Use for Store lamb Footrot


How do you use this product when applying it directly to the wound on the Hogs feet.

  • Customer Service Advisor


Thank you for getting in touch.

You would add this to some water to soak the hog's feet in, and it can be done daily for 7 days.

Hope that helps,

Equine proud flesh removal


  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: middlesex, United Kingdom

I would be extremely grateful to learn if the copper sulphate can be used for getting rid of equine proud flesh?
If so I will be grateful to learn what I would need to mix it with, if anything and if it will heal the underlying wound underneath or or will I need to treat that again separately once the proud flesh is gone?
Please note, the wound was initially cleaned accordingly but has left a small amount of exuberant granulation tissue.
Many thanks

  • Non-Executive Director

I would not recommend using this without supervision from your vet. It can be used helpfully against proud flesh, but can "go too far" and impede wound healing. In a way it is a matter of "killing" the excessive granulation tissue, but not damaging the delicate edges of the skin wound which you want to cover over the deficit.

Tree stump killing


Hi, can this be used to kill tree stumps in it's supplied form ( i.e. straight from the tub ).

  • Non-Executive Director

Yes it can, but beware that the copper sulpahte can kill surrounding trees, grass etc. You should make sure you use it correctly to affect only this tree. (Normally packed into holes drilled into, but not through, the stump. Then covered with a water proof cover.)
