Invented by Mr Watchman in 1907, his proven formula has been helping pets for over a century. This was just before modern methods were widely used by vets and many formulations like THORNIT EAR POWDER were forgotten about.
THORNIT EAR POWDER is a powder that is based on Iodoform. At the beginning of the 20th century, iodoform was commonly used in human medicine as a dressing for wounds and sores. The Iodoform has a very distinctive medical smell that helps to discourage the mites. You may recognise the smell from sticking plasters. THORNIT EAR POWDER also contains the active ingredient Boric which is an effective antiseptic.
Boric was first registered in the US as an insecticide in 1948. Zinc oxide is added as a drying and curing agent that helps irritation to stop the itch cycle.
These chemicals come in crystallised form and are ground down as fine as is possible, though may still be slightly gritty in consistency. They are all added to carrier powder to make it easier for application.
