Abscess after cat bite

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess after cat bite


592047 tn?1243389587 We rushed her straight to the vet who diagnosed an abscess from a cat fight our girl must have got herself into. And he also discovered she is pregnant, and is about 3 weeks along by the feel of things. The vet said he hopes her kittens aren't affected by this abscess / infection. Her temp was 40 degrees celcius also (which I was told is only slightly high for cats).
199954 tn?1294948269 Than you can use a topical ointment daily such as benzyl peroxide cream on the lesions after scrubbing then rinsing the lesions with a anti-bacterial soap (if the cat will allow you to). The same information goes for the other mother cat with a sore on the side of her face. She really cannot be treated until she has finished nursing. Her problem may be more serious. It could be a bite wound abscess, or other sore that is healing, or cancer or other problem.
Avatar f tn Most people do not know this, but you are more likely to get rabies from a cat bite than a dog bite. The reason why is simple -- people take precautions around dogs they do not know but do not as readily think of doing that for cats.
134578 tn?1546634665 Hi, thought I would post this although I alluded to it recently in another community, because it looks like a story not yet done. Our cat Sterling is formerly feral, beautiful (a silver tabby with a huge head) and a good outdoor cat.
Avatar m tn 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.
517872 tn?1562054308 I hope my question gets the attention of people who have good experiences in dealing with these situations and know exactly the kind of treatment without harming the male cat in any way The cat is also showing signs of malnutrition as it looks very skinny with bones pushing against the skin. A few months ago it was very fat and strong . I did notice signs of old age and lethargy like it was tring to tell me something a few months back.
587315 tn?1333556383 Possible causes are abdominal bleeding, organ rupture, or inflammation of the abdominal wall lining. Lumps, Bumps, Swelling - any local swelling of any size on your cat could be an abscess but it could also be a tumor (benign or malignant), cyst, insect bite, hematoma, fracture, or soft tissue trauma (sprain, pocket of fluid such as infected oil gland). Vet care should immediate. http://www.sniksnak.com/cathealth/vet.
Avatar f tn Its been 4 months and I am still not well-at all. I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.
Avatar f tn These wounds frequently result in an infection that can be quite debilitating, especially if left untreated. Bite wounds are more common in male cats than in females. However, when a cat bites another cat, his teeth go through the skin, and then he releases quickly. This results in small puncture wounds in the skin, with holes about the same diameter as the cat's teeth. These holes seal within hours, trapping bacteria from the cat's mouth under the skin of the victim.
Avatar f tn Maybe the title is not accurate, but I really don't know what's going on and I desperately need help. Some time ago my cat had a bad injury in one of his legs caused by another cat in a fight. When I took him to the vet they pointed out his kidneys where 2 and even 3 times bigger, which could be caused by an infection or a kidney issue. He received antibiotics and came home, his kidneys looked "normal" in a few days after the antibiotics and so we though it was okay.
Avatar m tn Are you saying that your abscess was caused by a spider bite? If that is the case read about the Brown Recluse Spider and their bite symptoms.
480448 tn?1426952138 And it may not take much to cause an abscess, but after reading that they are indoor/outdoor, a spider bite, or wasp bite might be an allergic reaction that you are seeing. My girls will eat anything crawling on the floor, beetles, june bugs, spiders, they just love bugs....Most times I see them eating something that I went to get a paper towel to remove from the floor, they are that fast at catching the bugs.
605060 tn?1220073997 My cat Blue who is a tom cat has a swollen front right arm. He shows no signs of bite marks or oozing. He was limping on it till I gave him tylenol. 24hrs later and its still swollen. What do you recomend??? PLEASE HELP!!
Avatar n tn This wound, I agree, does sound rather extreme. Usually after infection (say an abscess etc) has burst, it is best to keep the wound open and ensure it drains fully before healing takes place. Most often such wounds are left open to the air, but in certain cases need to be cleansed regularly. However in this case it sounds as if you need to keep in very close contact with your vet, and be aware of any changes, and take your dog back in ANY time you feel something is not right.
Avatar m tn Hi I have a cat and her name is Misty and she is 10 yrs old. A couple months back I noticed a wound and it looked like it was turning a little black, that was the first time noticing it because she is somewhat like a feral cat and lol does not like me very much sad to say, only likes my dad so it is hard for me to give her attention or get close to her cause everytime I do she runs away, therefore it is sometimes hard for me to notice when she is having medical issues.
740456 tn?1260453409 hey, i posted this is the cat forum too but i figure it's the same "treatment" for both dogs and cats so i'll give it a shot here. I'm watching my parents cats for the next little while, i was petting one of them and found a tick. I called my vet and she gave me an appointment for tonight and said i shouldnt worry about it.
Avatar f tn I did my research online this seems to be a gum infection and/or abscess of the tooth and very painful for the cat. I've never grabbed this cat, nor will it let me take it somewhere, it moves tries to escape doesn't like to be grabbed. Please tell me if there is something i could take, any antibiotic or pain killer or anti inflammation, anything. Unfortunately i have not much knowledge of medicine.
Avatar f tn The one that surprised me the most was due to a hematoma after a vasectomy. After the hematoma was surgically removed, my left testicle was fixed in the scrotum and no longer moved free. In certain positions it caused the testicle to get pinched or squeezed causing pain. A year later I lost the testicle due to a Strep B infection.
621465 tn?1221541188 I can feel a small malleable mass there, and at first figured it was an ingrown follicle, and waited for it to come to a head. It never did, it just mysteriously disappeared. During and after that I started smelling these mysterious smells... sometimes smelled like burnt dust, mold, vomit, or a smell I can not describe... but all of them were foul. They were not accompanied by a bad taste or any strange residue on my tongue (as sometimes a bad smell can come from the mouth).
Avatar n tn my 3 yr old had an enlarged yellow lower lip the first 2 vet visit were the same antibiotics steroids and a very large bill w/no relief for my pet he began to sound like he was having a hard time eating and drinking so i went to another vet she opened his mouth causing his to to pretrude and down his throat on the far bck side of his tongue was a growth she was sure it was cancerous so it had to be removed his lip began to clear a little but never really healed completely.
Avatar f tn My bosses wife has almost the same undiagnosed issues (after TWO colonoscopies and endoscopies, CAT Scans, Sonograms and multiple blood and urine tests) and she found that a diet of chicken and veg seemed to be the only thing she could eat.
Avatar f tn All my scans are showing as normal and I am on a course of clindamycin. I am told my incorrect bite after such poor orthodontics is causing the pain and next step is a splint and possibly more ortho wok. My gums and bone under and around the extraction are still so painful and I have terrible constant ear and throat pain.
Avatar f tn Pierson's website, read Pfizer's own foreign market results which state it has caused hemolytic anemia- I have also communicated with someone else whose cat developed hemolytic anemia and who passed away after 4 blood transfusions and I have read other accounts of anemic reactions. So this drug does cause anemia as well as many other severe effects. When Angie received Convenia she had what seemed to be a cold which wasn't going away, she didn't seem gravely ill at that point.
Avatar n tn My cat passed away just yesterday , he was in pain as an abscess or some infection had developed in his lower leg due to another cat's bite. He tried to tell me by mewing but i couldnt see the wound because of his fur. I knew he was in pain but even the vets couldnt figure it out. Alas my dad gave him poison by injecting it since he was in so much pain, we couldnt think of anything else.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was told the problems could be with the tooth/crown being too high making your bite off. After extensive internet searching I concluded I was having ligament pain and the Endo said yes that is what it is but offered no reason or solution. (He's another arrogant one. They do their job, it looks good on "paper" and they don't want to hear about problems you are having.) I would have your dentist check your bite and see if he thinks you need a new crown.
541150 tn?1306037443 I wish I could tell you all that everything resulted as planned. Abby has developed an abscess and they once again had to sedate him and take care of that. Doctors do not feel comfortable sending him home and will call me with an update tomorrow, Tuesday. He is stable and doing fine, they said. But then again they always say the same thing, and then call and tell me he is not healing. I wonder what the heck is going on with my cat. Why can't he heal already?
Avatar n tn This intensified and her temp was rising and she was vomiting and so I took her to a local ER where they immediately did a cat scan and lp which showed her WBC count at 416.They transferred her to Chicago where they did another MRI which showed the lesions from June either completely resolved or getting better but it showed 3 new lesions.They are baffled and thought that the diagnosis of MS needed to be re- evaluated.
Avatar f tn Our old dog was mauled by a cow some weeks ago. Some time after this we noticed a lump on one of her hind breasts. We took her to the vet yesterday and the vet said she has cancer. Mum and Dad think that if the cancer has spread and isn't contained to the one breast that she should be put down. I disagree. I think she still seems reasonably well and that it would be premature to put her down.
