Cuts

Herbal healing treatments to help care for wounds such as cuts in dogs and cats.

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 to 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.

Cats and dogs, especially young puppies, kittens and active, working dogs and cats, experience a variety of cuts, scrapes, bites and wounds. Rough and tumble play or a run through the woods can produce cuts and wounds in your dogs or cats. When your pet is injured, you must determine how serious the wound is and whether or not medical attention is necessary.

In many cases, minor cuts and abrasions can be dealt with at home, while deeper more penetrating wounds may require a trip to the vet or emergency animal hospital.

So when does your pet’s wound require medical treatment? As a general rule, you should always seek advice from your pet’s veterinarian if you have any doubt about the treatment or severity of your pet’s wound.

Your pet requires medical treatment if:

Are showing signs of shock

Are bleeding excessively, or if the bleeding will not stop

The wound is deep enough to require stitches

There is a deep puncture wound, especially if in the chest or abdominal regions

There is foreign material in the wound

The wound is the result of being hit by a car or attacked by a larger animal

The wound does not seem to be healing after a few days or shows any sign of bacterial infection

Important reminders in address cuts and wounds:

Keep calm when your pet is injured. Even small cuts on ears and paws can bleed excessively and often cause owners to panic. Remember that your pet is looking to you to make it better so the calmer you remain, the more at ease they will feel.

As with any wound, the first step is to stop the bleeding. This can be done by applying firm pressure to the area using a clean cotton swab. Keeping pressure on the area for about 5 min is usually enough to stop bleeding, however, if this is unsuccessful and the bleeding will not stop then veterinary assistance is necessary.

Once bleeding has been stopped, then the next step is to clean the wound. Using warm water, and clean cotton swabs or cotton balls, clean the wound from the center outward making sure that all foreign particles are removed. 

Once wounds have been cleaned, watch for any sign of infection. Infected wounds often swell, become red and sensitive and in some cases will produce discharge. If infection occurs, a trip to the vet may be necessary.

Keep in mind that your pet may be in pain and may try to bite or scratch. Be patient and kind with your pet.
