Living on a Farm with many different animal's chickens, dogs, donkeys, cows and horses we have discovered LET THE ANIMALS HEAL ITSELF. There immune system is not damaged like ours. It's amazing to watch cuts and bites and scrapes heal themselves without our help. (Makes you wonder what animals did before we came along) With the more severe cuts we use Hydrogen Peroxide and 7% Iodine. Works great -- haven't lost an animal yet.
