My cat got in a scrap with my Australian Shepherd and she won’t stop scratching her scab. Every time it’s almost healed she scratches until it starts bleeding again. We tried using syptic powder and gel to help it heal and we got her a cone but it can only be left on for so long as it seems to make every day tasks difficult for her. We tried putting caps on her claws but she just takes them off. Now she’s starting to scratch a spot on her back raw. She’s my first cat and im clueless on how to help her. I can’t afford another vet bill. She was a stray who followed my man and I home from the mail box. She stayed outside our apartment for four days before actually coming inside. We’ve had her shots done and due to a recent severe pyometra diagnosis she has been spayed. Can someone tell me how to help her stop scratching?

Hi Linda,

Has the scratching improved? Unfortunately, I really don't have any suggestions about what to do, other than the cone. There are some that are apparently less rigid than the typical one, and that might make things more comfortable for your kitty until the skin has a chance to heal. Even if it's not comfortable, I think you need to keep the cone on her to minimize the risk of infection.
