FiltaBac is an antibacterial cream and sun block. FiltaBac has a SPF of 29-33 and works as a sunscreen through titanium dioxide and zinc oxide physically reflecting UV. It protects against sunburn and photosensitivity.
A thin film of FiltaBac cream will cover and protect damaged skin areas with a breathable covering. FiltaBac is active against many strains of Gram+ve and Gram-ve bacteria. Because of its adhesive properties, it provides long term antibacterial protection for:
- broken, grazed skin areas
- bites from other animals
- cuts and gashes
- irritated skin
- mud fever
- rain scald
- clipper rash
- fly/tick bites
- bit pressure and mouth damage
- girth galls/girth rub/saddle pressure areas
It can be used instead of a traditional bandage for those hard-to-bandage areas. It forms a barrier against dirt, pathogens and chemical contamination; e.g. for dogs prone to plant contact allergies.
How do I use FiltaBac?
As a sun block, apply a visible film to affected areas once or twice daily. Apply more frequently if the cream is being physically removed.
For antibacterial protection, apply a reasonably thick covering coat of cream to affected areas. Re-apply for 2-3 days without removing original cover. After 2-3 days gently remove the FiltaBac cream from the area by using warm water and a mild soap or dilute antiseptic solution. Pat or air-dry (do not rub). Recover with FiltaBac cream.
As an absorbing protective cover, apply a thick film of cream to damaged areas and maintain cover with daily applications.
