I have a dog who developed a MRSA infection following obstruction surgery. I became so paranoid about germs, I had to scrub the dog's crate with a solution that used silver as a component of the spray to kill the MRSA germs. For those of you unfamiliar with this, MRSA is an antibiotic resistant germ that has the capacity to react to new antibiotics thrown at it and develop an immunity to those new antibiotics. I get a medical MRSA newsletter that has the latest attempts to find other ways to manage MRSA germs. MRSA is frequently contacted in hospitals, since it's found everywhere in hospitals and weakened or stressed immune systems provide the perfect opportunity. Hospitals are continually testing ways to kill the MRSA germs. I was pleased to note that in one study, copper was found to prevent the spread of MRSA. More work is being done on this, but the research is promising. I started applying my copper peptides to my face and neck before doing anything with the dog, and always work gloves and scrubs. I hope more will be done to explore the incredible germ fighting possibilities of copper peptides.
