Hello, this is my first time posting and i was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to help?
My sister's guinea pig went wild and bit my 4 month old cat. She is bleeding on her front paw. I didn't know what to do so I poured peroxide on the wound and it bubbled up. She started licking it and she used the litter box. I need to take her to the vet but I can't until tomorrow afternoon. Any advice on what I can do to treat the wound? Thank you so much,

Rachel

Rinse it with soap and water and put some antibiotic cream (neosporin) on it, try to make sure the cat doesn't like the cream off. Hydrogen peroxide isn't very good in wounds, it kills the tissue. Soap and water are better.
