Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. You're through to Dr Chris, a Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.

OK the first thing we need to do here is cool the burn down, ideally under running water or otherwise into a shallow dish of cold water. We need to do this for at least 10 minutes. We then need to get her urgently to the vets to assess the burn and to administer pain relief and antibiotics.

Let me know how you get on.

I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
