Big blood blister on cats under chin
It just popped and I don't know what to do... HELP PLEASE.
You have to clean the wound with an antiseptic solution or plain water and gauze(not cotton pads which leave fibers). The wound is small so you can use an antibacterial soap, rinse well.
Then all you have to do after you have dried the area is put a little antibiotic ointment on it (something like Neosporin is safe for cats). You may have to place an Elizabethan collar (looks like a lampshade)on your cat so that it can't get at the wound and take off the Neosporin.
Keep an eye on the wound for a few days to make sure that there is no infection. It should be cleared up and forming a small scab.
If your cat won't let you clean the area then wrap the cat in a towel with just the head out. This holds the paws firm and the cat can't move much.
Good luck with your cat.
