Hopefully there's an easy answer to this..

Ok my best friend told me this and I thought I would post this here to see what advice there is. Ok, she was sitting in a chair (while in her Pj's) and her dog jumped up on her and scratched her nipple and she about went through the roof. She asked me what to do. She said the pain was so bag that it just about took her breath away. Anyway, I asked her if it bled and she said a little bit it did. She was worried that she needed to see a Dr because somewhere she read that if the nipple area gets torn or scratched to where it breaks the skin, that a Dr. needed to be seen. I hadn't heard that so I am asking for advice here. I know that area is really sensitive, but I just don't know what to tell her. Any advice form anyone? Thanks much!

I think your friend just needs to clean the area and keep a watchful idea on the area for possible signs of infection.

I agree. My cat has done that to me before and nothing untoward happened. Just treated it like any other cat scratch.
