10 Reasons you should be using VetMed

Why you should choose VetMed

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is the active ingredient in all VetMed products. HOCl is a naturally occurring multi-oxidant molecule produced by the body as a defense mechanism. It helps fight against invading bacteria and other microorganisms and is also produced by the body’s white blood cells to help promote healing and wound repair. VetMed products are formulated with your pet in mind and has been clinically tested for chronic wounds in animals. 

1. Veterinary recommended

All VetMed products are recognised and recommended by veterinarians across the world. In fact, our products are also stocked and sold in a number of veterinary clinics and vet stores across the country. VetMed products are also covered by OutSurance Pet Insurance, Dotsure.co.za, and MediPet

2. Free from all harmful impurities

Our HOCl solution is produced as a stable molecule on site through the electrolysis of water and salt. All VetMed products are free from steroids, antibiotics, iodine, tea tree oil, hydrogen peroxide, chlorhexidine, isopropyl alcohol, and benzalkonium chloride. 

3. Safe for all animals

Our products are natural, non-cytotoxic, and have a gentle formula. They are safe for all animal species and can be used at any life stage. VetMed is non-toxic and there are no concerns if accidentally licked or ingested. There are no harmful side-effects associated with HOCl the way there are with antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents. 

4. Non-stinging and non-irritating 

Unlike agents like rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide, HOCl will not cause discomfort to your pets, even when it is applied to open wounds. Both rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide are likely to cause your pets stress and have been found to harm sensitive and healing tissue. VetMed is gentle enough to be used on chronic wounds and is formulated to not burn, sting, or cause any other discomfort. Our products have a neutral pH for optimum effectiveness on animal skin.

5. 100% Natural and environmentally friendly 

VetMed products are all-natural and safe for the environment and have no harmful agents added. VetMed breaks down into a saline solution, leaves no chemical residue, and does not need to be rinsed off. Along with being environmentally friendly, VetMed can be administered without damaging or causing stains to furniture, carpets, or other household items. 

6. Fast-acting and effective 

VetMed products kill most bacteria, fungi, spores and viruses, and are able to safely disrupt the biofilm that protects bacteria. Hypochlorous acid is 80 to 100 times more powerful than bleach, and is able to kill 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. 

7. No antimicrobial resistance

Unlike with other antiseptics and antimicrobial agents like antibiotics, microbes do not build up a resistance to HOCl. This is vital to reducing the risk of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) across the globe. Learn more about how HOCl overcomes AMR here.
