Odzon Liquid 500ml
Odzon Embrocation for Horses & Greyhounds
"The best embrocation treatment for horses and greyhounds."
ODZON is suitable for application on:
- Thoroughbred horses
- Harness racing horses
- Equestrian horses
ODZON is a safe, general purpose treatment for:
- Shin soreness
- Tendon injuries
- Joints & muscle soreness
- Swelling with or without heat
- Greyhounds: all of the above and also, wrists & toe injuries as well as race falls
ODZON can go on over broken skin (e.g. speedy cuts, gravel rash) on any part of the body except the eye.
It may even aid the healing process, as one of the active ingredients is Benzalkonium Chloride, a quaternary ammonium disinfectant useful for cleaning skin, mucus membranes and wounds.
Care should be taken if massaging as scurfing will occur after a few massages. Blistering will occur if bandaging is applied even after a few days, and an occlusive dressing will produce a strong blister almost overnight.
ODZON is best applied by hand or with a cotton wool pad. ODZON will not normally have any adverse effect on human skin, however it should be washed off after use as it may tend to dry the skin.
Preferably apply 4 or 5 applications of ODZON, allowing a few minutes for each application to soak into the skin.
With the first application a little foam will develop, then larger amounts of foam with each application. Simply produce the foam then allow it to sink into the skin between each application and before exercising. The exercise can help the penetration of the product.
In most cases an increase in swelling will be observed in the early stages of treatment as ODZON will cause more fluid and blood flow to the area to aid the healing. This swelling will normally be seen to reduce as healing progresses after a few days.
Water can play an important part in the treatment with ODZON. It is our belief that ODZON has an effect on the semi permeable cell membrane (wall) surrounding each individual cell, and that at a critical dilution level ODZON allows complete transmission across this cell barrier allowing nature to remove any unwanted material from within the cell ( tissue ) thus allowing excretion through the blood stream.
Hence swimming the animal or working on a beach in the water, in conjunction with ODZON is the best possible exercise. Experience has shown that by applying 4 or 5 applications of ODZON and then swimming on a regular basis; a fit horse that is shin sore or developing shin soreness, can be kept in work, with the shin soreness reversed. The horse can then go on and win races before having to be spelled. Horses in this category have then gone on to win further races later in their careers indicating that no permanent injury has been incurred.
Animals being treated with hydro or ice baths should have 4 or 5 applications applied, as above, BEFORE their treatment is commenced.
Considerable benefit has been reported with the use of ultrasonic under water for injuries where such methods are suitable, for example greyhounds with shin soreness, tendon injuries, joint or muscle soreness, pastern, wrist or toe injuries. Greyhounds falling during work or racing have been found to benefit form several applications of ODZON followed by a bath, twice a day.
Greyhounds with injuries should have 4 or 5 applications of ODZON before exercise, including walking; or being allowed to run loose in an exercise yard. Similarly ODZON should be applied before a dog is boxed to trial - if this is within regulations. Most greyhound injuries will respond with ODZON used in this way.
If it is not possible to swim or work the animal in water, apply 4 or 5 applications of ODZON as above, exercise at own discretion, then hose off well. A fresh application may then be applied and left on whilst the animal is resting.
Animals coming back into work after injury are best treated with ODZON routinely before the start of work each day to ensure the best possible results.
