Hi aan almal,

Ek wil net graag weet kan ek Detol of Savlon gebruik op my diere om seertjies te ontsment??? Ek verdun dit natuurlik met water en sit net n bietjie op. Kan dit skade doen??

Dankie vir n puik forum en vir die wat wel raad gee, "en nie beledig nie"

In verdunde vorm en net aan wonde of seerplekkies gesmeer (nie die hele liggaam nie), is die produkte veilig.

It's not really necessary to be too paranoid about little nips and scratches - dogs and cats are actually quite good as keeping things clean themselves. Just watch them for signs of swelling.

Apart from savlon and dettol, I've used Betadine liquid - that's the yellow stuff they paint on you before surgery. It looks like a major stain, but comes off easily with water. Also, for little minor things that do get infected, a tube of Prenine ointment is always useful to have around.

Excuse my ignorance, can speak Afrikaans fluently but wouldn't dare embarrass myself by trying to write it!

i have a similar problem with my dogs and cat, one of them nipped the cat on the ear and it turned into a major absess which I only noticed at about 21:00 at night.

Luckily as I touched it most of the goo came out but he let me clean it with diluted dettol that night and the next morning, when i got home from work that night there was no sign of anything.

Hi Corne,

Ek het n pug n jack russel en 3 katte. Dit is meer vir my katte die een is altyd in n fight betrokke, dan wil ek dit ontsmet, sodat dit nie sweer nie. Die ander kat en jack russel speel en dan maak sy die kat seer soos sy haar rond trek, (maar dit is nie aspris nie) hulle speel maar net... So nou is daar n seertjie op haar skouer en dan krap sy haar ook as sy haar was. Nou wil ek dit gebruik dan dit skoon bly, en gesond raak.

Dankie clyde

Nie een van die twee kan skade doen nie, solank dit verdun is.
Watse soort "diertjies" het jy en van watter tipe "seertjies" praat jy?
