    Tigger has just came in and trailed blood all over the house, had a look and it looks like he's skinned his pad and there's a little flap of skin, should i do anything? I've took some kitchen roll and held it to his paw to stop the blood and he's started to lick it, but doesn't seem too bothered about it, no limping etc.

    Depending how big the flap is maybe get a vet to wrap it up or clean it. My girl had an infection in her paw from cutting it in the sink so just watch for that. :)

    It's not t big, just the corner of his pad, just tried to wrap it up there for him but he was having none of it, and he's just licking it now and again. Will keep an eye out for infection.
