Most cats including the British Longhair like to pounce, prowl, and crawl around in close, tight spaces. Both indoor and outdoor cats tend to enjoy a good play time even if it’s short. Sometimes their playtime can turn into rough housing though and they may get a minor cut or scrape. If this happens to British Longhair, check to see if the cut is deep or just a scratch. 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 White Rock, TX.
