My cat is having a paw injury and is not grounding that front right limb. I took him to the nearest veterinarian and first day with too much struggle he could administer an antibiotic injection. Next day again he tried the same but the cat has bitten me at multiple places. Its now very difficult to inspect her wound or inject her antibiotics. Is there any way that she could be tranquilized and be treated and there is any chances of rabies please suggest.

Being a provoked bit and as far as the cat is alive for next ten days, you can treat it as normal wound.
Hows your cat get injured, write it in details, if its history of dog bite or cat bite tn go for post bite vaccine. And traet it as a open wound.
Hello lybrate-user. I would suggest you to go for 3 rabies vaccine on day 0 as the day of bite, day 3 and day 7. Even if your cat has been vaccinated. Please don't take risk. And go for complete course if unvaccinated. You don't worry but. Secondly please ask your vet to give anesthesia to your cat for a proper wound dressing and related procedures.
Well, I think if your cat has been properly vaccinated and it doesn't have any history of cat or dog bite, I don't have to worry, but for a safe side you can get post bite vaccinated for u.
