The Zymox Topical Cream with HC 0.5% is an effective and non-invasive way of treating and preventing hot spots on your pets. Those itchy, bloody patches and raw spots on their skin can cause long term damage if they are not treated early on. Ideal as a treatment cream for wounds and other skin infections, the cream can be applied once a day or as needed without pre-cleaning or scrubbing their skin. The product features LP3 Enzyme System that reacts with the pus and debris to kill any microbes. This product is a safe and non-toxic cream, even if a pet licks the application site. The topical cream has a catheter tip that is ideal to use for hard to reach application sites such as skin folds.
