Advantages of Vetericyn Plus VF

Safe and Effective

Vetericyn Plus VF Wound & Skin Care products are available in liquid and hydrogel formulations offering the best in safety and effectiveness. The Vetericyn family of products is appropriate for all phases of wound healing.

Vetericyn Plus VF products are as safe as they are effective:
Non-cytotoxic
No stinging or sensitization
No ocular irritation
No oral toxicity safe if licked or ingested
Non-caustic
Contains no antibiotics, steroids, or alcohol
No contraindications

Vetericyn Plus VF is a super-oxidized hypochlorous solution for cleansing, irrigating, debriding, and moisturizing wounds that is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing to the animal. In vitro testing of the preservative in Vetericyn Plus shows microbial inhibition activity for a broad range of microorganisms including staphylococcal species and pseudomonas aerugenosa.

Non-Toxic, Non-Irritating Formula

Vetericyn Plus is non-cytotoxic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing and has no oral toxicity. These safety attributes allow the liquid and hydrogel formulas to be used on all dermal tissues without harming fibroblast cells.

Drug/Treatment Interactions

There are no known drug/treatment interactions or contraindications with Vetericyn Plus.

Long Shelf Life, Stable Solution

Vetericyn Plus is available in various easy-to-use dispensing containers for in-clinic and post-procedure care at home. Products have an average shelf life of 24 months due to the unique manufacturing process that optimizes HOCl and pH levels.

Bacterial Burden and Cytotoxicity

Bacterial burden can seriously affect chronic wounds by prolonging the inflammatory stage as well as decreasing wound strength via collagenase production in bacteria, neutrophils and macrophages. Vetericyn Plus VF is a super-oxidized hypochlorous autolytic debridement solution for cleansing, irrigating and moisturizing wounds while staying non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing to the animal. In vitro testing of the preservative in Vetericyn Plus VF shows microbial inhibition activity for a broad range of microorganisms including staphylococcal species.

FAQ

The active ingredient in Vetericyn Plus is hypochlorous acid. NaOCl is an oxidizer, and in its sodium salt form sodium hypochlorite (HOCl), or in its calcium salt form calcium hypochlorite (Ca(ClO)2), can be used as a bleach.
Vetericyn Plus is manufactured by generating an electrolyte intermediate based on an electrochemical process called electrolysis and formulating the intermediate into the finished product. The basic principle of electrolysis is well established. However, the automation effort to scale up the electrolysis to a well-controlled, commercial manufacturing process is highly complex. A multi-chamber flow system with sophisticated hardware and software design is required. The system is operated by highly trained Innovacyn staff under a cGMP environment. The formulation compounding step is similar to a pharmaceutical manufacturing process. In-process quality control and finished product testing of every production batch assures that high quality standards are met for Vetericyn Plus VF.

The active ingredient in Vetericyn Plus is hypochlorous acid. NaOCl is an oxidizer, and in its sodium salt form sodium hypochlorite (HOCl), or in its calcium salt form calcium hypochlorite (Ca(ClO)2), can be used as a bleach. Chemical formulas are HOCl and NaOCl respectively. The pH of bleach is 11-13 whereas the pH of Vetericyn Plus VF is 6.5-6.8. This difference is very important in safety and non-cytotoxicity. Although both are oxychlorine compounds, the single change in formula makes a big difference in activity. It is similar to what happens when you take carbon dioxide (CO2) and remove one oxygen molecule, (CO) carbon monoxide.
Hypochlorous acid is very pH-dependent, so to keep the safety and effectiveness, Vetericyn Plus VF is produced and maintained in a pH range of 6.5-6.8.
Because veterinarians see more severe problems, the Vetericyn Plus VF products contain a higher concentration of HOCl which provides effectiveness when exposed to higher organic load and bioburden.
  • Acute and chronic wounds
  • Partial and full-thickness wounds
  • Stage I-IV pressure injuries
  • Pre and post-surgical procedures
  • Dermatoses (Hydrogel)
  • Urine and fecal scalding
  • Hot spots
  • Trauma wounds
  • 1st and 2nd degree burns
  • Abrasions and minor irritations of the skin
Effectiveness and safety! Many studies have shown the antimicrobial effectiveness of HOCl and one of the impressive attributes is the quick kill time. Not only is it safe if licked or ingested but it is also non-cytotoxic, so it does not damage healthy tissue or slow down healing.
The Vetericyn Plus VF liquid formula is optimal for cleansing, flushing, and debriding wounds. It should be used at the initial presentation to thoroughly clean the area and set the stage for the best outcome. Once the wound is clean the liquid can be used to moisten dressings and to continue cleaning the wound as needed. Use of the liquid should be continued for a highly exudative wound. For wounds that require more moisture the hydrogel is optimal, as it donates moisture to tissue and can be used with or without a bandage. The hydrogel is also beneficial for many skin issues as it provides a longer adherence and offers some protection from environmental factors.
Vetericyn Plus VF products can be used several times a day or at each dressing change.
Components in Vetericyn Plus VF do not have a known history of contraindications. Scientific studies have been conducted to verify the safety and compatibility of Vetericyn Plus VF with common advanced wound care products and modalities.
There have not been reported issues with the use of Vetericyn Plus VF on patients of any age or health status.
There have not been any reported issues with the use of Vetericyn Plus VF on pregnant or breeding animals.
Vetericyn Plus VF is safe for the animal, user and the environment. No special handling or disposal considerations are required.
