I bought this ointment from a vet in 2002 and it was only available from a vet at that point. I am so excited to have it available "over the counter". This ointment is the best for cuts, wounds, burns, etc. I have tried all others, corona, aloe heal, scarlet oil alone, etc... none do the job like this one for fast healing. I love the thick pastiness that really sticks to the wound as well.
