Guide to healing wound using natural solutions

As pet owners, it's not uncommon to find ourselves dealing with wounds and injuries. Whether it's a scratch from a tree branch, a cut from a sharp object, or a bite from another animal, pet wounds can be distressing and difficult to manage. But did you know that there is a natural, safe, and effective solution for healing pet wounds? That solution is HOCL® 

HOCL® is a naturally occurring molecule that is produced by white blood cells in the body's immune system. It is a disinfectant and wound healer that has been used for over a century to sanitize wounds and medical equipment. HOCL is created by combining water, salt, and a small electrical current to produce a solution that is safe and non-toxic. 

One of the most significant advantages of HOCL is its ability to promote rapid healing. When applied to a wound HOCL promotes the growth of new tissue and accelerates the healing process by stimulating the growth and proliferation of cells involved in wound healing. Furthermore, it also has been shown to reduce inflammation and pain, making it an excellent choice for soothing irritated and painful wounds. 

In addition to its healing properties, HOCL is a powerful antimicrobial agent. Which kills a broad range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This is especially important for pet wounds, as infections can quickly develop and cause serious health problems. HOCL helps to prevent infection and creates a clean and healthy environment for the wound to heal. 

Another benefit of using HOCL for pet wound care is its versatility. HOCL® for Pet solutions come in a direct mist, making it easy to apply to different types of wounds. Additionally, HOCL is safe for pets to lick and ingest, which is essential for wounds in areas that are difficult to prevent pets from licking. 

When it comes to using hypochlorous acid for pet wound care, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First and foremost, it's essential to choose an HOCL solution that is specifically formulated for pets. While HOCL is generally safe and non-toxic, there can be differences in concentration and formulation that may make some solutions more suitable for pets than others. 

It's also important to follow the instructions carefully when using HOCL on your pet's wounds. Typically, this involves cleaning the wound thoroughly, applying the HOCL solution, and then covering the wound with a bandage or dressing. Additionally, it's a good idea to monitor the wound carefully and contact your veterinarian if you notice any signs of infection or if the wound is not healing as expected. 


  1. Wash - before touching anything, wash your hands with an antibacterial hand wash to ensure you are germ-free, otherwise bacteria can spread and cause the animal to incur an infection. 
  2. Check – have a look closely at the wound, and make sure it isn’t excessively still bleeding or that it doesn’t have anything stuck in it that will need removing. 
  3. Calm – be calm and ensure that the animal is as calm as possible, fidgeting and fussing may cause further tearing of the wound. Distraction with a treat or lots of encouragement always helps. 
  4. Clean – wipe away any excess blood or debris that may have stuck around the affected area. Be gentle as the animal may be in a little discomfort.  
  5. Treat – Spray with wound care solution, around 2-3 sprays at around 10cm from the affected area, and leave to soak in for 2-3 minutes. Try to avoid the animal from licking the area during this time to allow the solution to get to work. 
  6. Cover or rest – if the wounded area is bigger than a 50-pence piece, you may need to cover it with a bandage. This will need to be changed regularly. If you are not quite sure, seek advice from a veterinary practitioner.   
  7. Observe – check the area regularly to make sure there is no blood build-up, debris, or potential infection occurring. 
  8. Spray – keep spraying the affected area 2-3 times daily until the wound is healed.  
  9. Healed – give up to a week of repeating the above steps and you should see a drastic difference in condition, appearance, and health. 
  10. Maintain - once healed, check the area to make sure there are no imperfections and try to keep out of direct sunlight as the new skin may be more sensitive. Keep spraying the wound care solution for a week or two after the healing process is finished to maintain the hydration of the new skin. 


Below is some additional information as to the four stages of the healing process that your pet’s wound goes through before this becoming fully healed. 

  1. Inflammation - begins immediately after the wound appears, triggering blood clot formation and blood vessel constriction to limit blood loss. The immune system responds to the wound during this stage. 
  2. Debridement - occurs a few hours later as wound fluid, dead tissue, and immune cells form pus and flow out of the wound, removing debris. The immune cells work to clean the area. 
  3. Repair - after a few days, collagen fills the wound and broken tissue, creating new skin cells. Granulation tissue forms at the wound edge, filling the wound and undergoing wound contraction to allow new skin to cover it. This process can take several weeks. 
  4. Maturation - the final stage, which can take up to a couple of weeks, depending on age, immune system, and skin type. Scarring occurs, improving over time, and the new skin reaches about 80% of its original strength. 

So, in summary, hypochlorous acid is a natural, safe, and effective solution for healing pet wounds. Its ability to promote rapid healing, kill harmful bacteria, and provide soothing relief makes it an excellent choice for pet owners looking for a natural and non-toxic wound care solution.
