Can a sprained paw heal on its own without vet care? My cat had sprained her front left paw a week ago, and she won't let me apply an ice pack to it! Should I still take her to a vet? She had no symptom of shock, just not putting weight on it! She's eating normally and bumping on the bed and window sill!
If she is eating and doing everything else normally, then she will probably heal on her own. However, you can help her by putting a small ace bandage wrap around the paw...if she will let you. It may speed up the healing.
Like humans, sprains can be painful but heal in time. However, if it hasn't healed in another week or 10 days, then you might consider the vet visit.
