Reviews about "Aversektinovaya ointment for parrots, cats, dogs":
Having found something on the wax of my wavy that looks like a tick's defeat, I immediately rushed to seek help from Google. Great Guru prompted to try aversectin ointment.
The process of putting money on the alarming site was difficult: I and the bird suffered. I want to note that after the procedure the bird felt good, neither allergies nor other undesirable reactions to the transparent, odorless aversectin were present.

By the way, it turned out that those scaly and layered growths were not a tick, but a manifestation of avitinosis. In order to overcome the disease, we adjusted the nutrition, but this drug helped to eliminate, so to speak, aesthetic problems. Subsequently, the ointment was periodically used to maintain the effect.

The active ingredient of the drug has a detrimental effect on ticks. This applies to both mature individuals and the parasites in the larval stage. The drug leads to the death of not only ticks, but also fleas, which often live on the skin of cats and dogs, feeding on their capillary blood and tightly attaching to the coat.
Fleas are easily removed with Aversectin ointment.
Ointment contributes to the change in the conduct of nerve impulses in the body of the parasite, which ultimately provokes paralysis.

How to use the drug for the treatment of cats
In no case should not allow contact with the person's skin. Such a drug can provoke an allergic reaction and other side effects. To prevent this, it is advisable to wear rubber gloves.
The sequence of steps with a mite defeated by the withers:

- Gently shear out the hair on the affected area with scissors.
- Wear gloves and apply a thin layer of ointment with a cotton swab, going to the border of healthy skin. The tool should be gently rubbed.
- Leave the cervical collar to dry the ointment.
- Processing should be carried out 1 time in 5 days. Total need from 2 to 5 treatments.
With the defeat of the ears with ticks, the algorithm of actions is as follows:
- Take the animal in your arms. Well, if the cat is held by another person, it will be easier to handle the affected surface.
- Clean the ear from the scabs, pre-moistened cotton swab in Chlorhexidine.
- Apply ointment to the affected area. Additionally, you can put the tool in the bank (from the manufacturer) in warm water. After the ointment has melted, it can be dripped into the ear (2 drops are enough).
- Repeat the procedure after 5 days.
The neck collar for the cat will help prevent the product from licking.
The duration of treatment depends on the type of lesion, the exact dosage and frequency of use is determined by the doctor. When infecting with fleas, ointment should be applied over the entire surface with a thin layer. It is best to use a brush. Need to distribute the tool against wool. Then gently comb the parasites with a comb with frequent teeth. Enough two treatments with an interval of 24 hours.
Full recovery is considered only in the case when scraping from the skin gives a negative result. Without microscopic examination, one cannot be sure that all parasites have died.
You can not reduce the dose of ointment without first consulting with your doctor, otherwise the effectiveness of the treatment will decrease. After handling the animal, wash the gloves and hands with soap and water thoroughly. Do not allow children to cat, as well as stroke her within 24 hours after application.

The cat appeared sore at the withers. Everyone was very scared and upset. The cat belongs to my friend, whom I suggested contacting a pet to a doctor. She decided to wait a bit. As a result, the cat's body weakened, but the sore began to pass on its own. Already after some time decided to try this ointment. However, the doctor said that since the process went on recovery, it is best to give the cat a little stronger and use the tool in combination with vitamins. The result is satisfied. But I do not recommend without prior consultation with the doctor to treat the animal yourself!

Reviews on the effectiveness of ointment
The veterinarian wrote out aversex ointment to our cat when, after examining the cat's ears, he came to the conclusion that they were infected with a tick. Because of this ointment, the cat toiled sore for two months! We smeared his ears as it is written in the instructions, all by the rules. The cat, of course, resisted, but we, all bitten and scratched, continued the work ... In vain. Ears were not cleared of black dirt, and this is a sure sign that the mites are more alive than all the living.
I tried to treat my cat with drops at first, but this did not give the proper result, then the veterinarian prescribed AVERSEKTIN OIL. This is done elementary, but you need an assistant — it’s unrealistic to do it alone for the inexperienced! First, the ears should be cleaned with cotton swabs dipped in hydrogen peroxide of 3%, then a small amount of ointment is taken and put into the ears. The ointment is thick - so it can be laid down at first, and then the ears should be massaged until the ointment has completely melted. This procedure should be done 1 time per week, 3-4 times depending on the state. We did 4 times, until complete cure. Ointment helps much more effective drops, ears are still clean!
Today I want to talk about how aversectin ointment helped me in treating my Coco for ear mites. Coco - kitty, taken from the street with a number of characteristic problems, including sore ears. This was noticeable because the ears were dirty, in crusts, the cat shook its head, scratched its ears and did not allow to stroke its head. Such symptoms can also occur in otitis, for example. The treatment of the cat itself is not so simple, it requires the participation of two people - one keeps the cat, the other holds the treatment. It happens that the cat starts to wash its ears after processing, and there is a heavy drooling, our Coco has not salivated. Bottom line: I spent 4 treatments with an interval of 5 days. At 4, the ears were almost clean; this is an indication that the ear mite is defeated. I remove one star for the cure that takes a long time - from 15 to 25 days. Unfortunately, the cat continued to shake her head, it was clear that there were still problems. I knew that this could be a manifestation of otitis as a complication after a tick - this happens often. We went to the clinic again, the doctor looked at the smear from the ear under a microscope again - no tick was found.
Aversectic ointment is considered one of the most effective means to eliminate ticks, fleas and lashes. This tool should be used only after consulting a veterinarian, otherwise the cat can be harmed. If you follow all the rules and adhere to the instructions for use, the treatment will not take much time.
The composition of the drug
The drug was developed by the Russian company "Farmbiomed." The consistency of the ointment is thick, but homogeneous. The characteristic white color may have a slight yellow tint. It is packaged in small polymer jars, equipped with a twisting cap. There is a control of the first opening.
It is possible to store the medicine in the closed package for 2 years from the date of production, but after opening the jar, the medicine is suitable for use only for 24 days. The temperature should be above zero and not exceed 20˚C. Choose a storage place inaccessible to pets and children, as well as out of reach of direct UV rays.
The main component of the ointment is aversectin C, which has insecticide-acaricidal action. Its content in the drug is only 0.05%. In the manufacture of the medication used and auxiliary components:
- distilled glycerin,
- polyethylene oxide 1500,
- polyethylene oxide-400.
Aversektin C adversely affects the external parasites, regardless of the form and stage of their development. Its main feature is the ability to increase the amount of chlorine ion currents. Such an action violates the mechanism of transmission of nerve impulses, which causes paralysis and rapid death of the parasites.
When applied, the drug has a contact effect, that is, insects die after contact with its components. After penetration into the blood, the active substance is distributed throughout the body and has a systemic effect. Its maximum concentration in the blood occurs only at 3-4 days after use. The drug has a long effect, since the time of removal of aversectin C is 10-12 days.
The use of aversectin ointment for cats is considered safe. It is not addictive and does not have a harmful effect on the body, but has a number of contraindications, so consulting a doctor before use is required.

- With a wooden or plastic small spatula, apply ointment to the affected areas with a thin even layer, slightly rubbing it into the skin. Treat areas with a seizure of healthy skin 1 cm to prevent further spread of the disease.
- Be sure to use a collar or braid. It is possible to tie up a mouth of an animal with a bandage or a fabric strip. This is necessary so that the cat does not lick the drug, as this can lead to poisoning. Remove the collar only after the medicine is completely dry.
Depending on the degree of development of the disease, the procedure is repeated from 2 to 5 times with time intervals of 5-7 days. If the skin is severely affected, the procedure is performed twice. Processing in this case has its own characteristics. First, the ointment is applied on the one hand, and the next treatment - on the second, but only after a day. Do not treat large areas at a time, as this can lead to an overdose. Consultation with a doctor in this case is required.
Do not allow direct contact with the drug! Use rubber or latex gloves for processing.
If the disease caused by ectoparasites is accompanied by infection or fungi, antibiotics, antifungal drugs, immunomodulators, vitamin complexes are additionally prescribed. Treatment is stopped after receiving negative results of research scrapings from the affected areas. To speed up the recovery of the skin, additionally use a remedy with a healing effect.
When an animal is infected with fleas or lashes, the wool is not shorn. The treatment is carried out in the following sequence:
- Rub the medicinal mass into the skin using a soft brush. Move against the direction of growth of the coat. Focus on the areas of greatest insect accumulation.
- All hair gently comb comb.
- Prevent licking of the drug using a collar or tape.
- Be sure to replace the litter and treat the animal's areas of residence to prevent re-infection.

Ksenia, the mistress of the yard cat:
“We found Mila's cat on the street, took it home and immediately treated it with drops from parasites. Over the course of a few days, I noticed that Koko was still scratching his ears. In the veterinarian diagnosed - ear mite. Used 4 times aversectin ointment. They got rid of the tick, however, I also had to treat otitis. Plus - low price, minus - long treatment. ”
Violetta, the mistress of a Siamese cat:
“I noticed strange spots on the skin of a cat. Wool in these places fell out. The vet prescribed aversectin ointment. She was distrustful of the medicine, but she bought it. After the third treatment, the pet became better, and after two more wool began to grow. We found no side effects. ”
Olga, a veterinarian with 16 years of experience:
“I think the drug is useless. With a strong tick infestation, it is not effective (I prescribe injections in such cases), and in the initial stages it is better to use Stronghold drops. The cost will be more expensive, but the result will be much more efficient and faster. In addition, do not have to torment the pet unpleasant procedures. Most cats refuse treatment. ”
Victor, a veterinarian with 8 years of experience:
“The only advantage of aversectin ointment is considered low price. Otherwise, only disadvantages are an inconvenient form for use, low efficiency, the need for long-term treatment, etc. I never recommend using the drug to my clients, although my colleagues have supporters. To combat the ear mite, it is better to use drops, the blessing in pharmacies is now a huge choice. ”
