Cat scratching scab off chin - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden
My cat had a broken jaw and had it wired shut. The vet took the wire out 10 days ago and it is healed nicely. In the last couple of days the cat has been scratching his chin and has scratched it open. It doesn't smell like it is infected but I wondered if there was something I could put on it to heal it more quickly and also something to clean it before it does infect.
