Bleeding Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Last night before we were going to bed we noticed Eb bleeding. Upon further inspection we noticed it was was coming from one of her rear paws. She didn't seem too upset about it, and it wasn't bleed profusely so we just left her. But I have no idea why or how she got cut. I also realiized that if it had been something serious I would've had no idea what to do. Is there a proper way to bandage a kitty wound?

Its always good to have some stop bleeding powder on hand. You can get it at Petsmart. It pretty much helps it clot and stop, especially if you have a crisis on your hands. Sometimes when they are chewing their nails they can hit the vain or have torn the pad a little. Its usually nothing major but always good just in case. Also just in case you cut the claw a little to short and it starts bleeding this powder will make the bleeding stop.

Bleeding on the pad, I use either septic powder or bag balm. You don't want to bandage it unless a vet does it usually. Just watch it for infection and if it is to bad then go to shredded paper in the litter pan for awhile so litter doesn't work up into the wound and cause a problem.

Thats it Styptic powder:
Stop Bleeding Styptic Powder

Always good to have on hand for emergency first aid.

Thanks. I'll have to pick some up when I go get more food at Petsmart tomorrow. Eb likes trimming her back nails on her own, so I'm pretty sure that's what she did. No concerns yet, but we're keeping our eye on her to make sure it doesn't happen again or get worse.
