My-Pet-Has-A-Bedsore.-What-Can-I-Do-To-Help-It-Heal.jpg

December 20, 2012 Pet Tips0

If your pet develops a bedsore your family veterinarian or Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology should be alerted and your pet examined to ensure it does not require more attention such as antibiotics or surgical debridement and closure.

Keeping the bedsore clean and dry is the most effective way of managing a bedsore. The use of hydrogen peroxide to flush the bedsore every 2-4 hours in addition to removing the pressure on the sore is the two most effective tools to resolve bedsores.

Lots of soft clean bedding and frequent changes in body position will help prevent the bedsore from becoming larger.

Keeping the wound free of hair and debris is important for the healing process.

When your pet is lying on the affected bedsore put extra padding in that area in the shape of a doughnut, with the bedsore positioned in the center of the doughnut.

A non-stick bandage dressing can be put over the wound when your pet is lying on the affected area to prevent it from sticking to or having too much contact with the bedding.
