Back Pain Injuries

Back Pain & Injuries

Herbal treatments for cats and dogs to help reduce pain, provide care for injuries and to promote healing.

The canine and feline musculoskeletal system has many components including bones, blood vessels, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, as well as support organs that include the liver, kidneys, and adrenal glands. Age, injuries and wear and tear can undermine your pet’s joints and connective tissue, causing pain, stiff and aching joints and triggering inflammatory responses throughout the body.

Back pain and injuries require essential nutrients that support tissue and immune health, encourage the repair and rebuilding of cartilage and connective tissue, help to control your pet’s inflammatory response and support overall systemic health.

Caring for an injured animal is a serious concern. A small injury can quickly become infected, lead to long-term injury, disability, or even death. Because an injury or wound is likely to result in pain for your animal, they may not want you near them or to touch them.  

If your dog or cat is growling or hissing at you, don’t let this prevent you from seeking medical attention for their wounds. A muzzle may be used on a dog or cat, and muzzling may require more than one person. The focuses in wound care are to limit further injury, to stop bleeding and to prevent infection.

To stop bleeding, you may try applying pressure to the area. Never use a tourniquet as this stops circulation. To prevent infection, the wound should be cleansed and a fresh clean bandage should be loosely applied. Only use an animal bandage as human band aids will stick to your animal’s coat.

If the bleeding does not stop within a few minutes, contact your veterinarian. If any wound fills with pus or you notice yellow discharge, take your pet to the vet immediately. If your pet shows swelling at the site of the wound, has a fever, or stops eating, seek the attention of your vet.

If the wound to your animal is severe of if you suspect that they are in great discomfort, or not healing as they should, always seek veterinarian advice!

It is important to stop any bleeding and this is best done by applying firm pressure with a wad of cotton swabs to the bleeding area. Keep the pressure on for at least 5 minutes. If you cannot control the bleeding after applying pressure, seek veterinary attention.

Deep cuts and injuries may need to be stitched to achieve complete healing. Seek veterinary advice in cases of deep or wide cuts

Injuries caused by nails, pieces of wire or anything rusty or dirty may cause tetanus. Consult your vet about tetanus prevention.

Trimming the fur away around the wound will aid healing. The other pets on the block might laugh at your furry friend’s odd hairstyle, but by trimming the hair away the risk of wound infection is lowered

Remember to regularly cut back bushes and hedges in your garden in order to avoid stray branches, which might cause harm to your pet. Never leave wire lying around for your pet to get caught up in – make sure your home is safe place for your pets!

Conventional Remedies:

After inspecting and cleaning the wound out, your vet will most likely use a topical wash and/or antibiotic ointment. Your vet may also give your pet an injection of antibiotics combined with a short acting steroid for inflammation and to reduce fever. They may also dispense oral antibiotics depending on the severity of the wound.

Cats and dogs have very elastic skin with a fair amount of fatty tissue between the skin and the underlying muscle. In cats, the problem of bacterial growth is especially bad because cat skin heals too quickly over a puncture, trapping the bacteria under the skin. Once this occurs, drainage and removal of necrotic (damaged and rotten) tissue is performed.
