AluShield is an aerosol bandage for wounds that protects
against bacterial infections. It creates a breathable, water-resistant
barrier through which bacteria cannot penetrate. In addition to its
use on cuts, scrapes, and other minor skin injuries, AluShield is useful
for dehorning, castration, tail docking, summer sores, and other purposes.
AluShield protects superficial wounds against bacterial
infection on several species. The protective layer allows oxygen to
pass through so wounds may heal efficiently, yet it prevents bacterial
contamination. AluShield leaves no unpleasant residue and is water-resistant;
however, the product washes off readily with soap and water when necessary.
Benefits of AluShield:
- Reduces the risk of bacterial infections

contamination of wounds
