I took my cat to a groomer because she had horrible mats that I just couldn't work out on my own. I didn't want to cut it myself because she's terrified of clippers, and I've heard you should never use scissors.
Unfortunately the groomer had a new person do her clipping and she did use scissors to try to get a mat out. She ended up cutting my cat's skin.
It didn't bleed, it doesn't seem to be getting any bigger, and she's not messing with it. She's up moving around and getting snuggles like normal. There's also no redness or swelling, and there's no odor. I cleaned it, put antibiotic ointment on it (and rigged up a bandage so she couldn't lick the ointment), then put pressure on it for a while just in case.
I am obviously going to keep an eye on her to make sure she's okay. There's no emergency vet here, and the closest one is about an hour away. The roads have also been closed off and on due to snow. Is this something that can wait until I can get her in, or should I try to make the trip? Is there anything else I need to be doing that I haven't done? Anything else I need to watch for?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
