hurt kitten...need info!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a kitten that has a sore on its leg. Is there something I can use at home to clean it so it will not get infected.

I'd try hydrogen peroxide as long as the wound isn't too big or deep.

I would say the peroxide also and depending on the wound maybe some antibiotic cream like neosporin(if its more of a sore. You might have to wrap it so the kitty won't bite at it.

It is about the size of a dime and it is without hair....just skin and it might be infected. I think my other kitten has bitten it bc it keeps licking the other kittens sore. I think the kitten may have vampire tendences. I tried to seperate them but they cry. What would you do?

If the skin looks red and irritated and has a bunch of flakes, it could be ringworm. Check out the 'older dog skin condition' thread.
