Antiseptics

Antiseptics are extremely important for the biosecurity and sterilization of living tissue. Antiseptics are defined by their ability to reduce the possibility of infection and sepsis in living tissue, they are a topical application generally used for cuts and abrasions. Antiseptics are not disinfectants, which are used to kill microorganisms on non-living objects. Antiseptics are generally used in surgery, being applied to the skin in preparation for the procedures and on the wound post-operation. They are an extremely effective preventative measure when dealing with open wounds, especially on an animal living in unsanitized areas such as field or paddocks. Horses are exposed to a lot of bacteria and viruses, and dirt and mud very likely to make contact their open wounds, which puts the horse at great risk of infection. The use of antiseptics is a great way to ensure wounds remain clean and free from bacteria, so your animal’s cuts don’t become life-threatening illnesses. Some of the antiseptic solutions vary in strengths, they are most effective when used in the correct solution. This is because a weak solution may not kill the microorganisms but a potent solution may damage the animal’s tissue.
