Skin Inflammation of the Paws in Cats

Treatment

 

Treatment is generally done on an outpatient basis, and can include foot soaks, hot packing, bandaging, and a hypoallergenic diet. In the event that there is a more serious underlying medical condition, that cat's symptoms will be treated first.

 

Living and Management

 

Maintaining healthy habits for the cat will help the medical condition from recurring.

 

Prevention

 

Good breeding practices and frequent medical checkups can prevent the recurrence of the condition. However, if the inflammation is occurring because of an allergen, removing it from the cat's environment is recommended.
