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:

Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 1% is for topical use only. Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Wear sterile gloves while applying, and apply only to cleaned areas.
