Dog Antiseptics and Disinfectants

Santa Cruz Animal Health offers a comprehensive line of antiseptics and disinfectants for dog use. Topical antiseptics include hydrogen peroxide and isopropyl alcohol, which are both used for cleaning minor cuts and abrasions. Chlorhexidine is an antimicrobial disinfectant that rapidly defends against a wide range of microorganisms, including both gram negative and gram positive bacteria. Disinfectants such as povidone iodine, betadine and potassium peroxymonosulfate are effective in destroying a wide range of pathogens harmful to dogs such as viruses, bacteria and fungi, and are useful both prior to and following surgical procedures.
