Bacderm powder

Bacderm powder is a topical medication for animals, specifically targeted for wounds. It combines three ingredients to fight infections and promote healing. Here's a breakdown of its uses and functionalities:

  • Purpose: Bacderm powder is used for treating myiasis, which is maggot infestation in wounds, and preventing fly strike, where flies lay eggs on wounds leading to maggot growth.

  • Ingredients: It contains:

    • Permethrin: This kills maggots and other parasites.
    • Sulfanilamide: This is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that fights bacteria commonly found in wounds.
    • Zinc oxide: This helps dry the wound and promotes tissue regeneration.
  • Application: It's a dusting powder applied topically to the wound after clipping the fur and cleaning the area with an antiseptic solution. For deep wounds, it can be mixed with oil or paraffin for better application.

  • Important Points:

    • Bacderm powder is meant for external use only and should never be ingested by animals.
    • It's not recommended for cats due to their sensitivity to certain ingredients.
    • Always consult a veterinarian before using Bacderm powder on your pet, especially if they have pre-existing health conditions.

Note: Bacderm powder is a veterinary medication and not intended for human use.
