    Just a heads up, I called Oculus today (June 7th, 2016) and was told that the free shipping on orders of $75 or more was still in effect, but not the buy-3-get-1-free portion of the promotion. That said, MicrocynAH is $18.33 on Amazon, as of this date, and if you have Prime membership, shipping is free. Without membership, it may still be cheaper depending on shipping costs. Hope all is well for everyone.

      This whole tangent is getting personal so I will just bow out. Like I said earlier I don't ascribe any motivation to you actions other than the desire to help people
      I have been reading your posts with some amount of frustration. I, too, come from a scientific background and understand the importance of rigour and properly conducted studies. That said, here is the reality:
      -Those with SCI (as well as many with MS and ALS) often require frequent catheterization
      -The face frequent infections, even using porper cathing technique
      -There appear to be NO studies, of any kind, relating to reducing the incidence of infection from cathing or other neurogenic bladder issues
      -There is nowhere near enough research into the production of new antibiotics
      -Antibiotic resistant strains are increasing in number and frequency

      I have been reading this forum for some years now, I see you have too. Some that have posted here over the years have had to deal with multi-drug resistant strains, others are merely trying to avoid this. Absent any good evidence from proper studies, many of us turn to anecdote (a not uncommon occurence for people in dire straits). What may seem to you to be proselytizing on behalf of the company seems to me to be providing very possibly helpful information. Personally, I have been using this product for my loved one, for whom I am caregiver, and can only say the frequency of infection seems to have decreased. Could it be something else entirely? Pure chance? You bet. But as it seems to be helping, until I have good reason to think otherwise, we will continue to use it. As, I am sure, will others. With a proprietary method of production, I cannot truly be sure of the stability of the product, and there I have some concern. That said, Hyplochlorous acid does appear to be an effective antomicrobial (I invite you to search the NIH database). I appreciate ALL the posts, both in support and critical, as I think the sharing of information helps us all. And I do wonder, at times, if I'm buying snake oil. But, as our situation seems to have improved (at least with respect to the UTIs) I don't wonder too long and too hard.

        Have any of you volunteered for the study of treating the lower urinary tract for infections with the instillation of probiotics?

          Link to said study??? I know I'm signed up for every study and research project I can qualify for, but with no link can't tell if this is one, and can't sign up for it if I'm not aware of it....

            Other studies are being done one in the U.K., the other in the U.S., but was unable to find the links.

                  It's a lot cheaper to just get the Microcyn AH from a vet supplier. Same formula, half the price.

                    Kings is sold out of Microcyn AH Wound & Skin. Anybody know where a bargain is. Wonder does the Farm & Ranch replace it?

                        In these several threads on this topic on this form there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that using Microcyn and others of this class of products can clear up cloudy urine and help reduce bacteria that colonizes urine and help prevent urinary tract infections.

                        GJ wrote about his experience here many times. As his caregiver, I can tell you that when he started to use Vetericyn and then Microcyn his urine went from cloudy to clear and he experienced few urinary tract infections than before he began to use it. He wasn't the only member of this forum who experienced these results. You will also read of those who did not experience the same benefits. That difference in results probably has many variables that really can't be quantified and documented.

                            GJ's preference was the Sonoma Pharmaceutical products. This company makes FDA approved wound and skin sprays/gels (Microcyn) for human use and three lines of veterinarian wound and skin sprays/gels (MicrocynAH, Manna Pro Theracyn, and MicrocynVS) for use with animals. The formulations are the same in that Microcyn Technology is used in both lines of product.

                            MicrocynAH Wound and Skin Spray is probably the most discussed on this forum.
