"For Pet Skin, too! – First Aid Salve should not only be part of a human first-aid kit, but it should also be an important inclusion in our pet “medicine cabinets.” I regularly use First Aid on a cat’s skin eruptions from an auto-immune disorder for relief of itching and healing of inflammation and infection. The scabs lift off easily when they’re ready. One of my large dogs tore the callous off an elbow and it was not possible to suture. First Aid healed the wound nicely, preventing complications. It now has a protective layer of skin over it. I noticed that the dog didn’t “worry” the sore after the salve was applied, even though it was left unbandaged. Because First Aid is non-irritating and calming for the skin, I believe that the animal is more likely to leave a wound alone. Another dog had an allergic skin reaction of unknown origin, resulting in red blotches on her abdomen with some crusty sores. This inflammation caused the dog great distress. The vet advised me to use a healing ointment and so I used First Aid on the affected skin three times a day. The rash and sores healed with no complications. A bonus for me: when I use First Aid on my pets, I enjoy the lovely scent of lavender about them!" - Laurie V.
