Treating Minor Cuts in your British Longhair Cat


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.
