Natural cleansing & disinfection
Cuts, scrapes, bites and stings, ringworm, flea-bite dermatitis, hot spots, minor burns: these are all conditions that your dog or cat may experience at one or other stage in their lifetime. Though minor, these can cause pain and discomfort for your pet. By treating these problems quickly, effectively and naturally, healing time will be shortened and complications such as scarring and infection can be minimised. The skin is a barrier which helps to prevent bacteria and other micro-organisms from entering the body. Once the skin is broken due to a wound, infection or insect bite, further infection can set in to delay healing and even make the original problem worse! Proper skin care is therefore very important!
Clean wounds mean better healing and less discomfort for your furry friend!

Some helpful tips for pet wound care
- 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. Always trim back branches that have thorns, and try to keep garden tools stored away – avoid leaving them exposed. Never leave wire lying around for your pet to get caught up in – make sure your home is safe place for all creatures great and small!
