F10 Treatment Applications in Exotic Animals

Webinar 3: F10 Treatment Applications in Small Mammal Patients

Tuesday 3 August | 19h30-20h30

The F10 product range of veterinary disinfectant and treatment products (Health and Hygiene Pty Ltd. www.healthandhygiene.co.za) are unique in various respects. They are all based on the main active ingredients of alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride and poly (hexamethylene biguanide) hydrochloride, with various additional minor constituents to optimise their efficacy for use in their different applications. The company believes in an open and ‘evidence based’ approach, with efficacy (primarily against viruses, bacteria and fungi), and safety (corneal, dermal, ingestion, inspiration and environmental), being tested against all ‘end products’, by external quality controlled government approved laboratories. The test certificates in respect of such tests are made publicly available on their website. The products are approved for use in many regions globally including (USA, many areas of Europe, UK, Australia, China and many other areas of Asia and many areas in the Middle East). The safety and efficacy of the core products results in veterinary treatment products also being licensed for use in the same regions. In this webinar the panellists will discuss the main and divergent applications for F10 products in the small mammal (exotic) veterinary field. F10 is non-corrosive and in view of its safety profile is ideal to use by fogging, for the control of air borne contagious (typically respiratory) infections, e.g. mycoplasma, as well as respiratory viruses, fungi and bacteria. F10 products can be administered by nebulisation and are licensed for the treatment of bacterial, fungal and viral infections (rhinitis, tracheitis, and pneumonia), on occasions used alone, in other situations used in combination with traditional systemic therapy, subsequent to culture and sensitivity testing. F10’s safety and efficacy by fogging is second to none.

Dermal applications, F10 can be used for fungal (dermatophytosis), or bacterial dermatitis, superficial injuries or when combined with insecticide to combat the risk of myiasis.

In these days of antimicrobial resistance, whether that be in ear infections, cystitis, oral, dermal or other infections, F10 has proven valuable in supressing levels of infection, enabling systemic antimicrobial control of many of these infections, when they would otherwise be non-responsive.

Treatments apart, of course F10 products are also invaluable as the corner stone of infection control and biosecurity policies in pet shops, breeding centres and veterinary facilities.
