Colloidal Silver, is it safe?....a tarnished reputation
Updated: Oct 29, 2019
Colloidal Silver is not a new solution. It has been around for centuries and has a positive reputation in many situations for the treatment of both animals and humans. Many people are enthusiastic about silver’s healing properties, sometimes giving the product merit above it’s capabilities. Inappropriate use and careless advertising has led to this simple remedy gaining a somewhat tarnished reputation. The ethics of Natural Animal are of honesty, integrity and trust. We believe that Colloidal Silver is a valuable solution when used as part of your animal skin care needs. Our products are developed so you can use this time tested remedy safely and with confidence.

The products are classified as antiseptic, disinfectant and sanitiser and are considered safe for the external treatment of animal skin.

In the fight to control bacterial, viral and fungal infections scientists have studied the properties of silver in a range of situations. Medical devices, bandages, clothing and appliance surfaces containing silver have been developed and are used world-wide. There is a vast amount of information available from reliable, peer reviewed and reputable studies. Anecdotal evidence in a range of real life situations is positive to the advantages of using Colloidal Silver for the care of minor injuries, prevention and treatment of minor dermatological conditions.
