My husband, Dr. Richard Porter DVM, and I own a veterinary clinic. We have used Banixx™ on our surgery sites with tremendous results! We had one gelding who had cut his leg — it was a severe injury. We used Banixx™ on the injury. There was less irritation afterwards and it healed quickly with little or no swelling. Banixx™ was a part of his complete recovery.

Bill Long, six-time National Four-In-Hand Champion, affirms his observations:
"I have used Banixx™ and so have several of my friends in the sport. We are extremely pleased with the results in treating wounds and thrush. I highly recommend Banixx™ to anyone in the equine industry, in every discipline."
Helen at Freedom Village USA provided this success story:
"Once again, I want you to know how pleased we are with Banixx. One of the horses had scratches and we soaked a gauze pad with Banixx and then wrapped it over night. The next morning, we unwrapped it, and to our surprise the scabs were already falling off. Banixx is amazing! We love Banixx - Thank you for a wonderful amazing product."
We learned of Banixx™ Pet Care at a show in Pennsylvania. We told the Banixx™ rep of the problems that our Akita has with Hot Spots. She told us that Hot Spots may have an underlying cause but, despite that, Banixx™ may give some good relief. We got home and there was Kodi with a huge hot spot! Timing couldn't have been better. We applied Banixx™ immediately. We used to use a really well known product and Kodi was immediately uncomfortable and licked it off...making things worse! With Banixx™, there was no flinching or licking and it healed in 3-4 days. Before, ...it took over a week! I am a seasoned Dog Handler and we own a Pet shop so we now sell Banixx™ regularly; it is a product that we really believe in!
" 'Just try it and let me know what you think . . . Banixx', my colleague said. I had just called a member of the Society of Wound Management for advice on a particularly difficult case. I was completely unprepared for the results I saw using Banixx™.
This wound was at a complete standstill despite the use of many good products. After beginning Banixx™ the wound healed in less than a week.
This is the most amazing product I have used on wounds. My clients are as excited as I am. My practice is in a remote rural area and I see lots of bad wounds, many of them chronic. I wish I had had this product 30 years ago and I am grateful that I have it now. I am constantly looking for new ways to use it.

Rebecca Wolfe, owner of Dillon the Wheaton Terrier from Houston, TX, writes us:
"After many years of going throught prescription after prescription for my dog’s skin problems, I came upon Banixx™ and gave it a try. It only took a couple of weeks to end years of off again, on again skin problems. The hot spots, bacterial infection from licking and fungal spots have disappeared. I use Banixx™ as a preventative now. I can’t tell how much we spent on steroids and antibiotics over the years. It may not be the cure, but it is an amazing difference and such a pleasure to see my dog without discomfort. Thank you!"
Al Skywalker is currently the #10 all-time leading money winner in Steeplechase history. Jennifer Majette, trainer and owner of Al Skywalker, enthusiastically reports:
"Banixx™ is one of the most incredible products I have ever used for thrush and wounds. Al had chronic thrush his entire career and we tried everything on the shelf, but nothing really worked until we used Banixx™". Jennifer also used it on a throughbred race horse that had a severe laceration on his neck that was about eight inches long and about 3/4” deep. She followed the instructions on the Banixx bottle, spraying the wound twice daily. Within 24 hours it was starting to heal and within 7 days it was completely healed with no stitches applied.
In conclusion, Jennifer said: "I gladly recommend Banixx™ to anyone who owns a horse".
Another success story...An owner brought her dog to our veterinary clinic with a Brown Recluse spider bite. She had applied a bandage the evening before, after she noticed the bite. Overnight, the dog had not only chewed through the bandage and through the skin but was also chewing on the muscle. When we examined the dog, the affected area radiated a lot of heat and was severely inflamed. After spraying Banixx™ on the wound, immediately we felt a reduction in heat and the inflammation lessened. We also treated the bite with the appropriate meds, but 24 hours later, the wound showed very little inflammation, had shrunk in size by 50%, and the heat was gone. It was amazing!

Sunshine arrived at Sun Bassett Rescue in Florida with a severe case of Demodex all over her body and into her ears (Demodex is a common infestation of a dog’s skin caused by mites). She was treated with Ivermectin liquid to eliminate the mites. Banixx was applied as a soothing, healing agent for the outward skin infection and outbreaks all over her skin and inside her ears. Sunshine made a complete recovery and found a forever home.

Vicki Kelley, USDF Silver and Bronze Medalist with over 40 years experience as a rider and trainer, Antares Dressage in Pinehurst, NC, relates her story about Banixx™:
"I import a number of high quality dressage horses from Europe for sale. A common problem that I encounter is thrush. I’ve had some cases that were really stubborn and just would not go away with all of the other products that I’ve used. Banixx™ showed an incredible improvement in a very short period of time and now all of our horses have wonderful, healthy feet. This product will always be on my shelf!"
"Banixx™ has quickly become my best helper in the clinic, out of my truck, in the barn, and at the house for virtually every scratch, cut, wound, abrasion, abscess, puncture, and post-surgical clean-up. Having a product like Banixx™ that is tissue friendly and anti-microbial means faster healing time. A reduction of redness, pain and swelling is often observed after a single Banixx™ application. These extra benefits help keep the horse from disturbing the bandaged wounds and traumatizing the injured site.
In my opinion, everyone should switch out those old wound treatment remedies for Banixx™. It is a lot easier to stock one great product then a lot of wives' tales! The proof is in the application".

Dr. Black has been using Banixx™ in his equine practice for approximately 1.5 years. He says: "The most common types of cases we have used it for are hoof problems that have an infectious component, topical maintenance for wounds healing by second intention, and for flushing infected, draining puncture wounds. I feel Banixx's strong points are:

Hillary's Hope is an up-and-coming young Standardbred race horse who won the NY Sire Stakes LC Event and placed in other LC NYSS Stakes Events. She is owned by Whitney Goodblood and the Morrisville College Foundation. Whitney Goodblood, part-owner and trainer, describes her experience with Banixx™: "Banixx™ showed a dramatic improvement within seven days of Hillary's Hope's nostril injury. I have never seen a product that could help heal that quickly and cleanly. I recommend Banixx™ to all horse people. Thanks!"
"I was the lucky Horse Box contest winner to win the Banixx prize pack. I subscribed to A Horse Box (www.ahorsebox.com) and received your samples in one of my boxes. I have a cat who has had really bad skin problems for the last 4 years. He had ringworm and scabs and had lost almost all his hair on his back and neck. Nothing I tried ever worked or it was really toxic and I could not use it. When I saw your Wound Care was good to use on cats (which is not easy to find) I tried it on him. Well, let me just say that after 3 applications, his hair has grown back, no more ringworm, and I am soooo happy!. Last winter I felt so bad because he did not have much hair on his neck or back, and I am sure he was cold, but now his fur has grown in thick and nice!! His name was Mr. Ringworm because he always got it back, and, now it’s just Mr. R !!! Thanks for such a great product (it is actually amazing!) that you can use on all animals. He is a happy cat now!! Thanks again for such a great product !!"

A sampling of testimonials from SmartPak's Banixx Page:
"I was a little worried to give this a try at first but i had nothing to loose. My mare had a deep huge tear over her stifle, a good 3-4 inches long and high and it was all the way down to the muscle. So i was worried about what to put on it. I did not want to sting the area while spraying something on it but at the same time using a cream was difficult because than bedding and such would stick to the wound unless i wrapped it but as we all know wrapping a stifle does not work too well. so at a local feed store i saw this product and talked to one of the girls who works there about it. i thought what the heck so i gave it a try. I'm so glad i did!!! it was easy to spray on the wound even though it was at a weird angle. it also helped to keep the flies off the wound as well witch was a huge help. 2 months later the wound is smaller than a dime the hair has grown back 100% and in her chestnut color. you can't even see the wound unless you are running your hand along that area and really looking for it. Ive also used this for other little scratches and shush and with in a few days hair is back. i can't say enough for this stuff it looks just like water and does not sting but it works thats all i know and thats all that matters to me!" by rider27
"I was so happy to see SmartPak carrying this product and offering it at such a great price! My vet recommended that I use Banixx after my horse recently injured herself. I’ve been using it daily for the last month and I couldn’t be happier. This product has helped my horse heal from the inside out, it doesn't sting like iodine based products can, it's incredibly easy to apply, it doesn't have an odor and it's non-staining. I also love that it can be used on horses, cats, dogs and humans alike. Best of all, it’s made in the USA! This product has definitely earned a permanent home in my medicine cabinet. Thank you SmartPak!" by Southpaw13
"I love that this one formula works for my horse and my Jack Russell Terrier. I don't have to find the "canine" version like many other products; which is often just different packaging with the same formula. I had originally started using the product to treat a case of scratches my horse was dealing with(which helped quickly and dramatically). At the same time, my JRT developed a skin issue and had inflammed, damaged skin from the irritation. I brought the Banixx home from the barn and started treating my dog. Within a few hours the skin was noticeably less red and more of a normal pink. The hair started growing back in just a few days and she stopped biting at the area. She even stands still to be sprayed which she never does. This product has soothed and treated her skin beautifully!" by LegacysMom
"This stuff works wonders on an array of wounds, infections and practically anything else your horse may encounter and have show up anywhere on there body from hoof, to head. The great thing with Banixx is that you don't have to worry about it being stored to cold, if it accidently freezes it will still work. So you can keep it where ever is convient for you to always have near by. The amount of product for the price is also a great value and for most thing it's simply spray and leave. Speeds up healing and get your horse back to normal self before you know it without anything harsh or painful for them. No strong smells or toxic anything to worry about for your horses. Check out Banixx Website for some amazing pictures of healing and uses. I've tried another popular and excellent product out there, however the price and it's ability to become deactive by extremely high or low temps makes this option a better value for most." by sweet725
