Frequently Asked Questions



1. Why should I use Corry Mountain Wound Repair?

Corry Mountain Wound Repair is the only germicidal product that is non-caustic to you or your animal. Its ingredients have been chosen and measured and blended to exacting standards so as to do no harm to new tissue as it develops. There are no caustic or toxic ingredients that would be detrimental to new cells as they grow, nor do the ingredients cause irritation during the healing process.

Corry Mountain Wound Repair is composed of medicinal, therapeutic-quality vegetable and essential oils rich in triple unsaturated fatty acids that strengthen the cell membranes, promote cell growth, accelerate new tissue regeneration and heal wounds with minimal or no scarring.

Corry Mountain Wound Repair is an excellent broad spectrum sanitizing agent. It will promptly and efficiently prevent further infection, fight infection that is pre-existing, disinfect and cleanse the wound while stimulating new tissue growth at the cellular level. Unlike most disinfectants that are currently used, ours is 'tissue friendly' and does not slow the healing process by killing new tissue as it develops.

2. How much Wound Repair comes in one squirt bottle?

100 mls    =    4 ounces    =    1/2 cup

3. Is this enough to treat a fairly large wound?

One Tablespoon is 1/2-ounce, or 15mls --- That is WAY WAY too much!  Keep in mind that "Less is far more powerful" when it comes to essential oils. One-quarter of a teaspoon (1/4 tsp) is 1.25mls. We suggest you keep a 1/4 tsp plastic measure with the Wound Repair (not metal because the ingredients will react to the metal). 1/4-teaspoon is more than adequate for one application on a large wound---approximately the size of the back of your hand---spread directly over and in the wound in a thin film. If applied in this manner, one 100ml bottle should cover such an area for over 80 applications.

4. Is it necessary to bandage the wound?

The term 'wound' is one of those words with many definitions, just like the word 'pill'. If there is any question about the wound needing a bandage, kindly contact your veterinarian, kennel manager, farm manager, trainer, or feel free to call or email us.

In our experience, we have found that our dogs do not lick this Wound Repair off and generally leave it alone. They seem to receive and welcome the treatment with an openness that we have not encountered when using pharmaceuticals. Personally, we do not use a bandage if we can avoid it. It attracts chewing while the Wound Repair does not. The Wound Repair Ointment itself provides a barrier to germs, a covering over the wound, and immediately starts fighting infection while it cleanses the wound.

5. How often should I treat the wound?

If the wound is not bandaged, it can be treated twice a day with Wound Repair ointment, once in the morning and once in the evening. When the wound bed is almost level with the skin, you should continue to apply ointment to the edge of the wound like you were applying lipstick. You want the skin to grow back across the wounded area to finish closing the wound. Stimulation of the edge of the wound will bring this about.

If applying a compress containing the Wound Repair, apply a fresh one twice daily, or every four hours if the wound is infected. Areas immediately around the wound can be gently swabbed with the ointment itself.

If the wound is bandaged, treating every other day is recommended. This will not slow the healing process noticeably but it will allow the wound bed to 'fill in', to approach skin level, at which time bandaging is no longer necessary.

6. How long will it take the wound to close over completely?

There are several factors that determine the length of time it will take for the wound to close. In order to answer this question, there are several things that must be taken into consideration. One is the size of the wound and another is where is the wound located? Has the wound been treated with other wound care products prior to being treated with Corry Mountain Wound Repair Ointment? How often will the wound be treated?

Our experience with many different types of wounds in various locations and with varying size is that it will take between one to two weeks to see a dramatic improvement in the wound if you apply the Wound Repair generously and faithfully two times each day. Complete closure could also take place within this time frame, dependent upon the size and location of the wound. We would not be surprised if you saw complete closure of a large wound within less than 30 to 60 days, if you faithfully applied this Wound Repair two times every day. This is in comparison to alternative treatments that typically have taken 120 and 180 days, if not 270 to 420 days to have closure.

7. How will the wound closure look when it has healed?

Our experience is that there should be minimal if no scarring, with no change in hair color. This is based on use of Corry Mountain Wound Repair Ointment only. Other wound care products may have caustic or toxic ingredients (such as battery acid [H 2 SO 4 ] or copper sulfate) that will affect the tissue properties and cause a withered or drawn look to the wound closure.

8. Is it safe to use the Corry Mountain Wound Repair Ointment around the eyes or in the mouth?

Corry Mountain Wound Repair does not contain any caustic or toxic ingredients that might cause irritation of the tissue around the eye or around and in the mouth. All of the ingredients are gentle, nontoxic and specifically for damaged and/or sensitive tissue. However, it is essential that you store Corry Mountain Wound Repair in a dark place to prevent light interfering with and altering the chemical structure of the Tea Tree component. Light-exposed Tea Tree oil has a greatly increased para-cymene content. Para-cymene has been identified as a potent skin irritant which causes painful episodes of erythema and oedema of the skin. Oxidised Tea Tree oil with high para-cymene content causes slow healing and extensive chemical burns when applied to the skin.

If you are in any doubt or have concerns, call us and we can prepare a fresh batch for you, and even reduce the concentration of those ingredients that may be of a concern.

It is not recommended to be used directly in the eye.

9. What age wound will your Wound Repair be effective on?

The 'fresher' the wound when treatment is begun, the shorter and better the outcome. We have had wounds treated with other products, that never completely 'closed' and had good outcomes when the wound was later treated with Corry Mountain Wound Repair.

10. Will it revitalize old wound scars?

We have had good success in regenerating hair growth on old scar tissue. However, if this is what you specifically want to do, then call us for another mixture... something more appropriate and tailored to this purpose.

11. Does this Wound Repair prevent 'proud flesh'?

The best defense against 'proud flesh' is proper wound management with a non-caustic wound care system such as Corry Mountain Wound Repair.

[ Back to Top ]

12. If 'proud flesh' does occur, can the problem be corrected?

Small amounts of 'proud flesh' can be allowed to dry and form a scab, which can then be peeled off repeatedly until the wound bed is slightly below the hairline. Treatment with Corry Mountain Repair Ointment should continue during this time around and on the perimeter of the wound to stimulate epithelial tissue and hair growth. Your veterinarian should evaluate excessive amounts of 'proud flesh'.

13. How do I determine if I should treat the wound or talk to my vet?

If you have any question, ask your veterinarian, kennel manager, farm manager, trainer, or feel free to call or email us. There are many things to consider, such as the amount of tissue loss, exposed bone, tendon involvement, etc. If suturing is being considered, particularly with muscle mass, please call us as we have alternative products that are available upon request. We can also consult, for you, with our professional colleagues who work full-time in administering therapeutic-quality essential and carrier oils to animals, adults and children in clinical settings.

14. What other steps can be taken to help heal the wound?

Initially, you can flush the wound area with water to remove debris and dead tissue. After the initial flushing of the wound, use the Wound Repair Ointment to keep the wound clean. Tap water is non buffered and can rupture the new cells, which will only slow the healing process, and, if used continually, may contribute to the development of proud flesh.

15. Can I use Corry Mountain Wound Repair for 'Rain Rot' or 'Thrush'?

Yes. Both 'Rain Rot' and 'Thrush' will respond to the germicidal properties found in Corry Mountain Wound Repair. Tea Tree, Lavender and Myrrh are all individually and powerfully anti-fungal. A blend of all these three together is extremely powerful against these conditions. Treatment with essential oils must be continued for a considerable time, even though symptoms may disappear quite quickly. Three months, and possibly six months may be needed to bring the fungal invasion under control, and discontinuing treatment too soon will lead to a reappearance of symptoms quite soon. As with any prolonged aromatherapy treatment, it is wise to vary the choice of oils from time to time. If you call us, we can do this for you.
