today we will talk about... MINOR WOUNDS. Our pet may happen to suffer a minor wound: how should we behave and what are the first aid treatments that we can apply? Sometimes we have the simplest medicine at hand without knowing it. We can prepare a homemade natural healing and soothing gel. This is a very simple, really cheap and extremely effective remedy made with honey and Vaseline oil ideal to treat sores, wounds or abrasions (even on our skin). Here is the recipe. Honey is a wonderful product: a natural antiseptic, it has nourishing and soothing properties. • Pour a soup spoon into a cup. • Add an equal amount of Vaseline oil (you can also use Vaseline ointment, which is more convenient). • Mix vigorously, until a gel is formed. • Add a spoonful of Aloe Vera gel. HOW TO USE THE HEALING GEL? • Disinfect the part using betadine or hydrogen peroxide just once, otherwise it might be counterproductive. Antiseptics are actually detrimental to wound healing, so they should only be used in the very first phase, when there is a risk of infection. • Wash the wound with warm water and a sterile gauze. • NEVER use alcohol. • Trim hair, if present, around the wound. Clean to remove dirt and debris (plant debris, sand, residual hair). • Now apply the gel with a sterile gauze pad. To do this, you can use a gauze that you will smear with the product. • Cover the part with a nonwoven fabric, which you will bandage so that "your furry" does not lick it all away. This remedy is extremely effective. It has a soothing and calming effect on pain and itching therefore your pet will have less urge to lick. Moreover, petroleum jelly (or ointment) will prevent the wound from drying out and forming a scab. In addition, healing will also be facilitated by the nourishing effect of honey. If your furry has more severe wounds, it will be necessary to use more specific treatments. In case the wound does not heal, you should contact your trusted veterinarian who might even resort to regenerative medicine.
