The Importance of Skin Care and Wound Repair Products for Cats

Looking after your cat's skin is important, and requires soothing products that provide effective relief from common problems. Similarly, the right wound care for cats requires certain supplies, which we stock right here at Vet Products Direct. See our full range today, or read on for more information about skin care and wound care.

Promoting better skin care for your cat

It's not just about appearances for cats — their skin and coats reflect their health as well. Vet experts say that for healthy skin for your feline, it is important to have a solid foundation of good nutrition, flea prevention, and grooming.  

The presence of skin problems in cats is often an indication of something more serious. Having a cat that pulls out their hair or scratches themselves vigorously could be the result of parasites or allergies. When this happens, treatment is probably necessary.

You should always consult a veterinarian when diagnosing and treating skin issues, but there are some simple and natural ways to improve the skin of your cat. We stock a range of products that promote better skin health for your feline.

Dermoscent Essential 6 for Cats is a unique blend of essential fatty acids and essential oils that reduces odour and moisturises dry skin in cats.

HempPet Cat Oil Blend with Hoki Fish and MCT Oil is high in EFAs, rich in DHA and EPA, and contains MCT derived from coconut oil, which is known for its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, helping to promote healthy skin and coat.

The best products for effective wound care for cats

It’s important to know how to take care of wounds on your cat, just in case. Fortunately, cats tend to take excellent care of themselves and don't like to engage in unnecessary conflicts. However, some cats who are curious or who live outdoors may encounter trouble from time to time!

Cat wound cleaners

When treating wounds on a cat, it is best to err on the side of caution. All wounds should be treated as potential sources of infection. The presence of contaminants can result in an infection and increase the severity of the wound. This is where cat wound cleaners play an important role in wound care for cats.

When treating a wound, your first priority should be controlling the bleeding while also taking precautions to prevent infection. It is important to keep yourself safe when helping a cat with a wound. Stress and fear often cause cats to revert to "survival mode" and they may be reluctant to accept treatment.

Use wound cleaners carefully and slowly, so that you don’t panic your cat.

Cat wound treatment

Take your cat to your veterinarian or emergency care right away if the wounds are extensive or there are indications of infection, such as swelling, redness, or pus. In order for your feline to receive the proper cat wound treatment they need, sedation is likely to be required.

Once the wound has been treated, the area must be kept clean, regardless of whether it is a mild or serious wound. To keep your cat from licking their wound, you may want to apply a bandage or use a plastic cone or Elizabethan collar.
