Veterinarian Creates All-Purpose, Honey-Based Remedy to Promote Fast Healing in Horses

For the Treatment of Sunburn, Dermatitis, Allergic Reactions, Hot Spots, Thrush, Saddle Sores, Cuts and Abrasions, Skin Infections, Catastrophic Wounds
June 1, 2009 - PRLog -- After years of searching for the perfect product for the kinds of injuries and skin afflictions she saw every day in her equine practice, Cheryl L. Detamore, DVM, created MeliHeal All-Purpose Healing Salve™, an all-natural, honey-based remedy, to encourage fast healing.

With a unique blend of honey—an ancient remedy for the treatment of infected wounds—and natural healing ingredients, MeliHeal helps prevent infection, repair damaged tissue and encourage skin growth. It has proven an effective treatment for a wide range of equine ailments—from skin infections and allergic reactions to catastrophic wounds and soft-tissue injuries.

“As a veterinarian to the horse industry for years, I’ve seen every kind of cut, abrasion and open wound there is,” Dr. Detamore says. “Oftentimes, these injuries are challenging to treat—bandages won’t stick, sutures are impossible, and most topical products just won’t adhere to the wound.

“That’s why I developed MeliHeal. With a soothing combination of honey and essential oils, MeliHeal’s anti-microbial properties encourage fast healing, even in the most severe cases. And its composition allows it to readily adhere to the wound site, forming a protective barrier to prevent infection.”

MeliHeal’s unique combination of ingredients promotes healing by encouraging the growth of healthy cells and the re-growth of proper tissue—not brittle scar tissue or “proud flesh,” which is inflexible and difficult to combat once established.

MeliHeal is made up of three primary ingredients—natural lanolin, honey and a proprietary blend of essential oils, or plant extracts. The lanolin softens tissue, keeping it supple and moist to promote healthy healing, and is important for the re-growth of hair. Honey is a natural anti-bacterial that facilitates healing. The essential oils, a natural insect repellant, are anti-microbial, increase circulation to the wound, help draw out fluids, reduce swelling and are an excellent source of vitamin E, which is vital in promoting tissue re-growth. And the aromatic effects of MeliHeal are very soothing to the animal.
