Betadine solution is suitable for treating shallow cuts and puncture wounds. It prevents and treats infections in small and larger wounds, as well as reducing subsequent scar tissue. It has a non-stinging formula, making it very animal-friendly. Diluted Betadine solution is used for cleaning and rinsing infected wounds.
Suggested use for Betadine solution
Apply Betadine solution to the wound and surrounding skin directly from the bottle, or with cotton wool/sterilised gauze. Wounds should be treated twice a day until closed.
Take care when applying Betadine solution, as this is a thin solution. If it comes into contact with your clothes, dab the area with a piece of kitchen roll with vinegar (do not rub!) and then wash using your normal detergent.
Betadine Scrub is a mild disinfectant liquid soap without granules. It is suitable for disinfecting the skin and the hands. Avoid contact with open wounds, as this may delay healing.
Hand disinfectant uses
For cleaning fingernails, hands and arms: lather thoroughly with Betadine Scrub and rinse well with water.
Skin disinfectant uses
- Apply Betadine Scrub directly to the skin
- Massage well (with a little extra water if necessary) until it starts foaming and the colour becomes paler
- Rinse with lukewarm water
- Dry thoroughly, especially skin folds (such as between the toes)
Please note: Betadine Scrub should not be used on open wounds, as it contains detergents that can kill cells. Check instructions on our website or leaflet before using Betadine.
Betadine contains povidone-iodine as the active substance. Do not use on large areas of skin being treated by an overacted thyroid diagnosed by a veterinarian.
