The different types of wounds


Cuts are the wounds that heal best. Their edges are clean-cut and they most often remain relatively clean. Depending on their length, depth or location, cuts may require stitches(?) (binding two edges of a wound using a thread).




There are different types of burns: resulting from heat, cold, electricity, chemicals or friction. It is important to keep in mind that a burn, regardless of its origin, evolves during 30 minutes after the event. This is why it must be attended as soon as possible. Depending on its severity, a burn can of course become infected but most importantly it can lead to significant general health concerns (such as respiratory issues or a state of shock). Burns by friction, also called abrasion, are generally dirty.



An abscess is the accumulation of pus in a pocket. It is frequently caused by narrow and deep wounds: germs enter the near invisible wound. Skin closes and traps the germs, which in turn flourish. Bites, scratches, stings and spikelets can cause abscesses.




Wounds from licking are often hard to handle because they result from grooming, especially given that cats have a rough tongue! You need to find the cause. Your companion may be licking that zone in a frenetic manner for a number of reasons: external pests, Malassezia, fungi, pain, anxiety etc.
