How to Dilute Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide for Treating a Cat


As much as you want nothing to happen to your cat, unfortunately, things will occur. Specifically, a cat will probably get into fights, or hurt, unless it's an indoor cat. When this happens, it's important to clean the wounds, so infection doesn't set in, and hydrogen peroxide will help get rid of any nasty germs in the wound. However, it will need to be diluted, since if it's too strong, it can damage the tissue inside the wound.

Things You'll Need

  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Container (with a spout is good, for administering later)
  • Water


Measure out how much hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) you need. For the sake of this How To, I'm going to say one cup.

Measure out the same amount of water; one cup.

Pour the two into a single container; if you have one with a spout, it will help with administering it.

Tips & Warnings

  • Let the H2O2 soak into the wound until it stops fizzing, then wash out with water.
  • Only use pure H2O2 for the first washing out of a wound, since it will kill cells. After the first wash, switch to the diluted mixture.
