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.
Sorry to hear of this situation with your cat. Thanks for the information. Could you send a picture of the injured footpad? Unfortunately pad injuries can be very slow to heal depending on the nature of the injury. If te lesion is not infected then time, rest and pain relief may well be the best way forward. Sometimes surgical devridement may be needed. If it is infected then antibiotics may also be required.
If the lesion is not healing as expected then testing doe concurrent conditions which may inhibit healing such as FIV or FeLV viruses may also be a consideration.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice. I would be haply to look at at photo of the pad as well if you can get one. Best wishes.
Thanks for the picture, but I'm afraid it is so blurred I cannot see anything. If you could send a clearer one?
OK thanks for that. It looks like the lesion seems to be healing (although hard to be sure as I didn't see it initially). I think rest, pain relief and potentially antibiotics is the appropriate course of action here. Best wishes.
