My cat had a large tuma removed from her back thigh in September which was cancer. Now she has an open wound because the skin around the wound is dead and won't hold stiches all she does is lay around and don't eat or drink she is 15 years old.Is it anything I can do for her I had her for 15 years and it just hurt me to see her like this is it liquid pain medicine she can take and anything to be done about her wound.
Hi, I am sorry to hear about your kitty and understand how upsetting this is to you-wanting to help and not knowing how to fix it! = ( I've never had to deal w/ something like this before. What has your vet suggested? This is what I would do-I'd put lots of antibiotic ointment on the wound and wrap it and to prevent your cat from pulling off the bandage I would use an E-collar. You definitely don't want this wound to get infected!
I DO have a suggestion for your cat's lack of appetite-ask your vet to prescribe an appetite stimulant. My cat is on one and it works great. Worked within 15 minutes!!
I hope these suggestions have helped you and I'm sorry that I didn't see your post yesterday. Please come back with an update and let me know how your kitty is doing!
Are you able to take her back to the vet? They should take a look at the wound. Try to avoid infection in that area. You could put Hydrogen Peroxide. I've done this with my kitties and it has worked pretty good. Just don't let her lick it. I'm not sure if you should cover that area to aid healing. I'd take her to the vet. She must be in pain if she doesn't even wish to eat.
