    Manuka AD

    Manuka AD is a sterile, absorbent wound dressing, infused with manuka honey.

    Wound healing:

    Wounds heal by means of a process of events that can affect the wound healing positively or negatively. Research in the 1960s resulted in the development of advanced wound dressings that tried to have a positive effect on the wound environment, in order to achieve optimal conditions for healing. Since then, many modern products have been developed that reduce the bacterial load and/or ensure a healthy level of moisture in the wound.

    Resistance to antibiotics is largely responsible for a transition to increasingly localised treatments of wounds. The rediscovery of more traditional methods of wound treatment found that honey can have beneficial effects on wounds.

    Manuka honey:

    Honey, Manuka honey in particular, is one of these old remedies. The honey, made from the nectar of the Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparia), has proven to be of great value in modern wound care. It can positively affect the wound environment and is frequently and successfully used for its powerful antimicrobial, debridement and anti-inflammatory properties. The honey is now a routine option for all types of wounds in veterinary practices.

    Wound dressings:

    The Manuka wound dressings have strong anti-microbial properties. There are two options for wound dressings available. An absorbent dressing (Manuka AD) is used to clean the wound, and when the wound is clean and the process of granulation (formation of granular connective tissue in a healing wound) has begun, a non-adhesive dressing Manuka ND can be applied. Both versions are available in 5x5cm and 10x12.5cm dressings, as well as rolls (10x100 cm), which are suited to large vertical wounds (e.g. on a horse's leg). Manuka honey is also available in pure form, in the 15g tube of Woundgel.

    Key features:

    • Primary wound dressing
    • 100% Leptospermum scoparium honey from New Zealand impregnated into acetate gauze
