Preparedness Tips: Cat Paw Cuts

Cats may occasionally get laceration injuries to their paw pads from gravel, glass, wire, tree limbs & foreign bodies. It is important to seek veterinary care to prevent further damage.
Symptoms
Licking at Paw
Wound
Difficulty Walking
Pink Flesh
Bleeding
Discomfort
Laceration
Steps
Muzzle your pet because they might bite you if they are in pain
Put a gauze pad against the wound and slip a cotton sock over the foot
Tape a plastic bag over the sock
Once the bleeding has stopped use blunt scissors to trim the fur around the wound
Wash the cut with mild soap and water then pat dry with a clean, soft cloth
Apply Neosporin or Bactine to help prevent infection
Watch for swelling, fever, or discharge which would indicate an infection
If bleeding continues or the cut appears deep call your veterinarian immediately
Provide direct pressure on the wound as you drive to the Vet’s office
Warnings
If your cat goes outside make sure to cover the injury with a temporary bandage and then remove it within a couple hours
Never apply an ice pack directly to the wound
Tips
The paw has huge concentrations of blood vessels and they may bleed a lot
The wound heals better when left to open air
