Skin Problems in Cats

Hotspot treatment:

If possible, gently clip hair from hotspot area. Gently cleanse with cool water by soaking area for 5 to 20 minutes with a very wet washcloth or towel, or soak a limb in a bowl or bucket or basin. Pat dry. Most of the oozy green or yellow stuff should come off with the soaks. Repeat cleaning as necessary to keep area clean. Apply a thin film of hydrocortisone OINTMENT to area 3 times daily and distract animal afterwards. Call if not improving soon.
