USE OF HUMAN TOPICAL ANTIBIOTICS IN PETS & ANIMALS
Dogs, cats, and other domestic pets regularly take the same medicines as humans. Many, and perhaps most, antibiotics are approved for use
in humans and animals. Many animal drugs start off as human medications, because there is far more money invested in human drug research. A significant amount of the research for Vitastem came from testing the drug on animals.
Many over-the-counter (OTC) antibiotics such as Bacitracin, and Neosporin are used as a first aid for wounds in cats and dogs even though they are not FDA approved for such use.
Regular strength first aid topical ointments are perfectly safe to use on pets with minor cuts, scrapes or abrasions. They are for external use and should never be used inside of ears, in eyes or on large deep wounds.
Vitastem topical antibiotic is FDA registered to treat minor cuts, scrapes and burns in humans. Independent third party research has shown Vitastem to
be safe for use in treating minor cuts, scrapes and abrasions in pets, even though it’s not FDA approved for animals.
Always follow the guidelines for use which can be found on the bottle. It shouldn’t be used longer than a few days, especially if the issue doesn’t improve or worsens. Vitastem is most effective when applied after cleaning the affected area first. Your pet can safely lick the small amount that would be applied to the affected area without any concern.
If the symptoms do not subside even after one week’s therapy, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian.
