All cats, but especially outdoor cats are susceptible to minor wounds such as burns, cuts, strains, and bruises. While these types of wounds are rarely a cause for major concern, it is important to treat the wound to prevent infection and further damage.

First, make sure your cat is suffering from only a minor injury. Recent wounds can usually be identified easily, so watch for the following signs:

  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Damaged or torn skin
  • Limping
  • Pain
  • Missing hair

Also, if you did not notice the wound when it was fresh, there may already be signs of infection such as:

  • Pus or other discharge from the wound
  • Abscesses
  • Fever
  • Unpleasant odour at the wound site

Regardless of the cause of your cat's wound, you should immediately treat the wound. Some cats will be resistant to treatment, so you may have no choice but to see the vet; but if your cat is cooperative, you should follow these steps:

  1. Stop the bleeding by applying direct pressure to the wound. You should first cover the wound with a clean cloth or sterile gauze, and then apply pressure until the bleeding stops (which may take up to 10 minutes).
  2. If there is no bleeding from the wound, you should try cleaning it. You can either apply an antiseptic spray to a cloth or directly to the wound, but take care as the treatment may sting on first application.
  3. For longer or deeper lacerations, clean along the edges of the cut, but take your cat to the veterinarian to have the wound flushed.
  4. Check for other wounds.

Whenever possible, you want to use a clean dressing on your cat's wound to prevent infection. While minor cuts and abrasions may not require veterinary care, all bite wounds and more serious injuries should always be examined by your cat's veterinarian.
