Does your pet get into a lot of fights? Do they go running into the woods without a care? Maybe your pet is just simply accident prone...If so you might need something that helps heal wounds and can also fight infection. I have a dog who is constantly getting cuts, scrapes, and punctures to name only a few of her injuries. I use this healing salve even over her stitches. It heals the wound quickly and keeps it from becoming infected. Her wounds heal faster, and there is less scaring. Works better than any over the counter neosporin product.. I'm also not worried if she licks her wounds with this on it, as its all natural and wont hurt her.
