EMT GEL --- Good Stuff?
Hunted pheasants three days in a row. Nose to the grindstone, raw and bleeding. This stuff coupled with neo-sporin appeared to help greatly. Briar Looks like Rudolf, but I think it made the difference between hunting him or leaving at duck camp.
A pointer dog friend had some and swears by it. Both dawgs put in some miles in some tough cover. We had a nice shoot. Mallards on Saturday, and chickens the last few days.
Bramble (dark nose) never had this issue. It will be part of my first aid kit, unless there is something better.
And, as part of the hunt, the pointer ran into one skunk, and the retriever one porcupine. Made for a fun evening de--smelling, and de-quilling.
Gotta love love chasing birds, dogs, and wild places!
EMT gel should be in every first aid kit! It is amazing. I mainly use it for healing cut pads but any cuts or scrapes are quickly taken care of.
EMT gel and spray are always in my first aid kit. One of my dogs had a sebaceous cyst rupture. We applied EMT and the open wound healed in just a few days. Great stuff!
Truth is, I've used both the gel and spray on myself a couple of times over the years. It is definitely worth having in the kit.
I was told by someone ( Ithink my vet) to not use neo sporine but to use poly sporin instead. Anyone know for sure?
EMT is good stuff. I'M fighting the same problem with my oldest dog right now and instead of using the EMT which I have, I'm using Corona ointment and it's working great also. Just another goody for the bag :)
I've never really had good luck with EMT gel..... I stopped buying it. Quite honestly, couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about. I think a couple of times it actually interferred with healing, and getting the residue off was a problem... anyone else have this experience?
Along this same line, has anyone seen any advantages to using the liquid bandages?

Can someone provide a reasonably priced source for both EMT Gel & Spray?
