My 9 month old cat recently had an abscess that burst on his side. I took him to the vet two days ago and he was put on amoxicillin. Today, right next to the burst abscess there is another abscess formed. There are not visible wounds so there is nowhere to drain from. He does not feel warm to touch on his nose or his ears. The vet is closed for two days and there are no emergency clinics near me. Please offer advice on how to help my Oliver.

IMO....the amoxi will do him just fine, at least for the next few days, it should decrease in size but if not than may need to be drained, but I think you are safe with the antibiotic and wait and see over the weekend.....good luck♥

I agree w/ Opus.  The amoxicillin will be enough.  Just keep your eye on it, like I know you are.  I would also call the vet just to keep them updated.

Please keep us posted and let us know how Oliver is doing.
