Animals who bite eachother when they attack or defend themselves use there canine or eye teeth. These teeth can cause deep puncture wounds which may appear to heal quickly, but have the potential to infect, because teeth carry bacteria. This can cause abscesses, heat, swelling and pain to develop beneath the closed wound.
Oral Treatment / Remedies Given by Mouth
Topical Application to the Wound
When the wound is clean, to promote healing and relieve pain use Hypericum/Calendula Cream (Hypercal). Apply 2-3 times daily until healed.
Homeopathic Hypericum and Calendula is a safe non-toxic cream, which is the ideal application for all types of wounds, cuts and sores. It combines the natural closing and healing properties of Calendula and the infection fighting and pain relieving properties of Hypericum.
NOTE: Calendula should never be used on abscessed wounds that need to drain. Only use Calendula on a clean wound that is ready to close.
Note: The same remedies and dosing schedules used above for pets can be used for people who have sustained a bite wound from an animal.
