How do I treat my cat's/kitten's cut, wound or puncture with Banixx?
Did your cat or kitten get injured? For cuts, tears, lacerations, puncture wounds, etc. Banixx Pet Care is an effective solution to aid in the recovery of such issues. Cats and kittens can be a bit challenging to treat sometimes, so we at Banixx want to make the process as easy as possible AND as effective as possible! We’ve already done the lion’s share of this by developing a wound care solution that has no perfume/smell (so your kitty is not pre-warned), no burn/sting upon application to make her frightened, and no stickiness to get all over you, your rugs and your furniture!!
To begin the treatment process, clean your cat's/kitten's infection (cut, wound, or puncture) with plain water, only if necessary. Let the affected area dry or pat it dry carefully and gently with sterile gauze. Then apply a gentle coat of Banixx Pet Care. Note: since cats tend to be less tolerant of spray than some other species, such as your dog, it’s a good idea to apply Banixx with a cotton ball or sterile gauze pad. After a while, you may be able to apply the spray directly but only with the gentle setting on the sprayer. Depending upon the wound area, size, and location, drawing up Banixx in a small syringe (no needle, of course) and using the syringe to apply Banixx may be a practical option. Do not mix Banixx with other products, when you treat your cat as this will lessen the effect of Banixx. Once applied, just let Banixx work its wonders on your cat! Banixx stays "active" for hours, so there is no requirement to wipe it off. If your cat is really fussy or scared, be creative! Have a small supply of her favorite treats or dry cat food handy as bait and as a reward. More things are accomplished with softness and kindness rather than force when it comes to cats!
Most wounds and punctures should be cleaned 2 to 3 times a day for optimal healing and reducing the chance of infection. It is essential to keep the wound edges clean as well as the wound. If you think you will only get one chance at getting the injury clean, go ahead and clean/treat it with Banixx Pet Care Spray.
If the wound is in a place where your cat cannot lick it, you may also apply a coat of the Banixx Wound Care Cream that sets up as an invisible, medicated band-aid. It is preferred that your cat does not lick the cream application since a cat’s system does not synthesize chlorhexidine well. As for the spray, it's easily tolerated by your cat if she should lick it, however, a thought, if your cat is licking OFF the spray, then the spray has no opportunity to do its magic!!
Our spray is non-toxic to your cat and has no added color, so it will not stain his fur or your furniture! Nor is it sticky; hence there will be no tacky residue on your cat, furniture, or carpet. Additionally, it will not damage healthy tissues, while healing all types of wounds.
Cats can be particularly difficult to treat so we have some suggestions on safely and calmly restraining your cat for treatments. These steps also work well to administer oral medication to a cat. For many, having a calm, confident person as a helper can be the key. However, for some cats, this will put them into high alert status and make the project more difficult. You’ll have to experiment with your cat to recognize which way is best for the two of you. It’s a good idea to do a little dress rehearsal and experiment with this when actual restraint is Not Needed. An easy way to restrain is by using a large towel to wrap him and his claws safely and gently inside. Exact positioning will depend upon the area on your cat that needs treatment. Follow these steps and adjust accordingly:
Lay a large towel out on a flat surface and place your cat on the towel. Wrap the towel over your cat by gently wrapping one side of the towel over the cat and then wrap the other side over the first side. It’s similar to making a burrito! Take care not to put excessive pressure on limbs and other sensitive areas. If you need access to your cat's head or neck, then leave his head out of the wrapped towel; if you need access to the back of the cat, you may want to wrap a fold carefully over your cat's head. The towel will hold your cat safely while keeping you safe from claws and teeth. If the area to treat is on your cat's body, a towel wrapping his upper body and another towel wrapping the hind legs should keep everyone safe.
We might suggest that you practice the restraint method on an inanimate object before applying the steps to your cat. Your cat is very likely to make the process much more complicated than it seems. Having your steps down/practiced will make this less stressful and safe for you and your kitty.

Banixx is easy to apply (many options – spray, dab, pour, etc.). Also, Banixx is temperature tolerant and does not sting or damage healthy tissues.
"I brag on Banixx all the time and it just occurred to me I should brag to y'all. Our cat, Beast, was 13 weeks old when he tried to steal a treat from our Newfoundland. He was bit in the head and had a laceration from his forehead down to his left nostril. The vet gave us medication for the eye which was squished and I sprayed the eye and wound 2 or 3 times a day with Banixx. I've had other black pets and anytime they get an Injury the area is covered in white scar hair. Banixx helped Beast heal so well he only has 3 scar hairs from a tooth cut that ran the length of his head."Amanda W., Facebook
