How to Use
Directions:
  • Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 1% is a prescription antibacterial medication that is used topically on burns to prevent and treat bacterial and yeast infections.
  • Before treating your pet with Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 1%, wash your hands and then clean the affected area of your pet's skin as directed by your veterinarian. Once your pet's wound is clean, wash your hands thoroughly again and put on sterile disposable gloves. This is to avoid introducing additional bacteria and other infective agents into the burned area of your pet's skin.
  • Apply the cream once or twice a day, as directed. After application, you may leave the wound uncovered, or cover it with a sterile gauze bandage. It is important that your pet's burn be covered with the cream at all times, so if the cream rubs off on a bandage, your pet's bedding or other cloth, you may need to reapply the cream. Always reapply cream if your pet bathes or gets wet.
Tip:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Wear sterile gloves while applying, and apply only to cleaned areas.

Following your veterinarian's directions, apply enough cream to cover the burn wounds in a layer about 1/16th of an inch thick. For reference, a penny is approximately 1/16th of an inch thick. Continue to apply cream to your pet for as long as you've been directed to by your veterinarian even if your pet's burn appears to have greatly improved. However, do not continue application longer than directed.
Storage:

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep out of reach of children.

Customer Reviews
Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 1% is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I use this on my horse when he gets cut, bitten and his hide ripped off him from the other horses due to very rough play, or for very nasty bug bites, too much butt rubbing against a barn or fence and it becomes red, bloody and swollen. He heals in no time fast. I have never seen anything like it. I highly recommend this product. Just make sure that you clean the infected area as good as you can before application.

Q&A

can it be used for human?

Asked by: jambo
Yes. My roommate used it on herself for a serious abrasion injury. Later, when my kitty ripped out a claw, she offered it as better than neosporin. I looked it up online to see if it was animal safe, and she was genuinely surprised to see it on a petmed website.

If my dog licks it of , should I reapply?

Asked by: Belle
After application, you may leave the wound uncovered, or cover it with a sterile gauze bandage and also following any specific directions from your veterinarian. It is important that your pet's burn be covered with the cream at all times, so if the cream rubs off on a bandage, your pet's bedding or other cloth, you may need to reapply the cream. Always reapply cream if your pet bathes or gets wet.

what if my dog licks the area after treatment with Silvadene for hot spots? Is this dangerous to him?

Asked by: sku
A little bit from licking it off wont hurt him. Have you considered trying some type of collar at least until the wounds start healing better ?
