How to Treat Wounds on Dogs and Cats: Natural Care to Heal Your Furry Friend Safely

Oct 18, 2017

how to care for your dog - girl holding a cute puppy

Let’s be real: our fur babies are part of the family, so why not give them the same care you would give to any other loved one? Like us, pets get cuts, scrapes, and burns often. It can be from a simple rough rock in the park, a run-in protecting you from an evil squirrel, or obsessive self-grooming. Often it can take much longer for their wounds to heal, because their intuition is to lick these spots as much as possible, making them much worse and prolonged.

If you are anything like me (over-protective pet mom), you ask your vet what the best solution is. My vet suggested, “Put some Neosporin on it.” I was not a fan of this advice at all, because Neosporin has three antibiotics and a 10% chance of allergic reaction in humans*. I pay double to get my dog an all-natural, high-end dog food with no chemicals, so I w rub chemicals all over his leg just for him to lick off!

How to treat a wound on your pet:

Step 1: Clean the affected area

Wash the area with warm water until all visible debris is gone.

Step 2: Pat dry.

Using a paper towel or clean, dry cloth, dry the wound.

Step 3: Apply CUROXEN first aid to the wound

Please don't apply a bandage.

CUROXEN first aid contains all-natural and organic ingredients. Made with oxygenated olive oil, calendula, and lavender help to clean the area, ease the pain, and speed up the healing process. There are no nasty chemicals or petroleum-based products in CUROXEN, so it won’t cause any allergic reactions.


Step 4: Prevent your pet from licking

You can try and distract your pet for at least 10 minutes. Longer is better. Ideas include: feeding, taking them for a walk, playing fetch, or giving them a good belly rub.

Step 5: Reapply CUROXEN first aid to the wound

You need to reapply CUROXEN first aid at least two to three times a day by repeating steps 1-4.

Helpful tips:

  • Place small pets on a table or counter for easy access.
  • If your pet has a tendency to nip or bite, you may want to muzzle, before you begin treatment.
  • Shaving affected area can be very helpful, if you feel comfortable doing so.
  • If your pet is obsessively messing with the wound, you may want to try putting them in a protective e-collar.
  • Have someone help you to restrain your pet, if your pet is uneasy about being messed with.
  • If wound does not heal in a week or so, please consult a veterinarian.

CUROXEN first aid will get your best friend back to their spunky, sassy, sporty self in no time! Heal stronger, safer, and smarter!

*Both branded and generic antibiotic creams and ointments rely on three main medications, two of which — neomycin and bacitracin — earned the dubious title of Allergen of the Year by the American Contact Dermatitis Association (ACDA) in 2010 and 2003, respectively.
*Neomycin creates an allergic reaction in approximately 10% of consumers, while 9.2% reacted negatively to bacitracin, with reactions ranging from skin rash to anaphylaxis.
