Paw has cut in pad

One of my cats has a cut on his pad on his front paw. It bleeds every now and then and seems to be having hard time healing. It was ok but now after chasing my other cat around it has started bleeding again. Is there anything i can do to heal this quicker..

Bumper likes to bite his paws and the bleed and don't heal very well. My vet recommended wrapping the paws with normal moisturising lotion (or using baby booties) just to stop the cat eating the lotion.

Unless you can rub the lotion in well enough first. Also try to move/cover anything that they can cut their paws on. Bumps, for instance ould get itchy paws and would rub them on the heating vents in the floors - making his paws worse, we covered them and he couldn't get to them which helped a lot.

Possible diet problems include not enough fat or protein in the diet , or incorrect proportions of nutrients in food.
Please check the diet, you may have to upgrade.
Food allergy can also make paws itchy and uncomfortable, so you'll want to take a look at the food ingredients as well.

Baking soda dries out the skin, please be sure not to use cat litter with baking soda.

Depending on what kind of litter you are using, allergy to the litter itself is also a possibility.
