Thing is this, your cat may be in alot of pain, plus the wounds may NOT heal on their own. I worked for a vet for 8 years. Here is what you can try at home: give your cat 1/2 of a low dose aspirin (1/2 of 81 mg). This will ease his pain for THREE DAYS. Yes it takes that long for cas to metabolize aspirin, and it doesnt take much to do the job. NOTE: any dose higher that what i have described could be very harmful, be careful not to do this. Keep the area clean, and keep kitty in the house. Watch the wound for signs of festering, if the area feels too hot, if the inner part of his ears become red and hot (means he has a fever), or if he begins to pant. These are all reasons that kitty should go to the vet. Keep us updated. - Blu
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....I'm sorry Blu I have to intervene here, I can't believe any Vet would say aspirin is ok at anytime...
PLEASE Eric NEVER give aspirin at any dose to a cat....NOOOOOO.
toxic even at small doses...
I just read your initial post. I hear your poor kitty was bitten by another cat
on his back. You also mentioned that there was pus coming out of the
wound this indicates a serious infection. Please take your kitty to a vet
immediately. He may need antibiotics, special cream. Who knows?
That's why you should take him to a vet asap. Eve :)
your cat has had an abscess probably due to a bite that has got infected. It needs antibiotics urgently.
