i dont know what my cat cut her nose on but she scraped the whole front of it. it looks red., and her nose is normaly a very pale pink. shes an indoor cat and only has indoor shots so i dont know if i need to worry about an infection she picked up outside on my patio or how i should try and clean it or if i should at all. she seems to be itching it on the furniture.what should i do?
<p>Roxie, thanks for using our service.</p><p> </p><p>It's difficult to treat wounds on the nose because cats constantly lick their nose and will remove any topical applications and will consume/inhale cleansers. I would recommend leaving this particular wound alone. It should scab over and heal on its own. If it's not notably improved by monday (with a scab, no bleeding) she will need to see your veterinarian. Oral antibiotics are always a wise choice to prevent infection. </p><p> </p><p>If my answer has helped you, please click accept. If not, reply.
