The antibiotic resistance (the phenomenon whereby bacteria become resistant to antibiotics activity) is today a huge and alarming problem both in human and veterinary medicine. The emergence of bacterial species resistant to antibiotics is partly due to an increase in antibiotic prescriptions for animals, also when they are not always necesessary. This means that many antibiotics are no longer effective and we may be victims of diseases that we thought won.
For the same reason, antibiotic resistance is the cause of worrying therapeutic problems also for pets. For more than 30 years ICF has been researching new formulations alternative to antibiotics, but equally effective, especially in case of otitis and pyoderma. After 10 years of research in collaboration with Departments of Clinical and Experimental Medicine and of Medical and Veterinary Sciences of the University of Parma and of the
Parma University Hospital, ICF patented AMP2041, an antimicrobial peptide of synthesis that proved to have antibacterial activity.
This peptide became part of many formulations. First of all, Peptivet® Oto Gel, eudermic otological gel that, thanks to the well known features of its components (Chlorhexidine digluconate max 0,07% / Tris-EDTA / Vitamin PP /Zinc PCA / Glicerofosfoinositol lysine salt), improves physiological state of the skin, counteracts irritations and restores the skin barrier.
Moreover, it is ANTIBIOTIC FREE!
Every 40 hours after cleaning the ear, apply Peptivet oto gel inside it, according to given instructions. Massage gently the base of the external ear canal to allow for proper distribution of the product.
