Horse owners know that it’s not if their horses get hurt, it’s when. For such large, strong animals, horses are notorious for injuring themselves, often resulting in cuts and abrasions that are uncomfortable and difficult to heal. Horses are also prone to fungus, scratches and rain rot.
Now, horse owners have a new wound care product for minor cuts, abrasions and other skin conditions. The first-ever combination of Manuka Honey and MicroSilverBG™ works to stop 99.9 percent of bacteria immediately to start healing faster. And because it is free of hypochlorous acid, the use of Silver Honey won’t disrupt the skin’s natural microbiome.
“The healing power of these two natural ingredients has been proven, and we’re excited to be the first to offer them together in one wound care product,” said Amy Cairy, Director of Marketing for W.F. Young. “We have seen great results in field trials and think horse owners will be pleased to finally have a product in their arsenal that helps expedite the healing process.”
Silver Honey Rapid Wound Repair can be used on horses, dogs (for hot spots) and all animals. It is available in an eight fluid ounce bottle or two ounce tube. Look for Silver Honey Rapid Wound Repair at tack and feed stores as well as through online channels.

About Manuka Honey
Gathered exclusively from the pollen of the manuka tree of New Zealand, Manuka Honey has exceptionally high antibacterial activity. It maintains a moist and healthy wound environment. It also encourages debridement or shedding of dead tissue from the wound, stimulates the body’s immune response, promotes new tissue growth and reduces inflammation. The balanced wound environment aids in the quality and speed of healing.
