Hello, I recently discovered a cyst like wound on my cats left foreleg today.. I believe the cyst has been opened as their appears to be a small opening where there is some blood colored ooze within. I cleaned the wound but when attempting to bandage it with gauze and bandage tape, my cat retracted her arm and moaned whenever I would attempt to apply the bandage, as if any pressure on the wound hurt her.
I would also like to note that before I noticed this wound, my cat appeared to have a sprain injury accompanied by some swelling on the same foreleg only 1 week ago. She would limp on her left foreleg but she was able to apply some pressure on it when walking, so I assumed it was a sprain, not a fracture. After a couple of weeks, she appeared to be walking mostly normal with little to no perceivable swelling. Now, following this injury I suspect it is something completely different. Please, if anyone could provide some insight on what the injury could be, I would be very grateful!
