Pressure sores

Pressure sores can be extremely serious and, if not caught in time, can open right down to the bone. Prevention is the best answer. Proper bedding, regular bathing and the use of a pet wheelchair will also help prevent pressure sores.

Your Pet should be checked every day for pressure sores as they can be hidden underneath the hair; be particularly watchful with long-haired pets as the sores can be hidden in the coat. Check your pet's hips and elbows for sores if it has a tendency to lie on one side. If you pet does incur pressure sores, visit your veterinarian immediately. Your veterinarian will advise you on proper care of pressure sores.
