Abscess cat treat

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess cat treat


Avatar n tn Although the tooth itself may appear to be healthy the root is already compromised. Once you treat the current Abscess with antibiotic's another abscess will probably return unless a curative treatment, such as a root canal is performed. Root canal's are rarely performed in pets since the procedure is more complex than an extraction, and therefore much more costly.
Avatar n tn I'd also ask if you have a Christmas tree with tinsel or ribbon about the house. Tinsel and ribbon is one of those things a cat will eat and then suffer the consequences. It can cause severe intestinal stress and would explain why your kitty is having the holiday blues.
Avatar f tn My cat had an abscess on his back - which I have enough experience with to treat myself. I have owned cats for 30 years. I have been able to clear and heal the wound and have been dosing him with amoxicillin. He seems to have an allergy to this antibiotic as I have discovered hes been throwing up in the basement. This is the usual drug I use to treat abscess-type infections and I want to make sure the interior infection clears up.
Avatar f tn Hi Belinda and welcome to the cat forum. You can treat the ear mites but the hematoma definitely has to be dealt with by a Veterinarian. There's just no other way around it.
Avatar f tn I was seen again last night. I had a cat scan of my face. There were no abscesses noticed but small pockets of fluid. The fluid can visibly be seen on my face as a light white area of skin. I was told to keep taking the antibiotic because it is one of the only one that treats staph aureus and strep. The ER doctor also used a gloved finger to push some of the pocketed fluid to the surface. The drainage is now brown and the pus is seen but so deep.
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 It could be an abscess of some kind from an injury received outdoors. My one cat used to develop infections from flea bites (she was very sensitive to those). Perhaps the larva you're thinking of is cuterebra (nasty little things). But you'd be able to see a pore (breathing hole) in the lump. Do not attempt to squeeze it out. It needs to be removed by someone who knows how to do that without rupturing the larva. Then again, it may be some kind of cyst.
Avatar n tn 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? Can you move it around at all (if you see what I mean) or does it stay put? If it is an infection, she should have antibiotics prescribed and most likely, an antibiotic injection.
Avatar m tn If so, he may of gotten into a scuffle with another cat. This is often how abscess happen...from an infected scratch or bite. I know hydrogen peroxide can be safely used, however, what I don't know is if that in itself will take care of it. Best of luck and please keep us posted!
517872 tn?1562054308 and I do mean SUFFERING...this cat needs to be humanly euthanized ASAP, sorry I know you'd like to try and treat him but given all the circumstances and the fact he's lost so much weight rapidly, I think there's no easy fix for him by you or by a Vet....
Avatar m tn I had my cat spayed 8 days ago and now the incision is red. Does anyone know if this is normal? Everything else is normal with her but the redness. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give me.
Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone else has problems with "picky eaters". My indoor cat eats dry food without problems (does not like inexpensive brands, but eats Friskies). Wet food is a trial and error, mostly error! It seems all she wants is to lick the juice and leaves most of the food behind and I end up throwing it away. On my limited income, that is proving to be an expensive trial and error plan. It doesn't seem to matter what brand I buy, it's the juice alone that interests her.
Avatar n tn I believe she had an abcess although the vet had indicated to me that she may have cancer. How do I treat my cat to help the abcess area heal now that it is draining?It has a very fowl odor as well. Help please.
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 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 n tn I got my kitten about a month and a half ago and when I first got her she had some abscess on her neck where I started to treat them myself and they seemed to be getting better. About three weeks ago I took her to the vet because they weren't fully healed and she seemed to have a bit of a sneeze. He then decided to put her on some anti-biotic to treat the abscess as well as the small cold she had.
Avatar n tn The bad smell is rotting flesh. No one on here can help you I'm sorry. A vet needs to treat your cat now. Tonight if possible tomorrow at the latest. I'm not trying to scare you but this is bad and needs to be treated before it gets worse and it will get worse.

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 Hi, I was rushed in for an emergency operation 3 years ago due to severe abdominal pains (suspected abscess on my appendix) where a 20cm cyst was found in my abdomen. About 1liter was drained from it and it was found only to contain lymphocytes and nothing more serious. Since then it has grown back so I had drain fitted under CT scan. This did not work due to the structure of the cyst. It has since grown even bigger and I often get stomach pains.
Avatar n tn I have to see the one dr tomorrow as I have been treated now by 2 specialists and the one who treated me last week, in a months time.. A CAT scan was also done, hence the abscess and treatment. I came out of hospital again for the second time on Friday, after having high fever - (it always start off with cold fever) I was then again put on a drip with Augmentin antibiotics. So far so good, no cold fever anymore. I was also treated with Cortisone during my stay in the hospital.
Avatar n tn 2 weeks after the appendectomy, I was re-admitted for an abscess in my lower abdomen, about the size of a grapefruit, it was drained successfully (5 more days hospitalization), and I believe it hasn't come back - the hospital did a CBC blood count test a week after I was discharged and it turned out normal. I don't "feel" the pressing abscess anymore. One problem that hasn't really gone away is the dull tenderness and heaviness I have in my mid abdomen.
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 n tn The thyroid function test came back a bit high, so the doctor referred them to an endocrinologist, who felt that even though a bit high, it was not enough to be of concern. A CAT scan revealed nothing significant. An EEG was insignificant. Her blood sugar levels are fine, both fasting and non-fasting. The family doctor has determined this to be anxiety attacks, and put the girl on 50mg of Zoloft per day.
Avatar f tn A day later I had to see our family doctor as I still was experiencing severe pain from the abscess. My family doctor used NOX gass as an aneasthetic and drained the abscess. He did more for me than what the city hospital did. I have very little confidence in the so called specialists in the city hospitals. I'm sorry that your brother passed away from this. When I had the hernia repair in 2006, I had seen my family doctor who then referred me to a urologist in a nearby city.
Avatar n tn Surgical removal of the abscess as a whole is required. The abscess capsule needs to be removed as well. Once the abscess has been removed, the inciting tooth needs to be extracted, even if it is still firmly attached. Ideally the wound should be left open and filled with antibiotics. Common treatments of the open wound include antibiotic beads, antibiotic swabs/sponges, gels, ointments and manuka honey.
