Wordless Wednesday – First Aid Wound Care For Pets


Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

How To Care For Your Pet’s Wounds

If you’re like me, every now and then, you will end up with a minor cut or abrasion as you go about your normal activities of the day. Most frequently, when this happens, I have either become the unwitting victim of a malicious paper cut, a scrape from a fall, or the accidental swipe of a cat’s claw during playtime. To make sure my cuts do not become infected, I usually keep a box of alcohol pads on hand that I an use to quickly and conveniently clean out my wounds.

But, it recently occurred to me – what should we pet parents do if our precious cats and dogs ever accidently end up with a cut or abrasion that isn’t serious enough to require a vet visit, but definitely requires cleansing and parental tender loving care?

Most of us know that we should never use human medications on cats or dogs, but should keep specialty treatments on hand that are safe for our furry family members.

Fauna Care

I did a little digging and discovered that Fauna Care makes a specialty line of pet wound care products that are specifically designed for general and first aid care as well as moisturization and anti-fungal conditions.

There products work for your pet rabbits as well. They even have an equine line for if you are lucky enough to have your own horse!

Now is the perfect time to create or update your pet’s First Aid Kit. Visit Fauna Care to see which product best fits your pet’s needs and learn if you qualify to be a Product Tester!

    Actually, I do have a petcare kit for Charlie! When I clip his nails sometimes I hit the quick and it bleeds so I have this powder they sell and you put it on there and it stops the bleeding right away! Thanks for asking. Have a great day my friend and thank you for all the wonderful recipes too! hugs…. I LOVE TO COOK… my daughter is the baker in the family. I’m not so good I must admit.

  5. Ellen Pilch says:

    I have a dozen cats so I should make a first aid kit to have for an emergency.

  6. I did a pet first aid course. I feel happier that I can cope with minor emergencies BUT it’s still ‘when in doubt get to a vet’.

      Kudos to you for taking a pet first aid course! It’s so important to know what to do, when to do it, and when to take our loved ones to the vet!

  7. Pam Greer says:

    We always keep some antiseptic spray though we don’t have to use it very often.

  8. Ramona,

    Good info to know if I had pets. Thanks for sharing and everyone is welcome to join my WW linky party this month while I’m doing the April challenge.

    Thanks for letting us know about this. Could have used it the two times Mau was bit my neighbor cat, while I waited for vet to open.

  10. Valentine says:

    I will tell my human she needs to get started pronto on putting my kit together. Thanks for the tip!

  11. Kristen H says:

    I always had cornstarch on hand to stop the bleeding (we carried it in our kits when I worked at a zoo in case a bird of prey broke a feather too close to the body). It is good to know there are actual products to help our pets.

  12. Karen Waide says:

    Not having any pets besides goldfish, I had never even thought of pets needing different medicines for first aid.

  13. Erin The Cat says:

    Excellent and timely advice now spring is on the way (ish) I shall start putting together a kit ASAP.

    Thanks for hosting! Have a great week 🙂

  16. This is so good to know! I remember when our lovely cats were alive, they would often have a nick or scratch (or occasionally worse) and I was often at a loss for what to do to help them feel better. Thank you so much for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party.

    Good post cute pic heheh!

  18. It is so important to be able to care for your cats! I did a first aid course for pets!

  19. Timmy Tomcat says:

    Great to know as you never know

  20. Rosey says:

    Definitely good to know. Our cat, who is an amazing jumper, missed her jump today and tumbled pretty bad. I was worried but she seems okay.

  21. Vivian Black says:

    It was my veterinarian who suggested that we put together a pet wound first aid kit. I don’t know why we didn’t think about this sooner. You are right to say that we should never use human medications on cats or dogs. This is why regular wound care for humans won’t work for dogs and cats. We definitely will be purchasing some specialty treatments to keep on hand.
