Q. The front right outside leg is showing some bone and is bleading with white puss. Can't walk on that paw at all.

Answered By

A. This sounds like a pretty serious injury which requires immediate medical attention. Exposed bone and flesh is at a high Risk of infection, and Pus indicates it is showing signs. This cat needs to be examined, have the wounds treated, cleaned and bandaged, a round of antibiotics and pain killers. Please have her seen by a vet right away
