    Holy cow. I would be afraid of being bit by the most friendly dog in the world. You know what I'm talking about if you have ever used that stuff on yourself. I might side with animal cruelty for anyone that uses that stuff on a dog. I am not sure what the pain of delivering a baby is like, but that might be worse than anything I have ever experienced.


    I love EMT gel. I have had great results on all kinds of cuts.

    It's about $11 or either spray or gel as I recall.

    Another product you may consider is Coolspot 2000. It's a spray used for hot spots and it works wonders. It's available at many places on the web....even ebay (though that's not the least expensive).

    At our local vet I can get the spray or the get for around 10 to 15 bucks I was advised to use the spray and as far as taking it off it just wears off after time

    Why would you want to take it off early?

    As suggested by others, I've been using, Vetericyn - Wound & Infection Care (clear spray in plastic bottle).
    Once you try it & see the fast healing process, you won't leave home without it.

    gels and ointments aren't always used correctly, which is why a bunch of places say not to use them. Puncture wounds and unclean wounds are hindered by pretty much anything that isn't warm water, soap and air for example.

    I use hibiclens (or dawn if I don't have hibiclens handy) and warm water for just about everything now. Have only had limited experience with EMT gel, but I could see it working well for worn feet and noses as a protectant, less useful for deeper or bigger cuts.
