MediTek Silver Wound Dressings
Meditek silver wound dressings include an ‘active layer’ of Zorflex® activated carbon technology with silver. This layer provides these dressings with powerful and effective antibacterial properties. They are designed to provide a multi-functional, technology driven solution to veterinary wound care. The micro porous structure allows the wound dressing to adsorb wound odour with the other components absorbing wound exudate.
The antibacterial action of Meditek Silver dressings helps to promote and maintain a healthy wound environment, enhancing wound healing rates. Zorflex® has been scientifically tested for antibacterial effectiveness against many types of bacteria including the veterinary pathogens Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Dermatophilus congolensis. Test results confirmed that Zorflex® was very effective.
Meditek wound dressings are available in 2 sizes;
- 10cm x 10cm
- 15cm x 25cm
Each dressing can be cut to size or shape.
Meditek dressings are non-medicated, non-invasive and carry no risk phrases.
The Mudtek Range
Interestingly, we have found that there are numerous common names for or associated with mud fever and mud fever types of symptom such as:
- Mud rash
- Greasy heel
- Cracked heels
- Dew poisoning
- Scabs or sore legs
- Pastern dermatitis
- Rain scald or rain rot if on the horse’s back or body
- Lymphangitis or swollen legs
We find it fascinating that what you know it as is often determined by where you are in the country or even in the world! If you know mud fever or mud rash as something else then please do let us know – we would love to hear from you and add it to our list …
Our research shows that many horse owners react to problems after they have occurred and end up with a large vets bill – here at Fabtek Solutions we encourage you to think about and do something about maintaining a healthy environment of your horse’s legs BEFORE they occur. Simple eh?!
