VetBiotek Products Bust Biofilms For Dogs and Cats

There’s a buzz in the air about bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics and these things called biofilms… So what is this all about? A biofilm is a collection of organic and inorganic, living and dead materials collected on a surface. Biofilms can be made of bacteria, yeast, and fungi, which stick themselves together with a slimy substance. Biofilms can be found wherever bacteria like to hang out like pet bowls, sinks, bathrooms, kitchens, etc. The slime-like substance of a biofilm also acts as a barrier to protect the bacteria allowing them to grow, reproduce, and thrive on whatever surface they have taken up residence. Learn more about biofilms.

Veterinarians have been on the lookout for these because they are making infections more difficult to get rid of, especially on the skin and ears. The biofilm protects the bacteria or fungus and does not allow antibiotics or medications to get in. The film must be broken in order for the antibiotics to get in do their job.

VetBiotek & MicroSilver

The VetBiotek line helps bust biofilms and offers a variety of topical shampoos, waterless mousse, sprays, wipes, and ear solutions. They are designed to help with antiseptic cleansing and aid in the treatment of skin and ear infections, seborrhea, allergies, and other skin conditions. VetBiotek uses a key ingredient called Microsilver BG, a pure microscopic metallic silver that acts as a natural antimicrobial. It works to break the biofilm coating, exposing the bacteria, causing them to break down and die.The Microsilver keeps working overtime to prevent bacteria from infecting the area again.
