  • Joint Nutraceuticals. Should you be getting on board? by Dr Megan Wassung
  • Cannabiniol: Current Evidence in Companion Care by Dr Megan Wassung
Date: 23 February 2021 As private practitioners, we spend much of our time treating wounds, ears, pruritus and dermatitis, and looking after surgical incisions. Many of these cases require some form of antibiosis. Recent studies have shown that appropriately selected topical therapy is preferential to systemic treatment in many cases. Chlorhexidine gluconate, one of the most widely used disinfectants in veterinary medicine, is unfortunately toxic to fibroblasts and keratinocytes and slows wound healing. Hypochlorous acid has been hailed as the new gold standard for use in human cosmetic surgery, amongst other contexts. This webinar presents these developments and introduces you to using Effivet in the veterinary context. Effivet is a veterinary-specific formulation of hypochlorous acid, manufactured in Europe and sold locally by Ascendis Animal Health.
