What is Cetrigen?
Why Choose Cetrigen?
1. Contains an antiseptic to protect wounds from infection
Cetrigen contains cetrimide, a well known antiseptic compound with antibacterial properties that inhibits the growth of bacteria in the wound and helps to prevent re-infection. Infection is a risk to any wound, no matter how minor, and if it becomes established in a wound it can delay the healing process and lead to more severe or additional problems like scarring and proud flesh.
2. Contains two powerful insect repellents
DEET contained in Cetrigen is regarded as one of the most effective insect repelling compounds available. DEET acts by creating a shield of repellent vapour as it evaporates. This shield confuses insects so they can’t locate the animal to land on. Di-N-propyl isocinchomeronate is also an effective insect repellent and works with DEET to create a stronger barrier. These two insect repellents provide effective protection for wounds to prevent them from damage due to insects.
3. Registered for use on all animals
Cetrigen broad species application means that it is a versatile treatment option for all animals. This means there is no need to keep multiple products on hand to treat different animals in multiple species households. Cetrigen can be safely used on all domestic pets and farm animals.
4. Contains a purple dye
Cetrigen is sometimes known as purple spray due to the unique bright purple colouring of the product. A purple dye is included in the formulation so that the area treated can be easily identified to ensure full coverage. The dye will remain intact on the wound under most conditions so that treated areas can be quickly identified each day.
5. Convenient presentation
Cetrigen is available in a 100g aerosol and a 500mL trigger spray. Two practical presentations to suit a wide variety of situations and uses. The trigger spray applicator is noiseless and is also adjustable to provide various spray patterns to enable adequate coverage of the area being treated. The aerosol presentation does not contain compounds that are harmful to the environment and comes in a conveniently sized robust can.
When to use Cetrigen?
1. First aid kit in a bottle
Formulated to treat cuts, scrapes and superficial wounds Cetrigen is ideal to have on hand to deal with minor injuries and mishaps. Ideal as a first line defence for emergency medicine or as a maintenance product to protect wounds during healing. Use on open wounds helps to dry the area.
2. On wounds at risk from infection
Open wounds are very susceptible to the risk of infection, which can often cause a wound to become a much more serious problem than it was originally. Animals that are kept outside especially those that live under paddock conditions have a very high risk of infection. The active ingredient cetrimide in Cetrigen is a well known antiseptic compound and assists in protecting wounds from infection by preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.
3. To protect wounds from insects
The moist environment of wounds attracts flies and other insects. These insects can cause anything from mild irritation to delayed wound healing and myiasis. Insects biting or burrowing into wounds can cause wounds to become damaged beyond their original severity, as well as providing a source of infection and contamination. Additionally the irritation and annoyance caused by insects around wounds can lead to animals causing further harm to themselves in trying to avoid the insects.
4. After minor surgical procedures
The antibacterial and insect repellent properties of Cetrigen will assist in providing protection to wounds left by minor surgical procedures such as marking, castration and sutures.
