Is it okay to use lidocaine topical cream on a pet?
I would ask my vet but his office is closed right now and won't open until Monday. My cat seems to have cut her paw. One of her toes is almost split into half. I did see some blood but it's not bleeding right now.
I washed her paw with lukewarm water and cleaned it with an antiseptic. But she looks like she's in pain, she won't step on that paw. Can I apply some topical lidocaine on it to ease her pain?
Will it harm her? I know it won't be good if she ingests it but I will watch her and make sure she doesn't lick any of it. I just want to make her feel better until we can go to the vet.
