After spending a lot of time and money at vets for new guinea pigs who developed skin sores i searched the internet and found that this is a good treatment for fungal infections in pets. Used on pigs skin ( after vet treatment) to help clear and ensure condition did not return). Similar consistency to vasaline but smells herbal. Seemed to help skin condition and pigs didn't mind having it put on ( their backs). Lots of recommendations on the net.
