Bubba's paw is infected again. It seems to randomly come and go, and when it comes .. it STINKS Sick. Anything he touches with that paw stinks like it too. He's constantly licking at it, and it'll sometimes get to the point where he'll even start limping on it when he walks, and when he sits he'll hold it off the ground. I've snapped a few pix of it for reference; you can see it's around the top of his main paw pad, and the top of the pad is also a bit red (and possibly even a little swollen). Looks like it's too far down to be an overly-long claw. Not sure why or where he keeps getting this ... anyone have any tips to patch him all up? (Other than "take him to the vet", that's next on the agenda if home treatment doesn't help soon).

Re: My Cat's Paw is Infected - How To Cure It?

My cat has the same problem I believe. The first time we thought he had cut himself right along the top of his pad. We took him to the vet, got it cleaned out and got some antibiotics. However this has continued to happen to nearly every paw, in rotation. It is painful for him and he limps around because of it and is always cleaning it. We are taking him to the vet again on payday. Just wanted to see what you found about yours though. I know it's been about 3 years since you posted...but if you read this please let me know what you found Smile

Re: My Cat's Paw is Infected - How To Cure It?

The post is only a little over 6 months old, we don't display the thread dates here so that people aren't discouraged from posting on "old threads", like most forums like to do. I never really understood that line of thought. Smile

The vet said it wasn't any kind of infection, but probably some sort of allergic reaction or irritation, and just like when people get a rash from something like that and keep scratching at it which worsens it, cats do too, so it was getting that way. Possibly from something like floor cleaning chemicals (Swifter-like things), or maybe when the cat litter clumps up and the rocks in it get "sharp / pointy", or maybe lawn chemicals, etc. It still happens to Bubba, in fact right now it's on his right-rear foot. Haven't figured out the exact source of the issue yet, but apparently it's at least not an infection, so that's a little bit of a relief to know. Wink



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
