Animalintex® Poultice
3M

Description:
The all-purpose veterinary poultice dressing for use in horses and dogs (unsterile). Animalintex poultice pad can be used either as a hot wet poultice or a cold wet poultice, or as a dry wound dressing.

Ingredients:
Tragacanth 6.02g/pad, Boric Acid 2.08 g/pad.

Directions for Use:
General Preparations:

  1. Gently clean mud and dirt from the application area. 
  2. Place the poultice pad with the plastic waterproof backing uppermost in a clean shallow container.

Hot Wet Poulticing:

  1. Pour boiled water that has been allowed to cool to 38°C/100°F into the container around the edges of the poultice pad. 
  2. When the pad is saturated, take it out and gently squeeze out the excess water. 
  3. Place the poultice pad on the area with the plastic waterproof backing on the outside (away from the skin), molding the poultice pad to the contours of the area. 
  4. Hold in place with Vetrap bandaging tape, making sure the poultice pad is completely covered.

Cold Wet Poulticing:

  1. Follow the General Preparations above, but use cool, potable water. Pour the water around the edges of the poultice pad. 
  2. When the pad is saturated, take it out and gently squeeze out the excess water. 
  3. Apply to the area cold with the plastic waterproof backing on the outside (away from the skin). 
  4. Hold in place with Vetrap bandaging tape, making sure the poultice pad is completely covered.

Wound Dressing:

  1. Gently clean any mud or dirt from the application area. 
  2. Place the poultice pad on the area with the plastic waterproof backing on the outside (away from the skin). 
  3. Hold in place with Vetrap bandaging tape, making sure the poultice pad is completely covered.

Cautions:
Change the poultice pad at least once every 12 hours. For external use only. Wash hands before and after use. Do not apply too hot--when tested on the back of your hand it should feel comfortable to the touch. Ensure that the poultice pad is applied with the plastic waterproof backing away from the animal. Do not bandage too tightly. If the skin is broken, be sure to follow routine disease prevention and immunization procedures. All medicines should be kept out of reach of children. Not for use on horses intended for human consumption.
