Pet Skin Infections - Convenia Injection with Sterile Water

The skin is the body’s first line of defense of the immune system and largest organ of the body. The skin, like all organs, can become infected due to strains of bacteria. Openings of the skin, such as wounds or pores, can become a breeding ground for bacteria. As the bacteria reproduces, the layers of the skin begin to die resulting in necrotic tissues and damage to underlying nerves. When treated promptly with Convenia, these bacteria breeding grounds are terminated, returning your pet’s skin to its natural healthy state
