Natural remedies for cats and dogs to help promote wound healing and shorten the recovery time after surgery.

Nutrition plays a major role in skin and bone health. Healthy skin and bones are a result of a well-functioning, synchronized effort by the immune system, tissues and organs in the body. Herbal and marine extracts provide natural antibiotics, proteins, co-enzymes and trace minerals that provide skin support, help to maintain the skin’s ability to withstand and repair the effects of topical skin wounds, scars, burns, environmental exposure to toxins, antigens and microorganisms, bacterial and viral.

Healing after surgery is often a slow, gradual process for your dog or cat and generally depends on the type of operation, severity of the injury and overall health of your pet. Your pet may experience pain, have internal or external bruising, inflammation or tissue damage which affects reduces functioning and mobility.

The healing process involves the restoration and regeneration of connective tissue, nerve fibers and blood vessels which is essential to strengthen the immune system and avoid infection.

Healing is an ability possessed by the animal body to repair damaged parts. This process is sometimes visible (a wound improves) or microscopic (damaged cells are replaced) but both occur on a daily basis, and are given the term regeneration, which is part of the process of healing.

The healing process involves the restoration and regeneration of connective tissue, nerve fibers and blood vessels which is essential to strengthen the immune system and avoid infection. Our pets may not possess those exact characteristics, but they do have healing ability.

An animal’s skin is a wonderful example of regeneration. It is constantly shedding old skin and regenerating new skin cells. Bones, muscles and some nerve fibers can grow to repair themselves. Like a machine, the animal body can make minor repairs. All wounds heal using the same intrinsic process. There are three phases of wound healing: the inflammatory, fibroblastic, and maturation stages.

If we take a simple laceration or cut, inflammation begins after injury and the wound site swells as the biochemical ingredients needed for healing gather: leukocytes and monocytes fibrinogen, histamine, prostaglandins, and vasoactive substances. The inflammatory response is complex and required to prepare the wound for the succeeding phases of healing. In fact, conventional drugs that limit inflammation such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAID’s) will slow the healing of a wound

Next, fibroblasts begin to proliferate and position themselves for collagen synthesis. As collagen content increases, the wound site strengthens. The third and final stage of wound healing lasts the longest. This maturation, or remodeling phase, may continue for weeks or several years (depending on the severity of the injury), with gradual improvements in wound appearance.

As a pet owner, you must determine how serious the wound it and whether a veterinarian needs to be called or you can address the wound at home.  When in doubt, contact your veterinarian.

If your animal presents these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately:

* showing signs of shock

* an animal bite (infection risk if very high)

* bleeding excessively, or if the bleeding will not stop

* a wound that requires stitches

* deep puncture wound, (chest and abdomen most critical)

* foreign matter in the wound

* wound is the result of an animal attack or being hit by a car

* If the wound does not heal after a few days

* any sign of a bacterial infection

If your animal is healthy, is not immuno- compromised or geriatric, most abrasions and superficial wounds can be treated at home by thoroughly washing the wound with soap that is specifically formulated for dogs and cats and drying the area with a clean, cotton cloth. As a pet owner, you can do a lot for your animal to lessen the discomfort and pain associated with an abrasion by using a natural product that soothes the skin, aids in healing and reduces the risk of infection and scarring.

Remember that your pet cannot vocalize pain or discomfort, as we are able to. They may whimper or meow when unsettled and may even lose their appetite or vomit when they have had a procedure. After operations or surgical procedures, an animal’s body may take time to adjust and achieve the harmonious balance it had before and gradual healing should be supported. Let your pet take the time to recover and follow your vet’s advice.

During this period your pet will require pet of rest, quiet, and good nutrition. Mostly, you will need to lavish your pet with lots of TLC and attention. Make your pet as comfortable as possible by providing a safe, quiet sleeping environment with extra bedding for him to rest on.

Remember to follow strict instructions from your vet regarding dietary requirements, administering medications or changing dressings of wounds. Try to be patient, gentle and confident when handling your pet, and keep in mind that he cannot explain the extent of his discomfort or pain.
