To encourage healing in horses, dogs and cats when this is impaired by the presence of necrotic tissue, coagulum, debris or wax. This may occur in traumatic injury, surgical wounds and otitis externa
VETSENSE OTIDERM aids in the removal of dead tissue and embedded debris by causing maximum differential swelling between living and dead areas. This is achieved in two ways;
The low pH causes separation of collagen molecules by rupturing the hydrogen bonding. The optimum pH to achieve this effect is between pH2 and pH3.
The organic acids react with carboxyl and amino groups in the collagen. The insertion of the organic acid forces the collagen chains apart.
In both cases, the devitalised tissues absorb water and swell markedly. Healthy tissues are unaffected because of natural barriers to the organic acids and sufficient buffering capacity to maintain a near neutral pH
