Cat Skin Care & Wound Repair Supplies
It's not just about appearances for cats — their skin and coats reflect their health as well. Vet experts say that for healthy skin, 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 serious going on. Having a cat that pulls out their hair or scratches themselves vigorously, could be the result of parasites or allergies.
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.
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.

It is possible that you will need to know how to care for wounds on your cat one day. 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.
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.
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.
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 cat to receive the proper care they need, sedation is likely to be required.
Once it is 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.
