I’ve read about this Chinese medicine for people but never thought how good it might be for use with horses. I had a letter this week that one owner had really excellent results on cuts, as a general antibiotic mixed with water and used in ears, etc. and even taken internally. Unlike regular antibiotics it doesn’t seem to build up resistance. And it’s VERY affordable since they use it all the time in China. It is available as a powder, ointment, spray or packaged bandages.  Vietnam veterans might remember seeing the vials during the war.
Has anyone used this herbal remedy before? Like to hear your comments & if it worked for you or not.

Think Orb will do it again in the Preakness?
Enjoy the Ride!

From Wikipedia;
Yunnan Baiyao (or Yunnan Paiyao) (simplified Chinese: 云南白药; traditional Chinese: 雲南白藥) is a hemostatic powdered medicine famous for being carried by the Vietcong to stop bleeding during the Vietnam War. [1] The medicine, developed by Qu Huangzhang in 1902, is designated as one of two Class-1 protected traditional medicines, which gives it 20 years protection. In China, its reputation is equal to that of penicillin in the U.S. It is founded and manufactured by a state-owned enterprise, Yunnan Baiyao Group in Yunnan, China. The formula is secret.
