Nolvasan Ointment and Shampoo
Nolvasan is a disinfectant that comes in a number of forms: shampoo, ointment, and otic cleansing solution that you pour onto a wound. It's used to kill bacteria and fungal infections, which makes it a good ear cleaner, a shampoo if the cat or dog has a skin problem relating to fungus, or as a sort of Neosporin for pets that you can put on minor wounds to keep them from getting infected. It uses chlorhexidine diacetate as the active ingredient, which can kill about 60 different common kinds of microorganisms.
Are there any side effects to Nolvasan? Is it safe for my pet?
There aren't any common side effects, but you should watch for hypersensitivity, because some pets can be allergic to it. Redness, swelling, or irritation of the skin mean you need to contact a vet.
