Treating Minor Cuts on Cats
Have you ever had your cat come in from the outdoors with a minor scrape or cut? Cats tend to get themselves in pretty tight situations while exploring or on the hunt. If your cat has a minor cut or scrape then you may not need to take her to the vet. Call your vet and explain what has happened. Your vet will most likely be able to walk you through some things to do to treat the minor cut. For instance, first, if the area is bleeding, cover it with a cloth or bandage to stop the bleeding. Next, wash the wound with a warm cloth, soap and water or a pet wound cleanser like Vetericyn. You may also need to apply a topical anti-bacterial ointment like Neosporin one or two times a day until the wound is healed. Even though it’s not deep or large, make sure you call your best animal hospital Washington DC.
