Does anyone remember the 'proper' Liverine unction?

    I remember when hubby and I got our first dog together almost 20 years ago the vet sold us a tub of liverine unction, it was in a flat round blue tub and was like a red wax. It was fantastic stuff, used it on any sores, cuts, anything really. Then it just seemed to disappear, I've recently searched online for it but can only find big tall tubs and I'm not sure if it is the same stuff :confused:

    Anyone know if the original is still made and where to buy it?

    TIA :)

    I use this after being recommended by the pet shop. I have never seen the old stuff but this is a reddy pinky colour and waxy/gell like. Am not sure if that helps really :huh:

    It is the same ointment in that it works just as well but it is pink in colour rather than the vibrant red it used to be. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone have a link for this please. Our family used it for years, used the last of my tin, can't find it anywhere. The nice part is they can lick it off and the licking aids healing. Thank you

    I know this is an old thread but just came across it whilst searching again and realised I hadn't answered. I get mine form my local pet shop ( http://www.animalmagicpetshop.co.uk/ ) who do online and I think you can get it direct ( http://liverine.co.uk ). Still use it regularly.

    I was an instructor at staff's police dog training school. We used to visit the north staff's hunt kennels and the master of the hounds Derek Stockton, used to treat the hounds with this cream, he used to say it would put hair on a billiard ball.

    Hopes this helps. See the photo below.

    I used mine for over 20 years, and it worked fine to the last drop. I would give anything to get it again, but I believe the company is no longer in business.

    Do you by any chance know of any place that might still have some stock of this? I have been searching for it for almost 15 years.

    I still have the original blue tin from the 60's or maybe 50's! Am using the last of pink unction on my cat who the vets would have on steroids. It's still performing. Will definitely buy the latest when I run out. It's online.X

    Wait, what do you mean it's online? I've not been able to find it anywhere. Looks like the company is no longer active, can you tell me where you found it?

    hi darl. can't get original anymore. It's clear ointment now. Just make sure it's precipitated Sulphur BP 19o/o per cent.
    It's no longer pink or sticky. Precipitated Sulphur BP 19o/o per cent
