Hibiscrub - worth buying?
« on: January 20, 2023, 09:46:23 am »
Hi all - new poster alert!   :wave:
This is my fourth time lambing my small flock (Charolais ewes in lamb to Welsh mountain ram). 

I'm prepping my lambing kit ahead of time and have read about Hibiscrub.  I haven't needed to intervene and had no prolapses to deal with so far, but want to be prepared.  Is Hibiscrub (£20 for 500ml) worth buying over, say a Triscrub (£10 per 500ml) or a basic antibacterial hand wash you can get from Tesco (£5 per 500ml)?

Thanks very much in advance.

I think people just say Hibiscrub in the same way as one might say Hoover to refer to all vacuum cleaners.

General veterinary surgical scrub is fine (e.g. this one, at £7.50/500ml).

Triscrub would be fine. Hibi seems to have rocketed in price. I definitely wouldn’t use hand soap though esp on prolapses.
