I think my cat has Eosinophilic Granuloma of the lip (upper lip ulcer/sore). But I can't be certain. She has nothing else wrong, and her tongue is okay. We can't afford to take her to the vet, so I was wondering if there is a home treatment that could be given to her (I read that a cortisone treatment (shots) usually works if its simple). If its not available to do at home, is it really costly to get it done at the vet? I realize all vets are different.
I am sorry, but we don't have any miracle cures on this forum that can replace vet care. Why have an animal if you know you can't afford vet care? What will happen if your cat gets seriously ill with a life-threatening condition? Then what? Let him suffer and die?
I'm not asking for a miracle cure. I know what is wrong. I know the treatment. I'm asking if there's any way that I can do it myself. I apologize that I can't afford now to take my cat to the vet. But I'd rather have it at home than at the pound because I can't take to the vet, where it would be euthanized because its not a kitten. So get off your high horse and provide some kind of help or don't say anything at all. I don't need your scolding.
