What can I use to treat a wound on my cat?

If your cat comes home with a deep laceration or flesh wound, you should purrobably take her to the vet to have the wound properly cleaned and stitched up. Minor cuts, grazes, scratches and scrapes shouldn’t need a veterinary consultation – just some basic home wound treatment and lots of comfort and love should suffice. First, make sure the wound is clean using a spray-application would cleaner (always read the usage instructions on the product). Then, apply a germicidal barrier in the form of a spray, gel or ointment, to prevent infection. Lastly, if necessary, bandage the wound to protect it, or use a medical collar to stop your cat from licking or nibbling at her wound.

What can I put on my cat’s wound to help it heal?

What ointment can I put on a cat wound?

A lot of cat owners ask if they can use Neosporin on cat wounds. In truth, it can be used on cats in very small amounts, but even the manufacturer recommends not using it on animals and suggests speaking to a veterinarian for further advice. Furtunately, your cat won’t need a human alternative because Pet Hero has enough cat-friendly wound care products for you to choose from.

We hope your purry friend recovers very soon!
