Mānuka Vet’s Skin & Wound Crème is 80% New Zealand mānuka honey (350MG+), 18% lanolin and 2% plant oils (citronella and rosemary). Independently tested, filtered, sterilised, vet-recommended and medical grade certified. It satisfies World Veterinary Association directives for an antibiotic free future. The crème is non-doping for racing and competition and is suitable for all your pets including horses, dogs and cats.
The lanolin increases the temperature stability, making it more pliable when cold and more viscous when warm, reducing run-off. In addition to this, the lanolin makes the crème water repellent. The plant oils have natural insect repellent properties, impeding both flies and ants from making contact with the wound.
This sterile and filtered 100% New Zealand product has been independently certified as containing >350mg/kg of methylglyoxal, ensuring that the crème has all of the beneficial attributes that comes naturally with high quality Mānuka honey.
The crème is designed to be used on wounds that no longer need bandaging (such as distal limb wounds with a good bed of granulation tissue), those that don’t need to be bandaged (such as minor abrasions, partial thickness wounds and ‘mud-fever’) and those that can’t be bandaged (such as wounds of the upper limb and body).
Five facts about Mānuka Vet™’s mānuka honey production
To make sure that customers receive the best products possible Mānuka Vet™ are very strict on quality management. Below you can learn about some of the processes they have in place to ensure the quality and consistency of their products.
All of Mānuka Vet™’s mānuka honey is traceable to its origin. The company has a preference for working with Māori landowners for the social and cultural benefits that can be generated and the quality of the authentic mānuka honey they produce.
All Mānuka Vet™ products contain mānuka honey that has been sample tested by independent laboratories and meets the standards set by the NZ Ministry of Primary Industries for Mānuka Honey.
To ensure sterility the mānuka honey undergoes gamma irradiation or heat treatment to make it perfect for helping to heal wounds. Gamma irradiation removes unwanted spores without in any way reducing the antiseptic and anti-bacterial potency of the honey.
Each product batch undergoes random product quality checks before that batch is able to go on sale.
Tried & Tested
Last but not least, the Mānuka Vet™ team use the products on their own animals and strongly believe in the possibilities of reducing the use of antibiotics in treatment when circumstances oblige.
