love Vetricyn. It cleans and prevents infection in the wound but doesn't dry it out. I think that's the key to how it works so well.
Always great to have on hand for any animal. I've used it for cuts on horses, an ear infection on a dog, and to get an abcess cleaned after it'd been drained.

It's worth the money if you decided to buy more.

I love it! Cleans up cuts and scrapes beautifully. Jesse had rain rot in his forelock last summer. His hair stopped falling out overnight and all of it has grown back now without any hint of it being gone.

Had an old mare tear the skin off her entire knee. Vetrycin cleaned it up, kept it from pussing up too much, and kept infection away. Of course we bandaged as well, but she went on to have a full recovery :)

I love vetricyn. It is pricey but it works. I had this cut on my finger that was hurting for two days I sprayed it on my finger that morning and by the afternoon I didn't even feel it. I do know that if you let it sit out in the heat that it turns into nothing but water. I use the eye version on my mare and my husband asked me to spray it in his eye because he thought it my burn her eyes and he said it didn't burn his eye at all. A lady I talked to said her and her mom use it when they get sinus infection I haven't gotten that brave lol

I think it's the liquid form of pixie dust. That'd explain the price.

But, in reality, the base ingredient is oxychlorine.

Edit: Here's the website. http://vetericyn.com/technology/faq.php
I read through some of the things but I still don't really understand most of it.
