Cat ran over stove

Hi there,

My one year old short haired house cat ran over a stove and has burned his front left paw. I took a look at it and some of the skin seems to have broken, and I can see some reddish pink flesh underneath... should i put some bactroban on it and try to bandage it up (my guess is that he''ll just pull it off), or should i take him to the vet, just leave it to heal etc..

thanks for your help!

Dear Natalie

You can put bactroban on twice daily and see how things go, should heal without a problem

shame. poor thing,
i guess you can put bactroban on, but dont just leave it like that, dont want him to loose his paw... or take him to vet, he can help you.
