Animalintex is the original veterinary poultice and wound dressing, that has been used by countless customers for decades. It is made to a proven formula and manufactured in the UK in a facility that is authorised by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), the UK authority that is responsible for enforcing the safety of veterinary medicinal products.
There are a number of poultices available on the market but only one is licensed by the VMD – Animalintex. This license is very important as the formulation and manufacture need to be strictly controlled as poultices have a pharmaceutical effect on the horse. Animalintex contains Boric Acid BP, an active ingredient which promotes effective healing.
Products having a pharmaceutical effect but not having a license are illegal, not to mention potentially dangerous for your horse. The control is rather like the control of drugs for people. Animalintex by Robinson Animal Healthcare is a well known, respected and trusted product which is licensed and is highly effective.
Unfortunately wounds sometimes become infected. If your horse has a large wound which is infected you should call a vet immediately, particularly if your horse is showing signs of distress. However, a wide range of conditions – including wounds – can be treated using Animalintex
