Herbs for Feline Hematoma

Yunnan Baiyao, in veterinary medicine is useful for (but not limited to) aural hematoma, internal and external bleeding tumors, sheared nails/hooves, surgical bleeds, epistaxis/nasal procedures, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, abdominal trauma, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) a condition in which small blood clots develop throughout the bloodstream, avian bumble foot, Von Willebrand's disease in dogs (VWD) abnormal bleeding, and/or thrombocytopenia patients - a deficiency of platelets in the blood, oral/dental surgery and spays in estrus.

It is truly one of the miracles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has a legendary reputation for immediately stopping internal or external bleeding. It also will relieve swelling and severe pain, while it disinfectants the wound. It is useful for treating blood stagnation caused by a trauma and should be in everyones first aid kit to help stop bleeding of cuts and wounds. It can be safely used on both dogs and cats (humans too). Yunnan Baiyao contains a type of ginseng that provides the highest concentration of hemostatic constituents among all seven ginseng types. It was used in emergency procedures during the Viet Nam war to stop bleeding from gunshot wounds.

Topical Application for aural hematoma in cats: Mix a small amount of the powder with just enough water to make a paste. Spread the paste over the affected area two times daily until it has improved. The herbal powder can be taken orally, used topically or both.

Oral Doses for Cats: To disperse blood clots under the skin (hematoma) give cats 1/4 to 1/2, #1 capsule of Yunnan Baiyao, twice daily. This is a very bitter tasting formula, so try and encapsulate the powder and pill orally (coat the capsule with a little butter) or use your imagination and mix the powder into something irresistibly tasty your cat would eat (vanilla yogurt with whipping cream on top, etc).

Herbal Compress

Hypericum (St. John's wort)

This is a wonderful, healing, antibacterial, anti-fungal herb for inflammation, pain and swelling.

Make an infusion by putting 2 rounded teaspoons of the dried herb in a cup, pour in 8 ounces of boiling water. Cover the cup and steep for 20 minutes. Strain and put in a glass jar with a lid and store it in the refrigerator. To maintain its medicinal properties it should be made fresh daily.

How to Do an Ear Compress for Cats:

Pour some tea into a bowl (refrigerate the remaining tea). Use a clean large cotton ball for each treatment. Dip the cotton in the cold hypericum tea. Squeeze out the excess until it has plenty of fluid in it but is not dripping. Apply the cool wet cotton ball over the hematoma in the cats ear. Dip the cotton in the cold liquid frequently. Do this for 15 minutes, 2 or three times daily. Discard the remaining tea.

To help the blood clot to disperse you can alternate the treatments by using warmed tea compresses for one treatment and then cold for the next.

Note: This can be used in conjunction with other treatments.


To prevent a hematoma make sure your pets ears are kept clean on a regular basis (how to make garlic ear oil for cleaning ears). This will eliminate the chance of infections and ear mites which cause head shaking and scratching which result in trauma to the ear and a hematoma to form.

If your pet does get a hematoma treat it immediately! The sooner you treat it the faster it will heal! Left untreated for days and waiting to see if it will go away will make it more difficult to cure by home treatment or veterinary care - which can take weeks and sometimes months. The longer it is allowed to swell the more it will increase the chances of your pet needing drainage or surgery.
