My gelding had to have a hole drilled in the top of his face from a impacted tooth, the hole never closed and would kind of seep so I took him to the vet and the vet said it doesn't bother him, when winter comes we could close it or just leave it. I was still concerned so he put him on this antibiotic that cost $69 it sort of went away the seeping but not quite. So one day I had the vetricyn and I asked my husband lets just spray it in the hole clean it up and who knows, so we did and it was almost a week before we saw anymore seepage and it was barely any really so we did it again, and one more time since and the hole looks like it is so much smaller and it hardly ever seeps. I gave some to a friend whose dog was scuffed up, he liked it too. It is pricey but with animals you run into the problem of how hard it is to keep a wound clean that is just makes sense to spend your money on something that works really fast then having to keep buying cheaper remedies that take longer.
