i guess you have to evaluate how big the scratch is? is it infected? or is he just sore and if its in his mouth you could call the vet and ask about baby abisol (Sp) to numb the pain

Any time you or your pet get scratched by a cat, you need to go to a Dr. Take your dog to the vet right away. This is not something to fool around with.

Cat scratches can be serious and infection is a special concern. I would take your dog to the vet just to be safe.
