Duration: 1 to 2 quarter moons
Treatment:
  • Keep the abrasion clean
  • Treat with Herbs that promote clotting & clean healing
  • Rest the wounded area until good scabbing forms (usually 1-2 days following injury)
Residual Effects:

Pain to the wound area for a quarter moon.

Complications:

Infections are common due to the length of time healing takes.

Severe Cases
Details:

Severe abrasions scrap away completely the layer of skin and fur to reveal and even damage the muscle and flesh that lies beneath.

Duration: 1 to 2 moons
Treatment:
  • Remove any debris from the wound
  • Keep the abrasion clean
  • Treat with Herbs that promote clotting & clean healing
  • Rest the wounded area until good scabbing forms (usually 1-2 quarter moons following injury)
  • After scabbing forms take care in returning to use, avoiding breaking the scabs and reopening the wound.
Residual Effects:

Pain to the wound area for 1-2 quarter moons.

Complications:

Infections are likely due to the length of time healing takes.
Limbs may be permanently weakened by the muscle damage.
