Rated 5 out of 5 by Gotta Love it! I've made good use of this powder many times on the farm and with a variety of animals. From a hen that survived a fox attack which left her thigh eaten and ripped to the backbone... to my barn kitties that seem to get recurring nasty abcesses... to my 5 horses with cuts and scrapes on their legs. It just plain works! P.S. The hen fully recovered and you can't tell anything happened to her! January 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life Saver My halter horse ripped a large hole in her neck, close to the carotid artery, she was bleeding fast. I ran and grabbed Wonder Dust unscrewed the cap and pored it in, within 15 seconds the blood flow was much slower. We kept at it until the vet could arrive and stitch her up he said the coagulant in this saved her life. This along with Derma-Gel allowed the hole to heal with no visible marks, allowing us to take AQHA Open Aged Mares Canadian National Champion title!! August 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it mix with nu stock i mixed it with nu stock and it worked wonders on my paint show horse and she had no scaring she had a wound about the size to 2 softballs stacked on top of each other and i used that and it did better that underwoods believe it or no August 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING! i wouldn't ever question getting this product! a pony at my stable has a major vain problem with his hind leg, it scabs over, but it usually ends up being brushed off, rubbed off, or broken when he's running. it ends up gushing blood for 30mins to an hour. after the bleeding stops we put a bit of powder on it and it covers itself in just a few days. i cant believe how little it costs! such a great price for an amazing value!!! must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for lower leg cuts Have used this product for years. It works great for leg cuts that are prone to proud flesh. Reading some of the other reviews. This product mixed with Mckillips powder and Furazone will keep the pain mentioned to the minimum. I have used for major gashes, snake bites, tears, and Wonder Dust lives up to its name. No visible proud flesh after wound heals. October 6, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by like magic... my horse got cast in the stall and busted up 3 legs with his shoes. it happened on a sunday, of course, so couldnt get the vet out right away. i rinsed all 11 wounds with plain water (which were quite deep) and applied Wonder Dust. the difference within 24 hours was remarkable. with no discomfort whatsoever to my horse. i wasnt surprised, as ive used this product in the past. i have never, ever been disappointed with the results...and will never, ever be without it! just a note: never has there been left any scarring or white hair after healing. its cleaner, easier, more thorough and less stressful to my horse than anything else ive ever used. I highly reccommend it to anyone with a horse. March 11, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by must have in your livestock first aid kit my mare had a long,deep cut on her muzzle.This product was the only thing I could get close enough to fill the wound with several times a day for 2 weeks. It left no visible scar.I reccommend keeping 2 bottles in your first aid kit. March 4, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonder Dust lives up to its name! My yearling stud colt injured the front of his left hind leg. The wound was deep and about 6 inches long by 2 1/2 wide. He was not halter broke at the time. We tried several treatments with little success. I found Wonder Dust at my local feed store and tried it. My colt did not mind the application of Wonder Dust. In fact he began to enjoy the time we spent with him during treatment. He is healing nicely and much more quickly than I anticipated. Thanks Wonder Dust. August 28, 2009

can this product be use for dogs?
frank k on Jul 10, 2015
Best Answer: I've used Wonder Dust a lot for wounds, thrush, etc., on my horses, but never used it on my dog. Years ago (before Frontline) I used to "dust" my dogs with diatomaceous earth for fleas. I know that's OK. Good luck!
