Apply some Novisan, or some some of anti biotic, and wrap it with Co-flex or Vet wrap... but not too tight!

My cat lost it's claw and it did grow back. I am not sure if it just broke or if it lost it completely, but it is back the way it was.

If your cat is having a seizure you need to take the cat to a veterinarian, not ask online how to treat the seizures.

Nail Glue or Super Glue. If your fake nails came with nail glue use that, if not super glue because it is the same thing. Nail Glue=Super Glue (Just in a different package) -Lizzy (The Cat Lady)

David's cat fought him tooth and nail as he tried to get it into the cat basket to go to the vet's.

You treat your cat by taking him or her immediately in to be checked out by your Veterinarian. Do not attempt to try to treat the cat yourself. Antibiotics and an accurate diagnosis is needed and only a Veterinarian can do that.

Look up the Holt Cat company number in your area. You will definitely need a license plate number, probably the object that broke your windshield and a good description of what happened and where to get any compensation.

if another cat bites a cat it will get infected if dirt and germs get into it that's why you should treat the cat bite right away if your cat is an outdoor cat treat it right away and try to keep the cat inside as much as possible.

Yes you may treat a pregnant cat for worms. We did ours, you may want to consult a vet first depending on the breed of cat.

There is really no way to do this. You may have to try to treat this cat with help.

User Avatar

Never try and attempt to treat an animal with such a serious injury - you could cause even more damage. The best thing to do is to try and keep the cat as still as possible and keep it in the same position until a professional vet is able to look at the cat.

BROKEN OR BLEEDING NAIL BROKEN NAIL If the nail is not bleeding and is causing the dog or cat pain because it is in the way then it needs to be removed. Only remove it yourself it is loose and you feel comfortable doing so. You may need to have someone help you hold your pet or muzzle your dog. Grasp the broken nail with a pair of pliers and tug. If it does not come away easily then seek veterinary help. BLEEDING NAIL This can happen if your dog or cat tears the nail or if you have trimmed the nail too short. * Restrain your pet and elevate the affected limb above the body if possible by rolling your pet onto its back. * Apply a clean cloth against the nail. Cotton wool can be used in this circumstance as the fine fibres aid clotting. * An alternative is to drag the affected nail over a bar of soap to clog the nail and then apply the cloth to the nail. * Apply pressure for at least 5 minutes. Nails tend to bleed for long periods of time. Do not remove the pad until bleeding stops. * Apply a bandage if the nail tends to start bleeding as soon as the pad is removed or your pet is licking the paw excessively. * If bleeding does not stop in 15 minutes transport to your veterinarian. Continued bleeding may indicate a bleeding disorder and your pet may be in serious trouble. * There are also commercial products you can buy - I know of one called Qwik Stop that will halt the blood flow quickly. Alternatively, you can use cornstarch which will work too.

You can't. Mange is an infestation of external parasites, and the drugs used to treat these infestations have to be applied to the cat. If you can't catch it, you can't treat it.

First figure out where your rabbit got fleas and get the dog/cat that gave it to them away from your rabbit. Treat with cat flea powder.

Take it to a veterinarian. There is no way to treat this yourself safely.

Take it to the vet to check it for fleas and if it has fleas treat it with medication.

It is ideal to take the cat to the vet so the injury can be checked over. The vet will likely give the cat painkillers and prescribe a week's course of antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection and allow the injury to heal. Thankfully, cat claws grow back quickly, provided the nail bed has not been damaged too badly. Dipping the foot in cooled boiled salt water each day will also help keep the injury clean and again help prevent infection from developing.
