Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions 

Q: My dog has a wound on his/her nose. How many times a day should I treat the wound?
A: We recommend most wounds be treated twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening should work fine. Some wounds may improve with just once a day treatment, but most wounds will heal quicker when using the product twice a day. 

Q: After applying SILVERQUINE GEL, should I cover the wound and gel with a bandage?
A: We recommend covering the wound with a secondary bandage. Exposure to the eliments may slow the healing process. 

Q: Will SILVERQUINE attract flies or other pests to the wound?
A: SILVERQUINE does not attract flies or pests, so leaving the wound uncovered should not cause any discomfort for your animal.

Q: How long does it take to clear up my cat's wound when I use SILVERQUINE GEL?
A: Healing times vary from animal to animal depending on the type of wound and on the immune status of your cat. Significant open wounds (3-4 inches) may take treatment for 10-30 days. Smaller wounds may heal more quickly. If you cat's wound has not shown any signs of treatment in the first 10-15 days, we recommend you consult your local veterinarian. 

Q: What should I use to irrigate or clean the wound prior to putting the gel on the wound?
A: We recommend using Silverquine Wound Wash Spray to irrigate the wound and rinse out any dirt or other matter that may be in the wound. The wound wash spray should be used prior to the administration of gel to the wound. Clean water will do the trick as well.

Q: When using this gel, can the wound and/or gel be exposed to sunlight?
A: Yes 

Q: If my pet has an allergy to medications, do I have to worry about an allergy to Silverquine?
A: Silverquine is a silver based technology. As such, you should not be concerned about an allergy to Silverquine gel if your animal has allergies to other products. As with any other product, if your animal has a reaction after using Silverquine gel, please notify your veterinarian immediately. Please also inform us at Silverquine. To date, we have had no reported allergies to this therapy other than animals that are specifically alergic to silver, which is rare.

Q: If I use SILVERQUINE frequently, will resistance develop to this therapy?
A: Antimicrobial resistance is always a concern with synthetic antibiotics. With Silverquine gel, we have not seen a documented case of resistance yet. Due to gel's unique mechanism of action, resistance to the therapy at any point in time is unlikely. As always, only use this therapy or other therapies when needed so as to no promote potential resistance. 

Q: How do I submit testimonials about my animal's progress with this therapy?
A: Email us a
