Customer Question
My kitty jumped on...

My kitty jumped on the stove right after we finished cooking.. Hes got to burnt paws.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Burns are certainly painful. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the kitten's name?

Kronk

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kronk?

He’s a very healthy kitty other wise

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help with your concerns regarding Kronk.

How old is he?

How long ago did this happen?

How many paws are affected?

Are you able to send a photo?

Kronk is 4 months old , this happened roughly 2 hours ago, both back paws are affected, we have had him sit in cold water briefly to try and sooth any pain. His paws are very warm to touch and he seems very uncomfortable, not his playful self. I can’t get a picture just cuz he won’t stay still
Cat Vet: Dr. Denise, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Oh, poor little guy. Totally understandable that he won't allow a picture.

I'm glad you were able to use cool water. If he will allow a cool pack to be placed on his feet (maybe while he is swaddled in a towel or blanket) that can help as well.

I'm very concerned about his pain at this time, and if he might need treatment for the burns.

If you have an emergency vet in your area, I would recommend taking him in to be seen so that he can receive pain medication and treatment soon. Unfortunately, there is no safe over the counter pain medication that I can recommend for cats.

What Customers are Saying:

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
