WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES

Due to their physically active lifestyle, pets and domestic animals are prone to accidents and injuries. They often sustain various skin lesions: scratches, lacerations, burns. Wounds present a visible disruption in the tissue integrity of the skin. In severe cases, the damage can affect other tissues underneath the skin (connective tissue, blood vessels, muscles, nerves, etc.). The skin surrounding the wound often becomes inflamed; it appears red and swollen. If the surface blood vessels are damaged, skin wounds are bleeding. Surface burns are characterized with redness and blisters.
The animal skin often gets irritated by the various outer impacts, such as skin parasites or allergens. Irritated skin is covered with rash; it is often red, itchy and inflamed as a result of frequent scratching, biting or licking.
Hotspot, also known as moist eczema, is a specific, localized form of skin lesion caused by some sort of irritation. The affected area is severely itchy, and the animal is licking, biting and scratching the skin to try and relieve the unpleasant sensation. The constant wetness from the licking and the thick fur coat provide a warm and moist environment for bacterial growth and development of infection with further irritation.
External ear inflammation is characterized with smelly and itchy ears. The animals are scratching the surrounding of the affected ear. The skin of that area is often red, covered with crusts and wounds. The external ear canal is swollen, red and covered with cerumen.
Skin lesions can be connected with certain skin diseases, such as skin infections (e.g. pyoderma in dogs), allergies, skin parasites (e.g. mites), skin tumors (e.g. trichoepithelioma in guinea pigs), degenerative skin diseases or infectious diseases (e.g. Canine distemper).
Ear infections are connected with allergies, yeast or bacterial infections and well as external parasites (ear mites).
