Silver Sulfadiazine

Burn Cream for Pets

Silver Sulfadiazine is most commonly used to treat sunburns, second-degree burns, and third-degree burns. The cream may also be used to prevent catheter-related infections.

Silver Sulfadiazine is an antimicrobial medication for topical use. It prevents and treats bacterial and fungal infections and is useful when treating burns, sunburns, abrasions, and other conditions. The cream also offers relief of itching associated with healing.

Benefits of Silver Sulfadiazine:

  • Eases healing-related itching
  • Speeds recovery from burns
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Prevents and treats infections from yeast, fungi, and bacteria
  • Soothes and promotes healing of sunburns
  • Not associated with severe side effects

Use this medication only as directed by your veterinarian.

For external use only.

Read precautionary statements carefully before use.

Directions:

  1. Put on gloves before applying the cream.
  2. Apply Silver Sulfadiazine in a closed room with minimal air circulation. This helps prevent dust, dirt, and debris from getting into the cream or onto your wound.
  3. Cut any dressing to the appropriate size.
  4. Apply the cream to the dressing using a sterile instrument.
  5. Use enough cream to cover your entire wound with a thickness of 1/16 inch.
  6. Do not be alarmed if the cream turns your gauze a brownish color. This is normal.

Use every 12 hours for 2 days. After that time, use once every 24 hours until directed to stop by your veterinarian.

Storage:

Store Silver Sulfadiazine in a tightly closed container, out of reach of children and animals, and at a controlled room temperature of between 59 and 86 degrees F. Store in a cool and dry, well-ventilated area.
