Description

Aniwell Active Manuka Honey provides a natural antibacterial layer which blocks many infectious types of bacteria. It uses all the known benefits of Active Manuka Honey and comes in an easy to administer topical application.

Benefits

  • The antibacterial activity of honey is due primarily to enzymically produced Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
  • There is a NON-PEROXIDE antibacterial substance(s) present in some New Zealand Manuka Honey
  • NON-PEROXIDE ACTIVITY antibacterial quality is beneficial for topical application and may also control the bacterial invasion of damaged skin.
  • The advantage of AMH 25% Cream is that it can easily and frequently be applied to minor cuts and damaged skin when external bacterial invasion could be a problem

When to use

• Minor cuts or wounds
• Bites - insect or animal
• Grazes
• Skin irritation or inflammation
• Possibility of bacterial invasion

Directions for use

  1. Apply AMH 25% Cream directly onto the area requiring care, normally no dressing is required to hold the cream in place.
  2. Apply daily or more frequently if rubbed or licked off. AMH 25% forms a waterproof film over the damaged skin.
  3. For skin areas with minor damage, repeated cover applications of AMH 25% Cream will protect and soothe the skin. Apply onto a dressing or covering the area with a dressing may be required if likely to be rubbed or licked off.
  4. Infection/colonisation resolved: As soon as possible (no infection present) cover the damaged skin area with FiltaBac® Cream to allow the skin to breath and recover naturally. No dressing is required with the FiltaBac application.

Wither wound

7th Mar 2016
Mya
  • VioVet Customer Since: March 2015
  • From: middlesex, United Kingdom

I would be grateful to learn if this product is recommended for the use of an open wither wound?
I would be grateful to learn what you would recommend to use to clean the wound prior to application? Please note, I am currently using saline solution to clean and Veterinus Derma Gel for the healing process.
Many thanks

You will never go far wrong with cleaning an open wound using normal saline solution. It is usually as good as anything, though very dirty, infected wounds might respond better to something like Dermisol solution. I am sure it will be fine to continue with the saline though. Afterwards, the honey might well be beneficial. It is certainly quite an appealing and trendy treatment these days, but there is significant scientific support for its use too. It might work very well on the wound you are treating but it is difficult for me to say without seeing it, or knowing how it arose. To be sure, you should discuss this with your own vet first.

Cracked heel (horse)

22nd Feb 2016
Louise
  • VioVet Customer Since: July 2013
  • From: Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

Horse has been treated with antibiotics and anti inflammatories. The scabs have been removed. Horse is being kept in until skin has healed. Will this cream help with healing of cracks/sores? Or is there anything else you can recommend.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

The treatment provided so far will hopefully be effective, but this cream is usually appropriate for this type of problem and should indeed help as well. It is always worth checking with your own vet before trying any additional treatment, but it should be fine to use.

Human application

18th Jun 2015
VioVet Visitor

can you use active Manuka honey cream to human skin?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Theoretically you certainly can, but we are not able to give medical advice for humans and so you should talk to your doctor or a pharmacist.

Deep cut to horses hind leg

23rd Apr 2015
Simone
  • VioVet Customer Since: November 2012
  • From: london, United Kingdom

Would you advise the use of this on a deep laceration of a horses hind leg. The cut has been stitched, however the vet is unsure whether they will actually stay, due to the location. Currently bandaged and no cream being used, just antibiotics and bute.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This cream might well help and it is worth using. Changing bandages regularly is also advised.

Use on dog mouth/lips

11th Apr 2015
clair wright

my dog has allergies and itches her lips/mouth. can this be used safely on dogs lips.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yes this is safe to use on lips and around the mouth, but inevitably it will tend to be licked off before it has had much chance to do its job. You can try it and hopefully it will help. (It is vaguely possible that consuming the honey will have a beneficial effect on the allergies, but that is another story.)

Cat suitability

31st Mar 2015
Sue

Is this product suitable for a cat in an area which he is licking persistently - I know that many products may be toxic to cats? Thank you for your help.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This is safe enough for cats to lick, though repeated licking is often a big part of the problem with this sort of situation. You might be able to cover the area, or apply it at a time when the cat is distracted by other things (feeding etc). The honey itself is not a problem though.
