Ketocheck™ – The Effective and Versatile Way to Detect Ketosis in Cattle

Ketosis, or the presence of ketones, is a metabolic state that leads to limited milk production, poor behavior and weight loss. Naturally, this could be harmful to anyone raising cattle for milk production, and treating it is easiest when it is caught early. Outside of a laboratory, ketosis can be difficult to detect.

However, Ketocheck™ makes diagnosing ketosis very easy and very quick. Ketocheck™ is a powder that tests for ketosis by changing a distinct purple color. By dropping milk, urine, or plasma from the affected cattle onto the powder, and waiting for the color change, one can easily detect the presence of ketones in the animal’s fluids. Results can appear in as little as two minutes after testing. Once the powder becomes purple in color, ketones have been detected. Only a small amount of powder is needed for this process, leading to one bottle of Ketocheck™ lasting for many different tests. A bottle of Ketocheck™ fits easily in ones pocket or medical bag and is ideal for use out in the field.

Kethocheck™ isn’t only cost-effective and is very accurate as it is 99% accurate for diagnosing subclinical cases of ketosis. This, along with its low price point and accessibility, provides no doubt that Ketocheck™ is a great tool for any cattle producer.

Available in 20gm and 50gm bottles

Protecting Your Pet’s Paws With Pad-Tough™

Protecting Your Pet’s Paws With Pad-Tough™

455 Sovereign Court, Ballwin, MO | 888.506.3039 | spatterson@creativesciencellc.com

Pad protection is one of the most important parts of being a dog owner. Extreme heat and cold can crack the pads, and rough terrain can cut into them and leave your pet injured or uncomfortable. Although dogs’ pads are naturally very resistant, they can cause your pet a great deal of pain when injured. Preventing their injury is as simple as not walking your dog on extremely hot pavement or through tough terrain, but to ensure the best protection in any condition, spraying their pads liberally with Pad-Tough™ is the most efficient option.

Along with using Pad-Tough™, dog owners should check their pets’ pads after rigorous activity to check for cracks, cuts, or splinters. Checking for any swelling or discoloration is always a good practice to keep, and looking out for foreign objects between their paws can prevent further damage. Both extreme hot and extreme col d temperatures can be dangerous for dogs, as the heat can damage the pads, and with cold weather comes ice, rocks in the snow, and other hazards during dog walks. If pavement is too hot for your hand to rest on, it is too hot for your dog’s paws. Along with the problems the heat brings, extreme cold usually results in a lot of ice-melting products to be on pavement. Most ice-melting products (ice salt, etc.) can be harmful to a dog’s pads, and thus should be considered when planning a walking route. Many deicers are fine for your pets, but many can lead to dried out, cracked, or even burning pads.

Many people suggest dog booties to protect pads, but these can be uncomfortable for the pet and lead to a lower compliance within the animal. An injured paw can be extremely painful for your pet, and Pad-Tough™ is the best way to guarantee paw protection. When used routinely prior to extensive outdoor activity, Pad-Tough™ can ensure a protected pad and a happy animal.

Available in 4 oz bottles.

One of the most enjoyable ways to care for your dog is taking it for walk or playing fetch. Seeing your pet bound around with wild abandon demonstrates their enthusiastic, care-free nature. A frustrating moment for pet parents, however, is when their beloved pet returns to them with cracked or bleeding paws.

By applying a protective barrier to the pet’s paws with Pad-ToughTM before they face the elements, pet owners will assist in keeping their dog’s paws protected.

Pad-ToughTM is also very useful for working and sporting dogs. It’s recommended that Pad-ToughTM is applied with an easy to use trigger spray before any activity that may potentially stress or damage paws. With a formula meant to provide a protect barrier and comfort, Pad-ToughTM is a great choice for shielding your pet from the elements.

The cost-effectiveness and ease of application make this product a must-have for any dog parent with an active dog.

Proud Flesh: Effects, Causes, and Solutions

Proud Flesh: Effects, Causes, and Solutions

455 Sovereign Court, Ballwin, MO | 888.506.3039 | spatterson@creativesciencellc.com

Proud flesh is a term used to describe excess growth of granulation tissue around a flesh wound. In normal amounts, granulation tissue helps the healing process of a wound, protecting it from infection and helping reduce its size. However, developing too much granulation tissue will prevent the wound from fully healing, leaving it exposed to infection. When left to grow, proud flesh can become tumor-like in appearance.

Proud flesh is more likely to develop on horses than any other animal, and on these horses, it tends to develop most on the lower part of limbs. The American Association of Equine Practitioners has stated several factors for the development of excessive proud flesh: excessive movement of the healing tissue, a reduced blood supply, infection of the wound, and minimal soft tissue coverage around the wound.

Proud flesh is unsightly and dangerous. It can cause disqualification from shows and other activities, while causing the animal a great deal of discomfort. If the proud flesh on a wound becomes too exuberant, surgery may be required to remove it. However, topical ointments such as Proudsoff™ can be used to treat proud flesh before it spreads too far.

By applying a thin layer of Proudsoff™ to the infected area once daily, one can ensure the elimination of excess granulation tissue. Before each application, one should clean the dead tissue and other debris from the lesion. This can be done with soft cotton or gauze. Once the proud flesh is gone, discontinue using the ointment and bandage the wound. Proudsoff™ is not for use on wounds that do not contain proud flesh.

Available in 3 Oz Jars

Proudsoff™ – The Treatment Solution to Proud Flesh

Granulation tissue, while necessary to the healing of a horse’s wound, can often grow and protrude from the wound, resulting in unsightly and hard-to-manage proud flesh. Proud flesh can grow exorbitantly and can even take on a tumor-like in appearance. This can lead to disqualifications in shows and other activities, while causing the animal a great deal of discomfort.

Proudsoff™ painlessly aids in the control and removal of proud flesh from horses, cattle, sheep, and goats. By coating proud flesh with a thin layer of Proudsoff™ daily, one can ensure the elimination of the problem. Before each application, one should clean the dead tissue and other debris from the lesion. Using this process, the proud flesh will eventually be removed entirely.

External Papillomas on Animals

External Papillomas on Animals

455 Sovereign Court, Ballwin, MO | 888.506.3039 | spatterson@creativesciencellc.com

Papillomas, or warts, on animals are essentially benign tumors on the skin, caused by viral infection.  Although some warts may regress or disappear over time, many can become inflamed or infected. Papilloma virus cause an increase in cell division within the skin, producing abnormal growth while preventing cells from dying from programmed cell death.

Papilloma viruses can be carried by animals without displaying symptoms, but pets with weaker or immature immune systems are likely to develop external warts. These viruses can survive in tough conditions and are able to go for long periods of time in environments outside of the animal. Typically transmitted through contact, Papilloma viruses can also be transmitted through food bowls, toys, and beds. Viruses often gain access to the body through cuts, abrasions, or with the assistance of biting insects.

Dogs can also contract papilloma viruses. Although single papillomas can sprout up on their own, one can find hundreds or thousands on a pet. As with other animals, dogs are more likely to contract a papilloma virus in a younger, more immature stage of their lives. Dogs with weak or damaged immune systems are also susceptible to these viruses.

Though warts can resolve without treatment through natural immunization, persistent warts are common and require treatment. Many people seek treatment with ligatures or surgery, but this can be messy, costly, and dangerous without proper medical care. Untreated papilloma viruses can be associated with certain cancers in pets, and thus, treatment is advised upon discovering the warts. Topical remedies, such as Wartsoff™, are commonly used to treat papillomas.

It is important to remember that while papilloma viruses can be transmitted by contact, a member of another species cannot contract the virus from that species. Therefore, humans cannot contract the virus from dogs, and dogs cannot contract the virus from cattle. However, as they can still be transmitted by members of the same species, treatment is still advised. Wartsoff™ is a topical ointment that aids in the removal of external warts without bleeding, stinging, or discomfort. It removes warts in cattle, horses, dogs, and goats while maintaining a low price point and a great effectiveness. Contact Creative Science LLC to learn more about Wartsoff™ today.

Wartsoff™ – A Safe and Effective Way to Remove Warts

455 Sovereign Court, Ballwin, MO | 888.506.3039 | spatterson@creativesciencellc.com

Warts are unsightly, cumbersome, and in the case of Bovine Papillomatosis, viral. Warts on cattle especially can bleed if disturbed, potentially leading to other infections and diseases. Animals with warts will often be excluded or disqualified from shows and competitions.

Many people try to treat warts by removing them surgically or forcefully, sometimes tying ligature around the base of the wart. While these options may have some success, they are often painful, messy, and dangerous.

Fortunately, Wartsoff™ aids in the removal of external warts from cattle, horses, dogs, and goats. An ointment based product, Wartsoff™, is easy to apply and can treat warts with minimal mess and struggle. By applying directly to the wart twice daily, one should see results in as little as two weeks. The ointment should also minimize the wart without any bleeding.  Wartsoff™ is painless and cost-effective.

Whether you’re raising show cattle or trying to take the best care of your beloved pet, Wartsoff™ is the best option to remove warts safely and effectively.
