Open Wound
Hello, my cat is about 17 yrs old, inside only cat, she has a large open wound on her neck that wont go away and seems to be getting bigger. I would love to take her to the vet, i know thats probally what needs to be done soon, but i have no income right now and was wondering if there was anything i could do for her? I have tryed the cone thingy around her neck so she counl'nt lick it, but that made it worse. I've tryed to bandage it up and put like neosporin on it, that made it worse. She is in no pain that i can tell. Any ideas? Thanks much for the help.

If it's infected, it will need antibiotics. Usually these wounds close up on there own, but her body needs thee chance to get on top of it.

Is there any sort of low income clinic in the area? (try google). I can't say more without seeing/knowing the nature of the wound.

(The other problem is a neck wound that won't close can indicate something more serious like an infected gland. Then you definitely need antibiotics, as treating the wound itself won't get you anywhere.)

I agree with Savas and considering the age of the cat an antibiotic is a must, ring some vets and explain your financial situation, they may just charge you a few dollars for the injection only.
