Advice for Veterinary Surgeons
Avoca (Silver Nitrate) is suitable for small and large animals for problems such as bleeding toe nails, callouses warts and many others.
In veterinary practice it may be that a large area of many square inches has to be treated:
- Remove the tip from an Avoca Silver Nitrate Caustic Pencil and crush it to a powder in a pestle and mortar
- Add several drops of water
- Mix water and powder until the powder has dissolved with a small paint brush, like a child’s water colour or poster paint brush, and apply using the same brush
- Leave to dry
- When treatment is complete, add a teaspoon of salt to the unused water mixture, stir with the brush, rinse with tap water and flush down sink
