Home Remedies For Skin Bruises
1. First Aid For Skin Bruises:
Clean the wound with a non-irritating antiseptic diluted in lukewarm water. Use a towel or cloth to clean the wound; don’t use cotton or any other materials that are loose-fibered, as the threads may fuse with the wound. Help the dog with a cold compress - just a cold, wet towel or small bag of iced-up vegetables. Gently place it in the bruise for a few minutes. Never forget to cover up with gauze or bandage the wound to protect the dog from licking it.
2. Always change the bandages on a daily basis until the bruise/wound heals and keep them from getting wet. If there are any other minor injuries, apply a small layer of triple antibiotic ointment to the injured area 2 to 3 times/daily.
3. For Skin Bruises: Mix together 1/2 teaspoon calendula tincture, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 1 pint of water. Soak the bruised paw in the calendula solution. If the bruised area is in the torso, but the solution in a large syringe or squirt bottle and apply it to the bruised area gently. For the first 24 hours, repeat the application or soaking every 4 - 6 hours. After that, do it as required.
4. For Smaller Wounds: Mix together 1/2 teaspoon Echinacea/goldenseal tincture, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 1-pint water. Wash out the fresh wounds and bruises with large amounts of this solution. If the dogs have a draining abscess, clean it with Echinacea/goldenseal solution. While handling an abscess always wear latex gloves.
5. Peppermint oil is a cooling, anti-inflammatory herb with pain-relieving effects; cold peppermint tea bag compress may offer some comfort for acute injuries.
