Injuries

Herbal treatments for injured cats and dogs to help care for pet injuries and promote healing.

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 and provide natural antibiotics, proteins, co-enzymes and trace minerals that support skin and 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.

Caring for a hurt animal is nothing to take lightly. 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.

If your dog or cat is growling or hissing at you – don’t let this deter you from seeking medical attention for their wounds. A muzzle may be used on a dog, or you may try asking someone to help you. The two main objectives in wound care are: to stop any bleeding, and to prevent infection.

To stop the 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. Do not use human band aids, as they 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. Similarly, if your pet shows swelling at the site of the wound, has a fever, or stops eating, seek the attention of your vet.

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 injuries 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.

Please note: If the wound to your animal is severe of if you suspect that they are experiencing great discomfort, or not healing as they should, always seek veterinarian advice.

Herbal Remedies:

Herbal remedies function as first aid products to expedite and support the natural healing process, to soothe pain and help to gently clean open wounds, cuts and scrapes, to support the body’s ability to resist infections, to boost immunity, to stimulate new tissue growth for wound healing and promote health in connective tissues, soft tissue, tendons, muscles & bones, to reduce inflammation and inhibit growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi and to speed the healing process from the inside out.  

Cuts on paws and ears bleed a lot because these areas have a very good blood supply. 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!

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.
