Cat put his paw on the hot stove top… he has little blisters that have come up
My cat put his paw on the hot stove top.. he has little blisters that have come up. I assume if I took him to the vet they would just wrap it up.. is there anything I can do? Or wait to see how it is tomorrow?
A hands-on examination from your local vet would be a great place to start and as soon as possible.
Typically, these patients need:
- Pain relief: veterinary prescribed and safe and appropriate for the individual patient
- Antibiotic cover: infection of burn wounds are common, and yes,
- Bandaging to protect the paws: the bandaging is more frequent initially, and less so as it heals.
If you’d like to chat in person, you can get a vet on a live video call or start a chat to discuss in more detail now.
