About the product Animalintex Poultice Dressing
Animalintex combines proven active ingredients with a 170g/m needled cotton wool for extra strength and ease of use. Animalintex is an effective healing aid that can be applied as a hot or cold wet poultice or dry wound dressing.
It is the original and only licensed absorbent multi-layered poultice and wound dressing available and is classified as a Veterinary Medicinal Product and is therefore licensed by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD). It can be used as a hot poultice, cold poultice or dry dressing and is suitable for the treatment of infected wounds, open wounds, foot punctures, corns, bruised soles, thrush, seedy toe, abscesses, laminitis, sandcracks and thorns. Boric Acid BP is the main active ingredient which promotes effective healing, plus tragacanth, a natural poulticing agent that draws infection out of the wound.
Every batch of Animalintex has to be signed off by a qualified person to Veterinary Medical Directorate requirements to ensure consistent dosing and quality of ingredients.

Directions for Hot Poultice
Start by cleaning any mud and dirt away from the area to be treated. You can use the whole poultice or cut to the size required. Use boiled water that has been allowed to cool to 38ºC and pour the water into a tray, around the edges of the Animalintex. When saturated, take out and gently hand squeeze out the excess water. Place on the affected area with the plastic side on the outside, moulding the Animalintex to the contours of the body. Hold in place with a bandage ensuring the poultice is completely covered.
Directions for Cold Poultice
Follow the same procedure as above using boiled water that has been allowed to cool thoroughly before pouring. When the Animalintex is saturated, squeeze out excess water and apply cold to the affected area.
Directions for Dry Poultice
After cleaning the area apply the dressing directly and bandage. Make sure the poultice is completely covered. Animalintex may be used several times and still retain its effectiveness if applied dry.
