TetraSilver TetrOxide ( TSTO )
What is SilverQuine?

SILVERQUINE Animal Wound Dressing is a water-base hydro gel wound dressing for use in moist wound care management. The gel contains silver that may help inhibit the growth of microorganisms within the dressing. SILVERQUINE Animal Wound Dressing Gel has been evaluated in standard tests that show it can reduce the level of common microorganisms.
Indications for Use
Topical management of Minor Cuts, Lacerations, Abrasions, 1st and 2nd Degree Burns, Skin Irritations

It has been known for over a century that certain preparations of silver have germicidal properties. As a result, prior to the invention of modern day antibiotics, silver was used to help treat wounds and other types of infections in animals. With the development of natural antibiotics, silver preparations were phased out in favor of synthetic antibiotics. Unfortunately, over the course of the past 25 years, multiple bacteria have developed resistance to common antibiotics on the market today. In some circumstances, prolonged courses of expensive antibiotics have to be used to get a minimal response and expose your pet to potent side effects. Worse yet, some antibiotics are totally ineffective in some cases. As a result, the pet industry is in urgent need of new technology that has broad spectrum antimicrobial activity to reduce wound healing times and reduce the risk of side effects from current treatments.

Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing is a new, unique, nano-particulate based silver that is very different from the synthetic antibiotics used for the past 80 years in the animal arena. Our technology is ALL NATURAL and contains no alcohol or synthetic chemicals that inhibit stem cell activity or epithelization. In addition, the silver in our animal wound dressing gel is not just another silver. Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing consists of silver nanomolecules (less than .015 micrometers in size) with an interior metallic silver and an exterior of ionic silver suspended within a water molecule.

How Does it Work?
Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing Gel is manufactured using a patented technology to produce metallic silver nanoparticles (Ag0) coated with tetrasilver tetroxide (Ag4O4). The silver hydro-gel has both ionic and covalent properties. The metallic core (Ag0) facilitates continuous electron transfer, versus an action of single-electron transfer per silver ion.

The ingredients in Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing Gel are all natural. In addition to the patented, unique, nano-particles of silver, the product also contains purified water, TEA, and carbomer. TEA (triethanolamine) and carbomer are organic products that are mixed together in very low concentrations to form a gel. Our Silverquine Gel product contains these two ingredients in minute concentrations for a gelling effect. Both of these ingredients are commonly used in cosmetic products for animals and are considered very safe.
The key antimicrobial agent in Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing Gel is the patented silver nanoparticles. For the past 15 years, there has been a significant push to use the lowest possible dose effective to treat an infection. Lower doses typically result in fewer side effects. For example, one of the most common topical therapies currently used in the pet industry is silver sulfadiazine cream. That product contains 10,000ppm of silver. Such high concentrations often time leads to wound maceration and the need for debridement of some skin around the infected wound area. Such high concentrations can have a negative impact on stem cell activity and epithelization (new skin growth and wound closing) resulting in slower wound healing. Ironically, our products containing Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing Gel contains less than 100ppm of silver, does not negatively impact stem cell activity and epithelization, and promotes effective wound healing.

Silverquine Animal Wound Dressing Gel has been studied in a series of safety studies including animals. These safety and toxicology studies have demonstrated safe, beneficial, and non-toxic data.

Tetrasil (Terrasil) attacks bacterial, viral, and fungal infections like no other skin cream or ointment. It is highly recommended to relieve itching, rashes, redness, burning and other unwanted symptoms of skin infections. Customers say the result is not just rapid relief of symptoms, but the entire elimination of the root causes of these ailments.

Laboratory analysis, clinical studies, and patient feedback has convinced Dr. Horowitz that Tetrasil's active ingredient, Tetrasilver Tetroxide, interacts with the surfaces of bacterial, fungal and viral membranes to help people heal better and faster than any other product in its class.    
Features & Ingredients
Upon contact, TETRASIL's unique chemical structure releases both a micro-electrical charge and therapeutic oxygen, which immediately begins to kill pathogens.
Dr. Horowitz expects this product, and advertisment, will be attacked vigorously by the FDA simply because it works so well, at such low cost, without any risks of toxicity when used correctly, and without dangerous side effects presented by all pharmaceutical antibiotics. (See instructions.)

Welcome to

Introducing the most exciting topical multi purpose skin ointment for years – TETRASIL with active Tetrasilver Tetroxide TST suspended in a soothing and healing natural jojoba oil, palmarosa and organic wax base.

Nothing else works like TETRASIL. TETRASIL is the only skin ointment in the world that contains Tetrasilver Tetroxide TST, a patented, highly stable multivalent silver oxide formed by a combination of four atoms of silver and four atoms of oxygen in a single molecule called TsT.

Dear Mr. Goldsmith:

This letter concerns your firm’s marketing of the products Tetrasil and Genisil on your websites,, and According to information on your websites, your “Tetrasilver Tetroxide (TST) Ointments,” are intended to prevent, treat, or cure disease conditions. Statements on your websites that document these intended uses include, but are not limited to, the following:

Tetrasil (

    • “Tetrasil's key ingredient, (TST), has a natural attraction to the surface of bacteria, fungi and viruses. These pathogens are responsible for the itching, rashes, redness, burning and other unwanted symptoms of the skin conditions. Upon contact, TST's unique chemical structure releases both a micro electrical charge and oxygen, which immediately begins to kill the pathogens.”

    • “Regardless of the stage of your Genital Herpes, Tetrasil may begin to provide relief in as fast as TWO DAYS.”

    • “Before using Tetrasil, I had tried using Favmir and Valtrex. Each only worsened the length of my outbreaks and their severity. I had tried numerous expensive substances, ointments, and injections, and found myself being a guinea pig for researchers as well. It had been a long, disappointing five-year search only to find nothing worked. Tetrasil, however, was going to be the last thing I tried, and I am glad I did.”

    • “On your lip, Tetrasil's active bio-electro chemistry (TST) surrounds the cold sore and quickly begins to attack the herpes simplex virus (HSV) that causes the tingling, blistering and weeping.”

    • “Tetrasil Spells the End of Herpes Related Breakouts”

    Hello, I am a woman with a history of Herpes Simplex Virus. About every month I would have a severe outbreak on my face caused by the herpes virus. . . I have tried many other treatments for my outbreaks, but only Tetrasil effectively rid me of them.”

    • “People report success and relief from Shingles using Tetrasil during any of the active stages of the shingles virus (Herpes Zoster).”

    • “Doctor's Report #2: “Tetrasil is effective for the treatment of Erysipelas infections of the skin caused by the A Group B-Hemolytic Streptococcus and healed the skin in a conducive manner."

    • “Tetrasil ointment appeared to be extremely efficient against the opportunistic pathogens present in diabetic feet, as well as the healing of the infection."

Genisil (

    • “There is NO CURE for Herpes. RIGHT?

    Think again! If you’ve been looking for a herpes product that actually delivers on its promises, your search is over.”

    • “The silver and oxygen in Genisil will begin to kill the inflammation causing herpes virus quickly and safely upon contact, BEFORE YOU EVER SEE AN OUTBREAK.”

    • “EJC Molecules have a selective attraction to exposed nitrogen groups on the membrane proteins of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Upon contact, EJC's go through an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction, which studies suggest may be instrumental in speeding wound healing.”

    • “When oxygen is introduced into the area it attacks microbes without a coating and diseased cells with deficient wall enzymes. It [oxidises] them, allowing them to be cleared from the body and replaced with healthy new cells. The broad application of oxygen therapy in medicine is based on the simple principle that diseased cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen and that cells cannot become diseased if they are supplied with sufficient oxygen.”

    • “Genisil is a uniquely formulated all-natural ointment. It contains a patented compound of the most potent natural anti-virals on earth, plus other ingredients that work FAST to resolve herpes issues.”

    • “With four silver atoms, patented EJC Molecules are significantly more potent than other silvers in the speed with which it kills viruses, bacteria and fungi, including Staphylococcus aureus, responsible for bacterial folliculitis and the yeast responsible for fungal folliculitis.”

Duplicate Testimonials regarding Tetrasil and Genisil; found on each website &

    • “Doctor's Report

    Two patients with severe recurring genital herpes outbreaks used it, applying the ointment three times daily. Over a period of 2-4 days, the Herpes sores regressed and dried out."

    • “the frequency of herpes outbreaks have been reduced by 50%, as well as their healing time. For me, it has been the ONLY product that has helped to reduce the reoccurrence and severity of my outbreaks.”

    • “An RN: The sore disappeared in 24 hours

    I am a 42 year old female who has suffered from Herpes virus for the last 6 years. Trying most of the pharmaceutical remedies, nothing seemed to work. So I started searching for an alternative. Applying it to an area that was inflamed, red, painful and itchy (signs of an outbreak for me) the sore disappeared within 24 hrs and I have not had a sign of it since. It's almost been a year. Sherry, R.N., Oregon”

Claims for TST Ointments found on

    • “TsT’s Interaction on Herpes Simplex Virus: As TST makes contact with the HSV virus, it will start electrocuting the gp-G terminals as well as the entire protein envelope. TST will continue its REDOX reaction and form chelate complexes of silver around the entire viral surface. The combination of electrocution and chelation will prevent the virus from performing its essential life functions and cause its death within minutes.”

    • “In addition to EJC’s anti-microbial properties, the combination of electrical energy and singlet oxygen apparently promote the growth of tissue, thus serving as a potential treatment for burn victims and other applications requiring a stimulus of tissue growth.”

These claims are supplemented by the metatags that you use to bring consumers to your websites. The metatags include “cold sores,” “oral herpes,” “shingles,” “treatment for skin disease or disorder,” “herpes,” “herpes simplex,” “genital herpes,” “herpes simple virus,” “HSV,” “vaginal herpes,” “penal herpes,” “herpes infection,” “bacterial infection,” “viral infection,” and “fungal infection.”

Your “Tetrasilver Tetroxide (TST) Ointments,” including “Tetrasil,” and “Genisil,” are drugs, as defined by section 201(g)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act), 21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1), because they are intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease. Moreover, these products are new drugs, as defined by section 201(p) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 321(p), because they are not generally recognized as safe and effective for their labeled uses. Under sections 301(d) and 505(a) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. §§ 331(d) and 355(a), a new drug may not be introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce unless an FDA-approved application is in effect for it. Your sale of Tetrasil and Genisil without approved applications violates these provisions of the Act.

Furthermore, because Tetrasil and Genisil are offered for conditions, such as herpes, which are not amenable to self-diagnosis and treatment by individuals who are not medical practitioners, adequate directions cannot be written so that a layman can use it safely for their intended uses. Thus, your products’ labeling fails to bear adequate directions for their intended uses, causing them to be misbranded under section 502(f)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(1).

Moreover, your Tetrasilver Tetroxide (TST) Ointments, to the extent that they are labeled and promoted for over the counter (OTC) use, are subject to 21 CFR § 310.548, which states that there is a lack of adequate data to establish general recognition of the safety and effectiveness of silver salts for OTC use in the treatment or prevention of any disease. Any OTC drug products containing these ingredients that are promoted, labeled, or represented for the treatment or prevention of any disease are regarded as new drugs within the meaning of section 201(p) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 321(p), and require approved applications under section 505 for marketing. Thus, Tetrasil and Genisil are unapproved new drugs and their delivery into interstate commerce violates section 301(d) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 331(d).

The issues and violations cited in this letter are not intended to be an all-inclusive statement of violations that exist in connection with your products. You are responsible for investigating and determining the causes of the violations identified above and for preventing their recurrence or the occurrence of other violations. It is your responsibility to assure that your firm complies with all requirements of federal law and FDA regulations.

You should take prompt action to correct the violations cited in this letter.

Upon contact, Tetrasil's unique bio-electro chemistry begins to attack the bacterial, viral and fungal skin infections that cause itching, rashes, redness, burning and other unwanted symptoms. Customers say the result is not just rapid relief, but elimination of the root cause. And, with natural ingredients, Tetrasil soothes the skin as it heals.


Tetrasilver Tetroxide is a charged silver oxide molecular device. Unlike colloidal silver, Tetrasilver Tetroxide is an Electron-Jumping Compound® with a naturally occurring electrical potential many times more powerful than colloidal silver. Further, unlike colloidal silver, Tetrasilver Tetroxide (also called TST™) does not bind with healthy tissue. Therefore it does not produce either temporary or permanent color change to the skin.

TETRASIL contains TST, suspended in an ointment base (organic wax, Jojoba oil). The active ingredient is a small inorganic, semi-conducting molecular crystal that contains two monovalent and two trivalent silver ions that are electrically balanced by four oxygen ions.

Procedures and quality controls have been developed and established to ensure that the supply and proper handling of TETRASIL is consistently manufactured to strict standards, following US Food & Drug Administration Good Manufacturing Procedure (GMP) guidelines in GMP-registered facilities.

Manufacturing and Handling
