Krazy Glue for Wound Repair?

December 28th, 2020 at 9:29 am EDT
Hello Friend,

Welcome to Monday.  I hope that your Christmas, and current Holiday break ( if you have one) is going well..

Mine has been somewhat's not quite the same this 2020...I am hoping you and your family (furry or not!) are doing OK

Before I get into the newsletter, I should mention that I have a 
NEW Krill Oil supplement...

It's been working very well for dogs and cats with dry, itchy skin and dandruff

It's here

So Christmas arrived in our house :-)
But this is what I did to myself with one of the presents .. :-(

Super Glue for Wound repair

What the?

So my son decides to give us some NEW knives for Christmas..


They are Sooo sharp..OK

Be safe he says

Of course.. I worked with scalpels daily.. was able to keep all my digits

Yesterday as I am carving up the turkey to turn it into Turkey Soup...not really paying attention.. a slip... and 

BLOOD pumping out of my thumb..

Yikes..  the kid was right

Lots of pressure

Bleeding slows down, but as soon as I moved my hand it was pumping again..

Not *really* feeling like suturing myself


KRAZY Glue to the rescue

I cleaned the wound with a chlorhexidine flush ( from the first aid kit)

Applied to drops of the glue

Held the edges of the wound together.. and BAM

Bleeding stopped!

I used this often in veterinary practice...a small wound that didn't really need a suture..

Yes we have a 'special' veterinary glue, but in truth it is very similar to the regular old Krazy Glue

Turns out this has been is a Brazilian study

An. Bras. Dermatol. vol.87 no.2 Rio de Janeiro Mar./Apr. 2012

Repair of cutaneous wounds with the use of low cost surgical glue*


BACKGROUND: The advantages of the cyanoacrylates in cutaneous synthesis have been often demonstrated in the literature. 

However, these products have been underutilized in Brazil due to the high costs of the 2-octil-cyanoacrylate. Besides, few studies have been done with the more economically accessible form, the 2-etil-cyanoacrylate,( ie Krazy Glue) as a cutaneous tissue adhesive.

CONCLUSION: The use of 2-etil-cyanoacrylate was shown to be safe and with satisfactory cosmetic results in this group of patients.

Heal Your Pet At Home!

Best Wishes,

Dr Andrew Jones, DVM
P.S. It's a great idea to have some of this glue on hand as part of your Pet First Aid Kit.. and I am feeling better :-)
