No, FoamCare does not contain the same technology as Vetericyn Plus. However, Vetericyn Plus and FoamCare have been formulated to work together and use in conjunction after bathing for wound and skin management.
Can FoamCare be used in place of Vetericyn Plus?
FoamCare Medicated Shampoo is indicated for the relief of itchy or dry skin, dermatitis or hot spots. Vetericyn Plus Wound & Skin Care products help aid in proper wound cleansing and wound management. It is best to use FoamCare to bathe the pet first, and then apply Vetericyn Plus, to ensure proper wound healing.
Can FoamCare be frozen?
FoamCare is a liquid substance. Innovacyn recommends keeping this product indoors and away from freezing temperatures. If FoamCare freezes, allow product to thaw and shake vigorously before using.
What if the wrong density is used?
The different FoamCare shampoo offerings that are based on a pet's hair density help optimize cleansing and rinsing. Using the wrong density will not cause any harm or ill reaction to the pet. The shampoo will not lather as well or rinse off as quickly as it would with the correct density.
Can one dump the shampoo into a bucket and wash the pet that way?
FoamCare shampoo is best used as sprayed through its trigger system for correct foaming action. Innovacyn does not recommend decanting the shampoo into other containers. The shampoo is designed to be sprayed through the trigger for optimal coverage and easy application.
How can one determine the hair density of a pet?
One's gut feeling is typically the best choice, as pets vary greatly in their individual coat types. If it is more difficult to rinse FoamCare, try moving up a level in density type.
Why does the pH of shampoo matter?
Some shampoos have a lower pH which can disrupt the natural defenses of the animal's skin acid mantle. All FoamCare Shampoos are specifically formulated for an optimized pH for pet's skin and do not disrupt the natural acid mantle.
Which density should be used if the pet has an undercoat?
The density of an undercoat will change depending on the time of year. Generally, if a pet has a noticeable undercoat, the medium or high density is most likely the best choice.

What are the benefits to the foaming application?
