Common Questions and Answers about Abscess cat fight


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 No runny nose, no mucus or color. Its a tabby cat. Can I give the cat something or will it go away on its own?
352757 tn?1196794281 Two weeks ago my four year old indoor cat was moved permantly to live outdoors. He received all the necesary vaccines and I treated him for flea/Tick prevention. Last night as I was petting him I noticed a small bump near the inside of his hind leg. Any idea what this might be?
Avatar f tn I have a 15 year old mostly outdoor cat, who is very territorial and obviously got into a cat fight, not sure when though. I noticed two puncture wounds under his right ear, and we have a topical herbal medication that I applied to it- called Black Claw, it help it dry up more but he kept scratching at it and opening it up. I tried salt water compressess and he wasn't too pleased with those, but it helped clean it up a bit. I purchased a small collar but he hates it and growls the whole time.
Avatar n tn I sure hope that you have enough clavamox to last 10 days. I really believe that your cat has an abscess and has an infection. He probably got bitten in the leg by the other cat, which caused it. To be honest, if your cat is favoring one leg, then the other leg hurts him too much to walk on it. It's possible that your cat is in pain. I really hope that you have enough clavamox, your cat needs it!
Avatar f tn Your cat needs a vet ASAP!!! This sounds to me like your cat has been in a cat fight and has some major infections going on. Don't let this go, this truly sounds life threatening. Your cat can lose his life to this, it is NOT going to just go away without some help from a professional. Please take our advice and get this cat to the vet now!!
Avatar m tn He has 1 small puncture wound on front shoulder and many scrapes. This is a 20lb outdoor cat who put up a good fight and avoided getting killed somehow. The cat has been resting for 24 hours now. I cleaned all wounds and the many scrapes with peroxide, betadine and neosporin. I am giving him 50mg of Penicillin twice a day. Today he accepted very little food and water. His 3rd eyelids are not up and his eyes look clear. He is very sleepy and probably in pain from the swelling of his shoulder.
Avatar f tn From what you describe, it really does sound like your cat got into a fight or possibly got hit by a car(God, I hope not). I have a lot of experience with cats-30+ yrs! The eye swelling along with the lump on the head makes me very nervous and I would take your cat to the vet ASAP. They will actually shave the area on his head to see if there is scratch, bite marks or any other injury. If it's an abscess(that's what I'm leaning towards), they will drain it and put your cat on antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Well, my best guess would be that it is an abscess. This is a sort of pocket infection that forms under the skin when some kind of wound, even a scratch, closes up too quickly and bacteria gets trapped. Cats get them a lot - it's very common. There's no reason to specifically believe that it was caused by fighting with another cat, that I know of, unless the vet recognized a cat scratch at the site. Is there any sign of anything like that? Does the lump feel hard or soft?
567724 tn?1216840033 i was wondering my cat has a red round open sore spot by its tail. he does not seem to be in pain. and i see no puss near it, and its not swolllen. and i dont see anything in its stool.
1110049 tn?1409405744 Do other people get really upset when they have to take a much loved pet to the vets? My memory of the vet I visited with my cat today was having my dear little dog put down there, and when I went into the same surgery, it was so heart wrenching. I was already distraught as my cat Smudge was poorly. He had not eaten for a few days, and was very listless, slept all the time, and I knew something was wrong.
Avatar f tn It sounds like your cat was definitely in a cat fight and got an abscess from it. I don't know if you've seen cats fight before, but they roll around and fight on their backs. If your cat was running away he would've had wounds on his back. So, apparently your cat was fighting and got clawed or bitten in the belly. I hope that your cat is fixed, because if he's not, he will get into a whole lot more fights.
Avatar f tn My cat has an ear hematoma related to severe ear- mite infestation. I went to the local vet and he quoted $650!!!! The breakdown included: Clavamox Drops (Quantity: 2) among a surgery etc. Does anyone out there think that I should forego the surgery, purchase the clamox and Revolution? FYI: she is an indoor cat that has recently started to explore the back yard. Its become part of her morning and night routine...
Avatar f tn Hi Sid I am sorry to hear about your cat and glad to help. Yes your cat should see your veterinarian. This may be a cat abscess. Abscesses are very common in cats and require drainage and antibiotics to heal. Cat abscesses generally ooze and are painful, soft swellings as you described. Intact male cats in particular,tend to fight and the result is often an abscess. Once treated this will heal and your cat will be fine.
Avatar n tn Your Friends cat has a routine abscess from a cat fight. He should be treated for this with warm compresses and a visit to your Veterinarian. He should also be checked for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS in 14 days.
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.
376449 tn?1199315088 Yesterday (January 1st 2008), he got in another cat fight......I noticed immediately upon his return indoors because he had blood dripping from a puncture wound in his right armpit area. I had left-over Clavamox on hand from his September ordeal, so I started him on that right away. I also applied Veriton cream to the area so he wouldn't lick the wound.
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 n tn My cat has a hole in his skin on each side of his head under his ears and they stink really bad. What could this be?
Avatar f tn Hi! Just joined this group today and saw your post re: vet bills. I live in Southern California and just recently had to take my cat in for an "anal abscess" which needed to be lanced and drained (gross looking fluid/pus!). Here is the itemized list for this procedure: 1. Exam and consult $46.50 2. Sedation $55.00 3. Drain/clean abscess $45.00 4. Culture of fluid $113.50 5. Antibiotic injection $65.00 6.
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.

1006035 tn?1485579497 Please do not be too tough on folks who do this -- they do not do it for the thrills or lightly, they do after careful consideration and only as a last resort. It's much better than them living outside and dying in a cat fight or killed by a neighbor's dog.
Avatar f tn They also still don't know all the ways a person can get it as they know it is on the nails of a cat and transfered from cat to cat by fleas, more common on kittens or outside cats. They now say it can be transfered from cat to human in the cats saliva. Either way his inflammation and infection levels were extremly high but cell count were normal which they said ruled out cancer as that would affect cell count.
480448 tn?1426952138 My cat got like that when she had gotten bitten by a strange cat and had an abscess on her tail that I couldn't see. I'd pat her and she'd hiss. Try looking over the hissing cat (not the other cat) and see if she has any injuries. Other possibility is that they missed an ovary when she was spayed and she is going into heat. A cat of mine had that happen once. Anyway, I would be less likely to think Caesar has the problem as Sassy.
1503643 tn?1311521838 The Er doc said my tonsils had atrophied and that it felt like there may be a blockage or some kind of abscess. So they told me to go over the hill to a larger hospital that could do a mri. I went to the other hospital. They're thoughts were the same and they did some blood work and a CAT scan. The scan showed several lymph nodes and they were not in the carotid this time. Just behind it pushing and causing the pain.
Avatar f tn They are saying her colon is leaking but when they run a cat scan (four now), they can't find any leakage. Yet they know there is a leak because of stool or some such that has been found in the fluid. They are trying to allow her colon time to heal on its own but, may have to do further surgery. They have drained the fluid from her abdominal cavity (two times).
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.
