Why Silver, and Why Honey?
Silver Honey Hot Spot and Wound Care is the first product of its kind to combine Manuka Honey and MicroSilverBG™, two of mother nature’s strongest antimicrobials, to provide fast-acting wound care and heal hot spots naturally. What makes those ingredients so special? And why do they work so well?
This is not your average grocery-store variety of honey. It is gathered exclusively from the hives of bees who have fed off the nectar of the Manuka Tree, which grows throughout New Zealand, often in extremely rugged and remote terrain. The bees pollinate the Manuka flower, which blooms just two to six weeks per year. After collection, Manuka Honey is distilled, refined and condensed into an ultrapotent, medical-grade form.
Manuka Honey has unique antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. When applied to skin wounds, it kills bacteria, maintains moisture and helps the skin shed dead tissue. It also stimulates growth of cells for tissue repair. During this whole process, it protects the skin’s natural microbiome, which is made up of beneficial microorganisms living on the skin.

Silver has been used for centuries for its natural health benefits. Ancient Egyptians covered open wounds with silver foil, and healers in the Middle Ages used it in their medicine. Fast forward to modern day, and MicroSilver BG is a powder of micro-sized pure medical-grade silver particles that fight germs, boost the skin’s natural defenses, and maintain the skin’s natural flora.
As an added benefit for skin care, unlike colloidal silver and chelated silver, the micro-sized particles are slightly larger and stay on the surface of the skin instead of being absorbed into the body. This provides long-lasting antimicrobial action that clings to the skin and hair follicles to protect the skin and prevent infections.
A powerful combination
These two powerful yet natural ingredients come together for the first time in Silver Honey Hot Spot and Wound Care. (add hyperlink to absorbinetpet product page when live). Clinical studies prove that this combination stops 99.9% of bacteria immediately to start healing faster. The formula moisturizes the treatment area and protects the skin during healing. It also soothes the skin, helping reduce the desire to bite and scratch so pets can heal quickly and comfortably. Available in a spray gel or ointment, Silver Honey is effective in healing hot spots, cuts, abrasions, sores, rashes, fungus, scratches, burns and wounds.
