Hedgerow Hounds' high quality, pure Green Clay is a must-have for your natural first aid kit.
Green Clay has excellent drawing properties so can be used for drying up wet eczema and hot spots and helping control infection in wounds and abscesses. Green Clay is so versatile and can be used for dogs, cats, horses, sheep and other livestock. It forms a protective layer over injuries and also naturally repels insects. It has a calming and soothing effect on a dog’s itchy or traumatised skin, breaking the itch, scratch cycle. It is completely safe should your dog accidentally lick or consume it.
Green clay can be made into a thick paste with a little water and spread onto the effected area. This acts as a protective barrier for sore or fragile wounds and as the clay dries, moisture is drawn away from any wet areas of skin.
If used dry, it can be applied with a clean cotton ball and dusted onto the area or with a small, clean brush. This is particularly useful for instantly calming an inflamed area or itchy rash.
For infected areas or those that are oozing the area should be cleaned in between applications. An excellent product for this is Leucillin antiseptic spray which can be found on the shop.
This product should not replace veterinary treatment if it is needed or if serious infection is present in a wound.
