RE: [RC] [RC] furacin and wounds (honey) - Marv Walker

The very best thing I have found for bad wounds is honey. I discovered this when I had a dog that had 3rd degree burns over 25 percent of her body. All the normal burn remedies were not working and the wound was awful. My vet found some articles about honey for wounds online and we decided to try it. We soaked gauze strips in the honey and applied them to the wound then bandaged it and changed it every day. The wound stayed hydrated, sterile and skin grew back at a rapid rate. It did take 3 months but we grew a new dog!
I have used honey on my horse with great results several times as well. Once for a bad coronet band cut, once for a gash in the head below the ear and once when a stick punctured my horse in the inner thigh 4 inches deep. I squirted the honey into the wound with a syringe. Each time the cut healed in record time with no infection what so ever.

The ONLY reason doctors don't use honey is because the
FDA & AMA won't let them.

You want to use raw honey and not the processed stuff
you find in the supermarket.
