Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you attach a picture of the bleeding toe?
It has posted. The best approach will be to put Bella in a small area for the evening where she cannot jump and placing an e-collar on her so that she cannot groom this area. Your vet by tomorrow morning will need to clean this area. In some cases, vets will reglue/suture the area and place her on antibiotics.Do you have an e-collar at home?
I would contact them tomorrow morning. Prevent her from digging any further, if at all possible. With the rate it appears that she is bleeding currently, so long as she does not continue to injure the area by digging or cause injury by licking, she shouldn't bleed too much overnight.
Typically this area is washed with chlorhexidine and closed with derma bond. That said, be cautious to not clean this area at home or you may dislodge the glue from the other toes and cause more bleeding/risk of infection.I would call them in the morning for more guidance.
Excellent. Keep me posted if you need more help.
