Indications for use

Silver Sulfadiazine Cream is a topical antimicrobial drug indicated as an adjunct for the prevention and treatment of wound sepsis in patients with second and third-degree burns.

Administration and dosage

Before treating your pet with Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 1%, wash your hands and then clean the affected area of your pet's skin as directed by your veterinarian. Once your pet's wound is clean, wash your hands thoroughly again and put on sterile disposable gloves. This is to avoid introducing additional bacteria and other infective agents into the burned area of your pet's skin.

Apply the cream once or twice a day, as directed. After application, you may leave the wound uncovered, or cover it with a sterile gauze bandage. It is important that your pet's burn be covered with the cream at all times, so if the cream rubs off on a bandage, your pet's bedding or other cloth, you may need to reapply the cream. Always reapply cream if your pet bathes or gets wet.

Tip: Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 1% is for topical use only. Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Wear sterile gloves while applying, and apply only to cleaned areas.

Following your veterinarian's directions, apply enough cream to cover the burn wounds in a layer about 1/16th of an inch thick. For reference, a penny is approximately 1/16th of an inch thick. Continue to apply cream to your pet for as long as you've been directed to by your veterinarian even if your pet's burn appears to have greatly improved. However, do not continue application longer than directed.
