Looking for the perfect ointment to treat your horse’s wound with? Silver Sulfadiazine Cream (SSD), long used for the treatment of minor burns is finding new life as a topical wound dressing in the horse. No cream is perfect but silver sulfadiazine cream does have a lot of advantages.
Elemental silver has highly effective antibacterial activity. SSD in at least one study has been shown to reduce exuberant granulation tissue (“proud flesh”), a problem often encountered with wound healing in the horse. It is believed that the use of SSD decreased the length of hospital stays, the rate of wound infection and inflammation; as well as reduces the need for the use of analgesics when compared to other wound dressings.
We offer Ascend Silver Sulfadiazine Cream to horse owners with a valid prescription.
