Zymox also has a topical cream. I think you can't get that one over the counter. It's for veterinary use only but it is awesome and works great. It's for topical infections, wounds and cuts and hydrocortisone free.

Jax08 Luckily, Mrs. K doesn't have a bird. I didn't cover it unless it could be reached to lick. Not sure if there is a Carrasyn gauze product. If I have to put gauze on it you might as well save some money, since those type of products always seem to be more expensive, and just use the Carrasyn gel and wrap it yourself. I did use the EMT gel on myself after gallbladder surgery. It does work really well.

EMT Gel and Carrasyn are wound products. The EMT Gel has collagen in it and dries on. Carrasyn keeps the wound moist so it doesn't scar as much and heals better.
They are both good but you have to cover the wound when you use Carrasyn and on animals that is hard.

Isn't there a Carrasyn gauze product? That might be an option.

Jax08 RedR327 - I still like the Carrasyn better. It's not such a mess to work with.

huntergreen i prefer betadine as that is what we use in the er and or. if there was a flap, i would have glued it, liquid stitches" after cleaning, then let it heal on its own.

I was very skeptical about the claims of that product but it really does a great job.
