So, I broke out my GreenSalve. GreenSalve is advertised as being anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-parisitic, and anti-inflammatory. It is recommended for use on cuts, abrasions, burns, rain rot, mud fever, hot spots, ringworm, and dry, cracked skin. The salve is all natural and is safe to be ingested by "all four-legged friends."
GreenSalve has a thicker consistency than some of the other ointments available on the market, which proved to be an advantage during the hot, humid summer we're experiencing. The salve is thick, allowing me to layer it over the wounds to create a waterproof and bug-proof barrier. It didn't "melt" off of the wounds - a common issue with thinner ointments, I've found - and was still in place and protecting the wounds when I came to reapply it the next day.
The two-ounce can of salve was more than enough to treat the wounds; I still have more than half of the can left. I really liked that the can featured a screw-on top; it cuts down on the risk of the can opening or leaking inside my First-Aid kit, while meaning that the can is still easy enough for my arthritic hands to open.
All in all, I was impressed with GreenSalve. The wounds healed up seamlessly (silly me forgot to get before and after pictures), and it felt good knowing that I was treating my horse with an all natural product. The consistency of the GreenSalve is excellent - easy enough to dig your finger down into for application, but thick enough so that it will stay in place on wounds. I was impressed with this product and plan to use it again.
GreenSalve is available from Smart Barn.
