An example of the unique solutions to pet wounds is the Polyox bandage which is a compounded powder often dispensed in a collapsible bottle (pictured above) that allows the patient to puff the custom medication directly onto a wound.
- Superior to traditional bandages
- Stays in place for a guaranteed 4-hours even if rubbed or licked
For example, applying the bandage to a “hot spot” on a dog can aid in the healing. Our pharmacists can add diphenhydramine (bitter taste) as a deterrent to lick the wound.
