    Okay this time it's Waddles! I was holding her, and I looked at her legs and she has a red SMALL scab on her left leg. It didn't bleed, I just wanted to make sure it was going to be okay??? Is this something that will just go away like it does on humans???

    Thanks!

    it'll heal. if it starts to bleed, i always use corn starch as a blood stopper for if when im trimming their nails and accidently make them bleed. just put it on where ever its bleeding and it should stop. if its not bleedding itll be fine

    If it will help you sleep at night, put a tiny dab of triple antibiotic ointment on it.
