      You had me worried, but my dates were all good (06/2015).

        How many bladder flushes do you get with a 16 oz bottle? Thanks

          Your mileage may vary. It all depends on how much Vetericyn you decide to use. At 60cc per instillation or flush, you will get almost 8 applications from a 16oz bottle of Vetericyn. I figure about 473cc per 16oz bottle, divided by the number of cc you use per instillation.

          All the best,

            60cc? I don't think my bladder could hold that much.

              I was just using 60cc as an example because that is an amount that I read many people use. In my case, I use 20cc Vetericyn VF and 10cc saline, so I get almost 3 times more instillations from a bottle of Vetericyn than someone who uses 60cc.

                  I use 20 ml 3 times a week. That would be 2 oz. per week which is 8 weeks per bottle. You may find you need more or less but this is a simple way to estimate. I always buy four bottles so I get free shipping. If I only used Vetericyn VF for the bladder, one order would last me about 32 weeks. I also use it for skin blistering (heal not prevent), cuts, pressure ulcers, shearing and anything else that damages or irritates the skin.

                  Good luck.

                    After reading my post and Millard's post, it should be quite apparent that usage of Vetericyn or Vetericyn VF varies greatly from individual to individual. You have got to find what works for YOU! That is key. Some of us use Vetericyn instillations with intermittent catheterization, some with indwelling urethral foley catheters and some with suprapubic catheters. And within the parameters of the kinds of bladder management we use there are variations. What works for anyone of us may not work for anyone else. For now, we are all on our own to find what works for ourselves.

                    All the best,

                      We go through a bottle every 3 weeks or so. Not for bladder instillations, but for preventatively spraying around the catheter and mostly for respiratory uses (nebulizations). It's also great for eye care, sunburns, and cleaning up accident-prone small kids and klutzy adults. My mom keeps a bottle as a face wash.

                        I have a sp. I will give it a try. Maybe 20-30cc three times a week to start off with.

                          Scaper1. What kind of illnesses do you treat with a nebulizer? The reason I ask, I have nieces and nephews that deal with different respiratory illnesses quite often.

                          Thank you.

                            Brent,

                            I'm vent/ phrenic pacer dependent, so a magnet for respiratory bugs. I used to have colonized pseudomonas, and on top of that I'd get various active infections, usually staph or pneumonia. When that started happening back to back, right after finishing antibiotic treatments, I got a little desperate and took the advice of another member here who was nebulizing Vetericyn to deal with chronic infections in her badly compromised lungs. It's been about 3 years now, without any infections, and the pseudomonas is gone too, along with what I thought was permanent nasal congestion.

                            That said, I should emphasize that this is way, way off label usage of VVF. I started my little experiment slowly, with a "safety" phase, and only increased the amounts and frequency once I was sure there were no ill effects. So far so good.

                              I.m glad to hear that it has helped you. I thought that I had read that a study had been done for respiratory infections but never saw the outcome and I wasn't sure if I should suggest trying VVF.

                              Thank you for your response.
