Hi All,
I noticed my cat not putting weight on her left paw every now and then. Today as I was I playing with her I was gently checking her paws and she growled and pulled paw. Upon further checking noticed it is infected..... I added 2 pics.

Went to the pet store to get zymox topical cream (ended up taking her with me because my sister was scared to “watch her” 😿... poor thing peed as I was at store, I had her in an over the shoulder.)

will the topical cream be enough? Got an e-collar and bandage....

I would appreciate any feedback from a few of you out there that have had these issues before. 🙏🏼
Thank you!

Anything in the meantime? I can’t get in to a vet until 4 more days.
Thanks
Please have her seen by your vet. Sometimes these can be more than a simple infection.

The topical antibiotic is probably the best you can do at home.
