Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Dermisol Cream, including answers from our team.
My vet has advised to use dermisol on my horses legs & wrap in cling film to soften scabs as he has vasculitis. I am waiting for my cream to be delivered. Can I use anything else in the meantim
I could not recommend anything else, it would be best to ask your own vet about this. Regular bathing in dilute salt water is generally very safe and helpful, but obviously more time intensive for you.
A week ago my hamster cut his tail, the end came off so I took him to the vets whom gave me Baytril oral 2.5% to give him 0.05mls daily for a week. I carried the instructions out for a week. My hamsters tail formed a scab over the cut, but I noticed his tail was bleeding again on the cut, where the end of the tail came off. I bathed his tail with warm salted water. Is there anything else I can do to heal his tail quickly, as it is distressing for me and my children. He is eating ok , climbing up the bars of his cage. Otherwise he is alert. Can I use dermisol on his tail or do I need to go back to the vets?
This is too difficult to answer by email. There might be an underlying reason for the original cut - it is not a place which tends to get cut generally. Whatever caused that, might still be present/happen again. This could be something to do with the cage etc, or something to do with the hamster itself (spontaneous lesion, not due to external trauma). If the hamster seems not to be distressed then you can continue treating the tail yourself. Dermisol is good at helping infected/contaminated wounds to heal. That might be the case. It might also be that your hamster has some odd sensation from the tail and has chewed at it, causing the problem. This can sometimes happen and can be very difficult to treat, because the animal itself prevents it from healing.
You would cause no harm with Dermisol, but this lesion might be more complicated than it first appears.
MY ROTTY FREQUENTLY GETS A SORE SUMWHERE ON HIS PAWS,WHICH HE CONSTANTLY LICKS.CAN YOU ADVISE ME?
This can have lots of causes. Sometimes it is just a sign that your dog is generally feeling itchy all over, but licking or nibbling at one part of his paw becomes a habit and provides some sort of relief to the overall feeling. When this happens, if you see a sore spot on the paw, it is generally self-inflicted damage through the excessive licking etc. There is nothing really wrong with that area and it would soon heal if left alone. Diligent routine flee treatment, a good diet and regular exercise are sometimes the best treatments for this type of sore. Applying anything to the paws can draw his attention to the area and make it worse. If in any doubt, it is best to see your vet about it.
