Veterinarians can use Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) in many ways to support animal health and hygiene. HOCl’s antimicrobial properties make it useful in veterinary practices for wound care, disinfection, and general cleaning.

  • Wound Care: HOCl can be used to clean and irrigate wounds in animals. Its antimicrobial properties help reduce the risk of infection and promote healing. Veterinarians may use HOCl solution to flush and cleanse wounds on pets, livestock, and other animals.
  • Surgical Preparation: Before performing surgeries, veterinarians can use HOCl to disinfect the surgical area, instruments, and equipment. This helps create a sterile environment and reduces the risk of surgical site infections.
  • Disinfection of Surfaces: HOCl can be used to disinfect various surfaces within a veterinary clinic, including examination tables, kennels, cages, and waiting areas. Regular disinfection with HOCl helps prevent the spread of infectious agents among animals and staff.
  • Cleaning and Deodorizing: HOCl’s ability to eliminate odors makes it valuable for cleaning and deodorizing areas where animals are housed. It can help control the smell of urine, feces, and other odorous substances.
  • Dental Care: Veterinarians may use HOCl solutions for oral hygiene and dental care in animals. It can be used as a mouthwash or oral rinse to help prevent infections and promote oral health.
  • Ear and Eye Care: HOCl can be used to clean and flush the ears and eyes of animals. It can help remove debris, reduce inflammation, and prevent infections.
  • Instrument Cleaning: Veterinary instruments, such as surgical tools and dental equipment, can be soaked or cleaned with HOCl solutions to ensure they are properly disinfected before use.
  • Emergency and First Aid: In emergency situations, such as trauma or accidents, veterinarians may use HOCl to quickly disinfect wounds or injuries before providing further treatment.
  • Skin and Coat Care: HOCl solutions can be used to cleanse the skin and coat of animals with skin conditions, infections, or irritations. It can help soothe and clean affected areas.
