Hi Donna,

I am sorry your girl has this sore. Forget about the cone, it is very stressful. Just clip her claws. Then put preemie infant socks on her feet (taped at the top) to prevent scratching.

To heal the sore fast dab on honey. It is a remarkable healing agent.

Reapply it 3 times a day. It is safe if she ingests it.
