Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.
Where on her body is the wound? What have you tried so far to treat it?
Okay thank you
The first thing you will need to do is to buy a collar to prevent her from licking.
At petsmart I have seen the cone type collar as well as inner tube collar that you inflate around the neck.
www.bitenot.com is another good collar to prevent licking.
She will need to wear the collar for about 10-14 days.
The wound is going to itch as it heals.
Mix neosporin and hydrocortisone cream 50:50
Apply that to the area twice a day until healed to help fight infection and for itching.
Just to let you know when you first put the collar on a cat they commonly have a meltdown or a tantrum for a few hours. Then they usually stop. So keep it on her.
The neosporin and hydrocortisone are not toxic if she happens to get some in her mouth.
Does that plan make sense to you? Do you have any other questions for me?
