Don't use this cream (Allergen of the Year!)

You have probably used this cream, and believe it or not, it may have hurt your pets, and even you.

Just cause many people say it is so...doesn't really mean it is..

On the other hand, there is one alternative remedy which *really* can help your dogs or cats, in spite of many suggesting you shouldn't use it.

Its Cannabidiol, better known as CBD. It's been used on thousands of pets, with some wonderful results.

Especially for inflammatory disorders, such as arthritis.

One good option ( at least in my opinion :-)  ) is my supplement, Dr Jones ULTIMATE CBD for Dogs and Cats

What do you reach for to treat an open cut or a wound? Thanks to Johnson & Johnson’s successful marketing, many people say Neosporin. 

And many a veterinarian has said the same thing- if your dog or cat has a wound, 'prevent' infection by applying Neosporin.

While I do want you to use a product to keep the wound moist, you need to know why it shouldn’t be Neosporin.

Neosporin was created in the 1950s. However, it was not approved for use by the FDA until 1971. It is an over-the-counter topical antibiotic containing neomycin sulfate, polymyxin B, and bacitracin. 

Why do so many dermatologists HATE Neosporin?

Neomycin frequently causes allergic reactions of the skin called contact dermatitis. It can cause the skin to become red, scaly, and itchy. The more Neosporin you use, the worse the skin reaction gets. 

 Neomycin is such a common allergen that it was named Allergen of the Year in 2010. The goal of this award is to bring awareness to commonly used products that are under-recognized as common allergens. Polymyxin B and bacitracin can cause contact dermatitis as well.

It’s also important to understand that Neosporin does not speed up wound healing.

So let's recap

1. It can cause serious skin reactions
2. It does NOT speed up wound healing
3. There are far better options:

-Clean wound with an antiseptic cleanser such as chlorhexidine or green tea
-Apply a proven healing topical to speed wound healing, such as HONEY  (it's a wonderful antibacterial)
- You can use topical Castor Oil to form a protective layer over the injured skin. It prevents the skin from drying out and keeps the wound moist, speeding wound healing

Follow these steps and you will heal the wound far faster, and AVOID, unnecessary conventional medication side effects.
