New to Veterinary Medicine

Antiseptic and Disinfectant

A new antiseptic - chlorine dioxide complex - developed by Frontier Pharmaceutical Inc.  is now available in various product formulations for use in veterinary medicine. This versatile biocide solves many of the disinfection problems encountered in veterinary medicine. These range from the management of topical infections, deep and post surgical wounds, to controlling chronic skin and ear infections including malasezzia and ringworm and on to disinfecting hands and sterilizing surfaces.

In-vitro laboratory studies have demonstrated that active, stabilized chlorine dioxide complex kills bacteria in one minute and is equally microbicidal against viruses, yeast and fungi.

The active complex is safe for topical use, non irritating to the skin or damaging to the fur. It promotes healing and reduces scaring. Chlorine dioxide complex is now available as a stable single part solution that unlike its prior form, avoids the need for separate solutions to be mixed and measured. This pharmaceutical development is patent pending, and a major step forward in simplifying the handling and dispensing of this fast acting disinfectant.

Currently, there are 2 new chlorine dioxide products available for use in the veterinary market including Ciderm(R) SP , Topical Wound Antiseptic, and Earigant(R) SP ear cleanser/otitis treatment. There are several other products under development including an antiseptic wound irrigation and shampoo wash solution, mouth spray and disinfecting / sterilizing surface spray.
