We use this ointment a lot during Pheasant hunting season. Clinton and the girls love going out in the field to find pheasants, but the girls can come home with a few minor cuts and scrapes. Just take a little bit of the ointment and place on top of the small scrape. Both of the girls love the ointment and want to lick it immediately - we found playing with their favorite toy while their skin soaks up the ointment works best. This also works really well on their paws too - keeps them nice and healthy.
