Can anyone tell me which one of these Vetericyn product is appropriate to use on gliders? I have a glider with a breeding/dominance wound and I want to try the Vetericyn.

I use Vetericyn VF ( vet formula) wound and infection treatment. Its a hydrogel spray. IT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I am using it on my glider for her dominance wound and it has healed sooo fast. It dries, doesnt make them greasy, and its safe. I have never seen or used anything that has healed something so fast! I love it. Her hair is growing over back over the scar now smile

What I have (and use) is the Vetericyn VF Wound & Infection.

Thanks ladies. The only Vetericyn I could find was Vetericyn Wound & Infection. Not the VF. I went ahead and bought it anyway. The guy at teh checkout counter said it works great and it helps wounds heal really fast.
My glider removed the scab again today. I already have her separated from her family because they keep grooming her wound. If she doesn't let the wound heal up I will be taking her to the vet to see if it can be stitched up. It isn't deep, but it needs to heal up so no infections can set in.

Spray the Vetericyn on the wound 3-4 times a day (you can't use it too often). Let it heal from the inside out.

The Vetericyn may make the wound look MUCH more red at first. That is the oxygen going to the cells to help them heal. It is normal. If it remains without a scab, the tissue inside will get a granular texture to it (will look almost like pink cottage cheese). Again, perfectly normal and what you want to see.

There shouldn't be any real oozing or bad odor to it.

Thank you so much Karen for bringing this up. I would have totally forgotten to get some for my first aide kit and possibly for Ivey! smile

Thank you Teresa for explaining what normal and healthy should look like. I know I for one (if I ever have to use it) would have freaked seeing something that looked like pink cottage cheese OR it being red at first.

Sherri why do you have your vet in an e-collar??? roflmao

Yes it is ok to use in e-collar and it's ok if they lick it. I watched it sprayed directly into a glider's eye with no ill effect, and certainly, with the spray that wide, some must have made it to the mouth. It probly tastes funny anyway but you'd have to ask a glider lol.

I have used it without an ecollar, I'm sure my "vet" was happy I didn't put her in an ecollar. LOL Sorry Sherri I just had too. ROFL And yes they can lick it off without it harming them. As T stated when first applied the area will get pinker and this is actually a good sign. I'll also tell you the stuff is AMAZING! Wounds heal real quick like. It also has the benefit of keeping infection away. Great stuff and my e kit will never be without it again I tell you.

Thanks Dancing for bring it to the attention of the communtiy!

I don't think I've ever seen it in the stores I frequent. Is it carried by the big name Pet stores (Petco, PetSmart, etc)?

Thanks Teresa :-)
The granular tissue sounds sort of like proud flesh on a horse, except that proud flesh can hinder a wound from closing up.
I sprayed it on my glider once as soon as I got home this evening and I will spray it on her again before I go to bed tonight.

If you do a google search for Vetericyn, you will be able to go to the website and search for stores that carry it in your area. I got mine at Atwoods. Petco and Petsmart don't carry it in my area.

Karen, this is what my vet gave me when my horse got so badly cut last summer. It is amazing how quickly she healed once we started using it.

Yes, it is safe if ingested and is also safe if they get it in their eyes. (that's one of the things I like best!)

Scarlet Oil is supposed to help heal wounds but is toxic and you don't want the glider to ingest it. Actually, many things we have used in the past or currently use on our pets, we don't want them to ingest. I like that this is safe.

Hi Karen

Here is my thread from when Luna got a mating wound she had surgery but then the wound didn't heal well. The vetericyn work so well. She is completely healed now and expecting two joeys.

Wow, Reeny! That's amazing!!! My glider's wound never looked as bad as yours, but it does look pretty large after her family groomed the scab off yesterday.
It lookes like the Vetericyn did a great job helping Luna's wound heal quickly!

Keep a close eye Karen because once it starts working "poof" and the wound is gone! No really it starts working right away and you'll notice the edges starting to look like new skin, thin so careful with it, and that just keeps going until the whole wound has new skin, very light pink almost white, then as time goes on the new skin thickens and it begins to look like the rest of her skin. Hair will take a bit longer but not as long as without the vetricyn. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
