Hi everyone my mum noticed a big stratch on my face yesterday which has got her worried. It seems like it has a scab on it and i let mum clean it but she is worried about infection. What should she do?

    Keep an eye on it. If it gets bad have mom take you to the vet. Hope it gets better! :D Miss Calli

    Yeah! I would keep an eye on it too. If it looks swollen, sore to touch or smells, see a vet. Also I would make sure the wound stays clean. Good luck. Also if there is any signs of puss, see a vet your\'ll need antibiotics. Have a nice day, Meow!

    My sister scratches my face when I don\'t leave her alone. I like to chase her around the house;). The scratches have always healed without any problem. Our vet gave my mommy a bottle of xenodine once for my brother Max. He told us that xenodine is great for scratches...like Neosporin for humans. Don\'t know if you can get xenodine at a pet store or from vets only. But if you ever get your hands on a bottle of xenodine, keep it because it\'ll last forever.
