Bruised Nose?
Has anyone seen this before? It appears as if my cat's nose is bruised, but it almost looks like it is dried blood. He seems fine in every other way. We had to transport him the other day and while he was in the carrier in the car and was pressing his face up against the metal grate/door which at first i assumed this was from, but that was about 5 days ago now, and the bruise seems more visible than before.


Any help would be much appreciated :)

Thank you!

maybe try n clean the nose just in case its dirt or blood. could also be like when you get a bruise it take a while to show and it looks worse after a bit and then it gets better.
depending on the age of the cat maybe its more colouring on the nose.

I'm with rottysrule here. It should be going away if it's a bruise, but it will change colours... I'd likely wait a couple of days and then I'd call my vet if i was still concerned. what a cutie! :cat:

Thanks so much for the responses! It seemed to get a bit darker at first but today is much better. Thanks again for the help!
