About Cat Sores & Lesions:

Sores, lesions and wounds are some of the most common skincare issues for cats. Most lesions and sores are caused by the over-scratching of itchy skin (self-inflicted) or are a complication of an existing skin irregularity (ringworm, fleas, scabies, dermatitis, allergies.)

If your cat is left unattended for long periods of time, spends a lot of time outdoors, be diligent to check their skin daily for signs of irritation or lesions. Although you might think that a sore would be quite obvious, many sores are hidden by thick matted hair and can go unnoticed for days.

If the sore is ignored, your first visual clue may be that your pet is repeatedly scratching or rubbing the affected areas. Or, you may see reddish or brown staining of the surrounding hair, circular patches of baldness, raised tufts of hair, an overall dull coat, scaly skin, or excessive shedding. More serious tell-tale symptoms to watch out for are sudden drops in energy, appetite loss, or sluggish movement. These signify a spreading infection.

Cat sore treatment requires diligent cleaning throughout the healing process. Fast-acting Terrasil Wound Care guards against bacterial infection and reduces inflammation and soreness. The following chart highlights Terrasil Wound Care's unrivaled germ-fighting capability in comparison to the competition:

Caring for Your Cat's Sore:

If you suspect that your cat's wound is self-inflected, your first goal should be to restrict your pet’s access to the area by use of a cone. When a cat incessantly licks one area of the body (often the feet or legs), the area becomes, sequentially: increasingly itchy, red and inflamed, moist, infected, and ulcerated.

Always clean your hands thoroughly before handling your cat’s wound. If your cat is bleeding, take several pieces of gauze, or a clean towel, and apply pressure for a few minutes until the area is dry.

Then, begin to clean the affected area. Clip away any fur which is hiding the wound with a set of grooming clippers or a small pair of first aid scissors. This will give you greater access to the wound, and give dirt less places to hide as the wound heals.

Once the area is clipped, take a clean gauze or towel and soak it in an antibacterial solution, such as saline solution, hibitane or hydrogen peroxide. Or, wet the towel and rub it with a gentle soap. Use the towel or gauze to wipe away any dirt, debris or grass from the wound. Depending on the severity of the puncture, this may sting. So, you may want to have another household member restrain and soothe your cat during this process.

Gently pat the area dry with a towel. Use a topical (surface) skin protectant, such as Terrasil, to guard the skin against bacteria and keep the affected area clean. Terrasil will also relieve your cat’s inflammation and redness, and minimize uncomfortable skin-surface pressure. Afterwards, cover the area with a gauze and bandage, being mindful not to wrap the bandage too tightly and cut off circulation to the affected area.

In the following days, check the wound 2-3 times per day. Gently remove any scabs or dead skin that have formed, clean the area with soap and water, apply Terrasil ointment and apply a fresh clean bandage. Unless the wound is extremely large and deep, it can generally be left uncovered after 3 days.

In some cases, a pus-filled boil will develop as the puncture heals. Pus is a thick fluid produced by the body as it fights the bacterial infection. While these dead white skin cells are attacking the bacteria, they create a hardened lump on the skin. Do not be alarmed; although this boil or pustule may be unattractive, it is a sign that your cat’s body is fighting infection and trying to heal itself.

If you come in contact with draining pus, just wash your hands; this bacteria is only infectious to humans if it is exposed to any open wound on the owner’s skin.

During the Healing Process...

While your cat’s sore is healing, try to limit your pet's activity so that they are not further endangering the open skin sore. Also, if possible, limit or restrict their exposure the outdoors. Outdoor areas are be filled with irritating substances (dirt, grass, bacteria, fungus) that can infect your pet's wound and slow or compromise the healing process.

Try to provide your cat with balanced nutritious meals. Without proper nourishment, a pet's entire body, not just its skin and coat, will be continuously in a state of stress. Many types of dermatological problems can be avoided if your cat is consuming an optimum diet. If you are feeding your cat inexpensive commercial cat food, try upgrading to a meat or seafood-filled organic product.

And, of course, treat your cat with an extra dose of TLC (tender loving care) to help him or her heal more comfortably. Surround your cat with its favorite toys, pillows, etc.

Terrasil Wound Care: A Uniquely Effective Natural Formulation

Terrasil Wound Care Antiseptic Ointment is an advanced all-in-one wound treatment system in a jar. This powerful new FDA-registered formula combines the latest science with the finest organic and natural ingredients for superior results.



Terrasil Wound Care ointment features a powerful antiseptic (bacteria-fighting) ingredient, as well as a soothing skin protectant. Together, they form the ultimate barrier against infection, which is the biggest cause of delayed healing in wounds.


Terrasil is the only wound care product available that uses patented Activated Minerals, a unique blend of Volcanic Clay (Bentonite), Zinc Oxide and Magnesium Oxide. These powerful, nutrient-rich minerals support the natural production of new, healthy, clear skin. Bentonite absorbs impurities from damaged skin and supports restoration, while Magnesium Oxide boosts collagen synthesis. Zinc Oxide possesses anti-inflammatory and astringent (drying) properties; also essential to the healing process. Activated Minerals work harmoniously to begin repairing skin on contact for rapid relief and incredible results.
