Default Spray for disbudding

Alrighty.
What is everyone using on kid heads after disbudding?
No Furall anymore, so now what. I've been using the Alushield and it has worked fine for me, but didn't know what others use. If anything.

Nothing. Ever. Another course of action designed for the human and not the goat.
So you can feel like you did something to make up for 'hurting' them.
Bah....A burn is aseptic....until you go messin with it !

My dairy inspector told me to put my Furall in the horse barn and leave it there! So, now I use Blu-Kote and have since 2008 with no infection problems. I use it mostly to make ME feel good, as Lee says it is a burn such as that is aseptic.

I use Scarlex (Scarlet Oil) comes in a bottle that looks the same as Blu-Kote, only the spray is red.

The biggest reason we use an aerosol is to help cool the head.
That and the vet's office has used an aerosol for my entire memory of disbudding (calves, then goats).

It's the Furall that is the problem with food animals not the aerosol itself. It is cancer causing and the FDA has banned such use for food animals.

My dairy vet said same thing about Furall. I still have a partial can, but it has big tape note on it "NO DAIRY" so it would only be used on a pet wether for example.

The breeder who does most of the disbuddings for me, uses mostly Alushield, sometimes nothing. If its the cooling of the aerosol that's the primary benefit, then I'd look into using an aerosol Aloe if I thought they really needed something. Most of them just seem so totally ok so fast.
