Fight infection the Equi-Med way
The equi-med products incorporate a layer of 100% activated carbon fabric with silver, or as we like to call it ‘the magic cloth’.
This fabric has very effective antibacterial properties, as the surface of the carbon has a permanent electrostatic charge which attracts bacteria from a wound or from the horse’s skin into the carbon structure where they are retained and killed by silver. Antimicrobial testing carried out by Lincoln University has scientifically proven the fabric to be very effective at capturing and killing bacteria associated with veterinary wounds (Pseudomonas aeroginosa) and skin diseases such as mudfever (Detmatophilus congolensis). Removal of bacteria from the horse’s skin reduces the risk of bacterial skin disease such as mudfever or cracked heels. Removal of bacteria from a wound promotes a healthy wound environment which can accelerate wound healing and reduce the risk of granulation tissue. This fabric has also been shown to reduce swelling.
Activated carbon fabric with silver is commonly used in human wound dressings and as the fabric can be regenerated by washing, the equine boot products are like ‘large re-usable wound dressings’. The boot products are excellent at treating and preventing infected wounds and bacterial skin diseases such as mudfever and cracked heels. They can be used on a daily basis as a preventative measure and can also be used as a treatment when infection of the skin or wound are present.
