If you own a cat like the Russian Blue then you’re most likely familiar with the way cats like to prowl and spend their time outdoors. Your vet can tell you that it’s very common for cats to come into the house with cuts and scrapes from an adventurous day. If your Russian Blue comes in with a deep cut, call your vet right away. If it’s a minor cut that can be treated at home just follow these simple steps. 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 vet services Ellicott, MD.
