    I call it glorified water but now that's "here", I won't be without the stuff.

    I've never seen anything like it to calm/clean/heal itchy/hurting stuff on the horses.

    Then there's the dog that I thought was going to end up at the vet from digging her ear so bad it was seeping.

    I cleaned down in her ear for three days with a twisted up paper towel soaked in Vetericyn (it was Friday, you know nothing good always happens on weekends).

    By Monday, the ear healed and all the redness was gone I keep checking her ear, still thinking she may have to see the vet but, so far everything's normal and she quit digging at it in the first 24 hours of using the Vetericyn.

    Just amazing

    I have used Vetericyn on our horses, dogs and cats - all with great success. However, you mention that you found your's in a truck that your father purchased - that would concern me as the storage for this product is best done at room temp, away from extreme temperatures and out of direct sunlight. Depending on how long it was kept in the vehicle, it's active ingredients may have degraded beyond usefulness.

    I was just going to say that, Macpack. I mistakenly left some in the unheated tack room in our barn. Can't get it too cold, either. The bottle gives temp. Variations. I won't make that mistake again. $$$

    Love the stuff! The kind for eyes is wonderful, too. Journey used to get a lot of eye irritations. Vetricyn pretty much cured that.

    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.

    If you found it in a truck that you don't know how long it's been there, it may have been frozen or in direct sunlight, it's contents are useless and neutralized. Don't depend on it working as you don't know how it was stored.

    Have used both the Gel spray and the other spray (looks like water) love them both! You just have to remember to not get the gel in the eyes.
    Hate the price, love what they do!
