Wounds
If your pet has a mild wound, clean it with saline solution and then disinfect it regularly with an antiseptic (povidone or povidone iodine diluted with water, iodine diluted with water or clean water with soap). However, if it does not improve within a few days, go to the veterinarian to evaluate it and decide which guidelines to follow, to prevent the wound from getting worse and becoming infected.

If it is not something superficial or the wounds have been caused by another animal's bite, you should go to your veterinarian to assess the wound and determine which is the most recommended treatment, since these kinds of wounds almost always end up becoming infected; and should be systemically treated with antibiotics (injectable / oral) for it to heal properly and so that abscesses (pockets of pus) do not form in the area.
We suggest you to visit your nearest vet as soon as possible.

Hello:

The presence of blood in your pet's stool can have several causes: parasites, inadequate food, hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, rectal wounds, and even stress. The treatment can vary greatly depending on what causes it.

It is essential for you to go to a veterinarian to reach a specific diagnosis and solve the problem.

All the best,
