How Pets Get Wounded
Pets can get wounded from any hourly activity, from adventuring and hunting - some of the riskier activities - to carpentry and sewing.
Pets get far fewer wounds from indoorsy activities, and the wounds they do suffer from these tend to be lighter.
The Effects of Wounds
Rest assured: your wounded pet is not at risk of dying!
A wound reduces a pet's skills, and a wounded pet may spend time resting up rather than doing anything else.
Wounds heal naturally over time, and pets that rest up heal their wounds even faster.
You can also equip your pet with bandaging items such as Mummy Wrap to speed the healing the process. Finally, giving a pet medicines such as Diluted Medicine can heal a wound significantly, and increases a pet's affection toward you.
