Betadine is the go-to disinfectant in your arsenal of veterinary therapeutic products. Betadine is ideal for cleaning the skin and mucous membranes and for antisepsis of infected lesions or lesions exposed to the risk of infection.
Betadine has broad-spectrum antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Betadine is used for the antisepsis of small, superficial wounds and burns. Betadine can also be used for adjuvant treatment of skin and mucous membranes subject to a current or secondary bacterial infection.
Small wounds and superficial cutaneous lesions, small burns:
· Apply Betadine straight from the bottle onto the affected area, or carefully dab onto affected area using gauze dipped in Betadine solution. Allow wound to dry.
· Repeat treatment when Betadine loses its colour.
· Add Betadine solution to a water bath that is at at body temperature, until the water turns the colour of strong, black, tea. Immerse the body part requiring treatment (paw, leg, etc.) for approximately 10 minutes in the Betadine solution.
· Repeat 2 to 3 times daily.
· As long as the liquid retains a golden-brown colour, the Betadine solution still has disinfectant properties. Once the colour has faded or disappeared, make a fresh solution.
· The Betadine solution can be used several times per day. Continue treatment until affected area has healed.
