Abscess cat symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess cat symptoms


Avatar m tn Feeling very unwell, sometimes unable to get out of bed, pain on left side of face and head. Had x rays, cat scan, MRI, blood work. All normal except for slight thickness on left side. Nobody can find infection, and yet I respond to antibiotics to the point I am able to function, ei. Get out of bed, shower, go for a walk. I am currently taking ibuprophen for pain. Outside of this, I was a very healthy, active person.
Avatar n tn I've seen as many as 10 holes form for drainage for a pretty small abcess! If your cat is not showing any signs of discomfort and you don't continue to see cloudy water, then I'd say it's over and done with.
Avatar f tn I feel like I'm being strangled in my throat. Now I feel like I'm in a tunnel when I speak. All these symptoms came one after the other and I don't know what to do. I have had a CT scan, a scan of my jaw, and an MRI of my jaw. The doctors say they don't see an infection. I don't understand what is going on. What ever this is, it seems to be spreading. The last oral surgeon I saw said the symptoms may be due to different things but I don't think so. Has anyone had anything similar?
Avatar f tn Hi, about your cat whose one paw was noticeably smaller than the other because of an abscess, what did you do to heal it? I think my cat is going through a similar thing... Help would be much appreciated!
Avatar f tn Once she was diagnosed I became obsessed in finding information and other cat owners in the same position as me --- to no avail.
Avatar n tn Other causes include crohn's disease, abscess (like from a ruptured appendix) and tumors. Not all fistulas can be seen when looking into or xraying the colon. Sometimes it's necessary to look inside the bladder. If the connection is above the bladder, in the ureter (rare)it may be even harder to confirm. Having pain in the right lower abdomen suggests a process that ought to be identifiable if there is indeed a fistula: some sort of mass or inflammation ought to be visible on a CAT scan.
4105307 tn?1369535032 My 11 year old kitty with cushing's disease has survived and has been a happy cat the past 3 years. For 2 years she has been on insulin 2 times a day, currently 8 units each time. 4 days ago the vet opened a Retrobulbar abscess at the back of her mouth, the probable cause of her bulging eye and third eyelid showing. Without her normal drinking and eating her BG went down to 58 and twice we gave her karo syrup. We gave her 4 and then 6 units to adjust to the amount she would eat.
587315 tn?1333556383 It is best to err on the side of caution - at least call your vet with your cat's symptoms, or better yet, take your cat to the vet as soon as possible. The following are just a few signs that should cause you to seek veterinary attention: Ataxia - unsteady gait or staggering. Possible causes include middle ear infections, neurological disease, or poisoning. Straining to Eliminate - using great effort to urinate or defecate, especially while vocalizing.
131114 tn?1380086790 My white cat has had an on-going problem with with a black substance on the left side of her nose. Underneath it is a a shallow raw spot. There is also a leak in her left eye, that also turns reddish-black. I have taken her to the vet and he tried anti-bios, salves, drops and it helped temporarily, but he did not know what it was. her vision is fine and she doesn't seem to be in pain, but it's ugly.And maybe her nose might be uncomfortable where it's raw.
1116428 tn?1258892465 They obviously have no clue what it because they keep calling it just an abscess, a cyst, enlarged lymph node, infection, lump. No real diagnosis answer till its dissected and looked at. OH and also...It's NOT pink...
Avatar n tn but if it's spreading badly it would explain the symptoms. It could also be a sign of a stomach ailment. Even a solo indoor cat can pick up a parasite infection, it's actually not uncommon. Look in your cat's mouth for any signs of dental issues and take a close look at his stool (although that won't necessarily tell you if there's a parasite, depending on the type). Also; your cat is at an age where they start to develop some of the older cat conditions, like diabetes and hyperthyroidism.
Avatar f tn Belinda, I am in complete agreement with Linda. Just using Clavamox won't do a bit of good in in itself alone. The clavamox was included in the breakdown to be used AFTER the surgery to avoid infection. Here is something I got from a google search which I hope will help. This condition is very painful for kitty and unless it's very small (in which case, it can be drained so this site says) it looks like unfortunately you're looking at surgery.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, I have been browsing this site for a while now and its helped me during my attacks. Fisrt let me start out how this started, i am currently 17 years old, 5' 10" 175 lbs. about 4 years ago I had a panic attack out of no where, my first one, this included major chest pins and impending death. Ever since that day i wold have an attack at night, i was afraid of being alone at night for some reason.
Avatar f tn I can't live the way I am, continual breakout and other symptoms and too much Benadryl (most days 200-350mg per day). This level of bad hives+symptoms and heavy Benadryl has been going on since mid November 2007. It has gone on so long due to waiting to hear from health insurer if I'm insured (took weeks to get back to me; I'm not insured) and due to weather (storms). My locale is Southern California, mountainous area at 4500 feet.
Avatar n tn My symptoms are progressing, as I get these intermittent feelings of extreme muscle weakness in my arms and/or legs, which come with severe nausea and the need to have a bowel movement. This happens several times a day, and I am also having great difficulty sleeping due to twitching, feelings of weakness, and internal vibration feelings in my arms.
Avatar n tn I have had reoccurant uti like symptoms for a few months..all my cultures show no infection just white blood cells..I've seen a urologist who did a bladder ultrasound and cystoscopy both normal..I saw my gyn who did a pelvic ovaries were normal..he did not give me a ultrasound though..should I persue further testing since this could be a symptom of ovarian cancer? I am 30yr..also I did have a pelvic ultrasound 6 moths ago for something else and my ovaries were normal size.
Avatar n tn I was only out of work for 2 weeks and during that time was somewhat out and about. Symptoms of a new illness presented in March, starting with a canker sore, and progressing to flu like symptoms. I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree).
Avatar f tn I have been having some very weird and worrying symptoms. I have been getting a very bad burning and swollen feeling in the left side of my head down into my cheek. It's not there when i wake up..it comes during the day and cold air especially really aggravates it...it almost throbs it gets so sore and burns so badly. Does this sound familiar to anyone or any suggestions to what it could be...i'm very worried it's something serious like brain tumor or MS or such.
3183753 tn?1344639044 I have had cramping and pms symptoms for two months. No bleeding in between periods, but a clear discharge which is new to me and happens daily. My period happens and then I think the pms is will finally be over and it's not. The next day I have cramps, pain, discharge, tender breasts, emotional, and back pain. My doctor ordered me to have a vaginal ultrasound and the radiologist told me to see a gynecologist.
Avatar n tn Mass on the liver can be due to numerous causes like haemangioma, hepatocellular cancer, metastatic cancer, liver cell adenoma, pyogenic abscess, amoebic abscess, cyst, focal nodular hyperplasia, hydatid disease, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis etc.The symptoms can be related to many of these conditions mentioned above. Liver haemangioma is also a common condition which is usually discovered during a test or procedure for other condition. But it is usually asymptomatic.
Avatar f tn Now it is March and my husband has the same symptoms he went to the Dr and now they are saying it is cat scratch fever even though we have but maybe on or two symptoms that are common in cat scratch. I was very very ill.
Avatar n tn Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine lists 54 causes of feline anisocoria. Although your cat has no symptoms now other symptoms could develop over time, unless your cat was born with the condition and you never noticed it before?
Avatar f tn I posted a number of weeks back about having OVCA symptoms. Since then, The TVU shows really small ovaries and CA-125 is very low. My doctor is not buying that. He gave me Librax in an attempt to calm lower abdomen pain. He has shown a great deal of respect for my perception in this and feels that this could be early stage OVCA. After I use the Librax for a few weeks, he will do a CAT scan if the symptoms are still present. Bartholin's gland cancer has now come into the mix.
Avatar m tn My name is Hank about six weeks ago I had an abscess the size of a large credit on my right arm near the crease of your arm I had it removed surgically and everything went fine with the recovery over a four week period at the point of seeing the doctor to get the stitches out I complained of a pain in my left elbow which I felt was due to a prior surgery 10 years ago which was called tennis release Tendons are reattached into the bone area and everything went fine with the surgery as well I've
Avatar n tn I'm 71 years old and weigh 100 lbs.

Avatar n tn Adhesions don't show up on tests, and since you don't yet have a fully obstructed section of intestine (as evidenced by the normal bowel sounds) you may only be able to treat the symptoms the best you can. If your symptoms escalate to the point that you're very bloated, in a lot of pain and vomiting, then you may be a surgical candidate for adheliolysis surgery.
Avatar n tn It would be helpful to know of other previous early symptoms and possible medications used. However, from what you've said, this could indicate a temporal lobe seizure, possible formed by a brain abscess or a viral infection like herpes encephalitis. The condition is most probably autoimmune. Seeing as how the MRI and CAT scans came back normal, it is probable that an exterior agent caused the condition and a short relapse period would then occur masking possible signs.
Avatar f tn After a renal ultrasound I was told they found a nodule on my right kidney. My Dr ordered a CAT Scan. They said they found a nodule on the right kidney & a fatty liver. My Dr said not to worry & have another ultrasound in 3 months to see if the nodule is getting bigger & asked me if I wanted a MRI to check on the fatty liver. Shouldn't he know whether that is needed? What are the risks of a fatty liver...is there a treatment or something that should be done?
Avatar n tn My girlfriend has no thyroid. I wonder if she transferred a fungus to me. Thursday i am taking a cat scan....but i had to push the urologist to give me the cat scan.
Avatar f tn These include rabies, plague, ringworm, internal and external parasites, toxoplasmosis, bartonellosis (formerly known as cat scratch fever), allergies to cat hair, and secondary bacterial infections from cat scratches and bites. (refer: http://www.afpmb.org/pubs/tims/tim37.htm#purpose) Please let me know what your doctors think about meningitis and please keep me posted. Let me know if there is anything else.
