Hibiscrub is a powerful antiseptic solution, often used in hospitals to discourage harmful bacteria. It is not, however, intended to aid healing and should NOT be applied to open or angry wounds. Hibiscrub contains chlorhexidine gluconate which is effective against a wide range of bacteria, yeasts, some fungi and viruses, so it is often used post-surgery to sterilise the body (avoiding the wound site). Before using Hibiscrub on your pet, always read the instructions carefully and get vet advice on its suitability. For general cleaning, only use Hibiscrub in diluted form as it can exacerbate skin problems and cause irritation. Best used for sterilising and not healing.
