My cat has a torn pad on his back paw. It does not bleed or hurt him, but it reveals the flesh. I put vaseline (petrolium jelly) on to protect the pad, but my cat licks it off as fast as i put it on. Do you have any suggestions?
We just took him to the vet. He has to wear an Elizabethan collar and has a bandage on his foot. He is very miserable. He is now on antibiotics and it turned out that he split his pad. He will be fine but he has to keep the collar on for 10 days.
