Chlorhexidine Handscrub 4%
An antimicrobial preparation for pre-operative surgical disinfection, antiseptic handwashing and pre-operative and post-operative skin antisepsis for animals undergoing surgery.
Contraindicated for patients who have previously shown a hypersensitivity reaction to chlorhexidine. However, such reactions are extremely rare.
Chlorhexidine gluconate is a unique agent that closely fits the definition of an ideal antimicrobial agent, having (among others) one of the most important characteristics of persistent activity. This persistence is due to chlorhexidine gluconate binding to the protein of the skin and, thus, being available for residual activity over a relatively long period of time.
