Injuries such as open wounds can often happen to pets while out of our sight for only a moment and in the blink of an eye. Perhaps it occurred during a fight with another animal, as a result of becoming entangled in thick brush and branches, maybe the animal came into contact with some dangerous debris, became caught on a torn piece of fencing or possibly was in an accident of some sort. Many times we may not even be able to determine the cause of our pet's injury, but regardless of the contributing factors the challenge is always the same.
Treating an open wound on an animal is always a difficult task, especially when you can't tell your pet to leave the area alone and keep the bandage in tact. How many of us have spent endless amounts of time applying treatment to a wound and strategically placing and wrapping a bandage so that it could be kept in place, only to have the animal remove it within seconds leaving the wound completely exposed? Likely many of us have been in this situation.
An effective solution to this problem is an all-natural product called Dy's Liquid Bandage. It was originally produced for the purposes of treating horse injuries, wounds, saddle sores and rain rot etc, however, it is also widely used on dogs and cats to treat a variety of minor or more serious wounds and injuries. The product contains a combination of soothing herbs in an olive oil and beeswax formula. The beeswax works to cover the wound with a waterproof barrier, which in addition to repelling flies also allows air to penetrate and aid in healing the wound. The olive oil and medicinal herbs absorb easily into the skin and treat the injury from the inside out.
[YEA] I have a terrier mix that obsess's about anything on his body. Not sure what irritated his belly but it was red with a few bumps. One being about half inch across. Red and crusty looking. Probably from his obsessive licking. Soooo seeing how Apple cider vinegar works on so much. I diluted water one third to two third's ACV wiped it for 2 days, first day dried it up, second day not red at all. Third day, just flecking off dead skin from wound. I love this stuff. I am taking it internally, and just today added it to my dogs water. Great stuff.
[YEA] Jack, my beagle mix, had some bug bites(fur was sticking up) on his head last week and itched them to an open sore. I found this site, read up upon ACV and within 2 days his sores and bites went completely away. Now he has a little scab on it. I was just amazed how this remedy worked. Now I'm trying it on my beagle/dach. mix, Bailey. She's gets these ear rashes/infections often, I'm hoping ACV will work miracles for her too. Thanks again!!
[YEA] My indoor cat managed to badly cut a vein on her hind leg. The veterinary office does not open until 10:00 am and the accident happened at 8:30 am. I applied cayenne pepper and the bleeding slowed then stopped.When I went to see the vet, at first she said the injury could not be too serious because it wasnt bleeding. When the wound was washed then the bleeding started again. My cat required four stitches. What works for humans also works for your pets.
[YEA] Colloidial Silver is an awesome remedy for virtually any bacterial infection; internal or external. I have cured my dog's eye and ear irritations (and my pink eye) with a couple drops, the results were immediate. It comes in drops or spray and I have both. I spray my dog's cuts, sores, rashes and teeth because it does not sting. Antibiotics are inferior to Colloidial Silver, which was commonly used before antibiotics were popularized. It is found at health food and Meijer stores and is inexpensive for its many possible uses. Research it; you'll be glad you did.
[YEA] I make my own colloidal silver for my critters. I just want to rell you my little guy's troubles. He's a 5yr old ferret name Chewy. He just had his gallbadder & some of his liver removed on7-17-07 and when I got him home first thing I did was spray colloidal silver on his belly.and today I looked at it and wow its almost cleared up, back to his real color. Also Chewy has the best vet in this world! and this helped me to trust and love! thak you.
