Abscess drainage cat

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess drainage cat


1399266 tn?1280640704 My 8 year old cat, Kupid was diagnosed with a dental abscess about a week ago and put on clindamycin 1 ml twice a day. When she started she had a pink drainage coming from her right eye and right nostril. Her eye has gotten better and her nose has slightly improved. She is still sneezing and looks terrible but she is eating on her own. This cat has failed the pre anesthesia test twice after having complications during her spay surgery so we are reluctant to put her under to pull her tooth.
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.
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).
Avatar n tn Antibiotics are rarely effective for tooth root abscess's because the infection is trapped beneath the tooth and there is no ready access for drainage, unless a hole is surgically placed to allow drainage. Sometimes the abscess is so severe that it creates it's own hole by bursting through the skin of the face to facilitate the bodies ability to remove the infection. Your vet is probably correct in wanting to extract the tooth.
Avatar n tn I don't know how old your cat is but if she is young the most likely cause is a cat scratch or bite would abscess, and since claws and teeth can penetrate deep into the skin and muscle she really needs systemic antibiotics. I am sorry your vet did not call back, because even if he could not see her today he could have called in an RX for antibiotics to hold you over for the weekend. In the mean time scrub the would very well with Betadyne scrub 3 times per day and rinse thoroughly.
1399266 tn?1280640704 My cat was diagnosed with a tooth abscess about a week ago. She was prescribed clindamycin liquid 1ml twice a day. She has been given the pre anesthesia testing several times in the past and has been unable to be anesthatised. When I took her to the vet she had a dark pink drainage from her right eye and right nostril. Her eye seems about 75% better but her nose is about the same. How long might it take to see improvement.? If she can't have the tooth removed what else can be done?
199177 tn?1490502134 Everything I just typed disappeared....argh...okay, sum up; Cats get over abcesses usually on their own, but by monday if it's not draining or very angry/red or causing pain (they usually don't), do take him to a vet. You can use a hot compress - soak a towel in hot water (and epsom salts if you have it) or a heating pad and hold it on the spot (if the cat will let you) and if it starts draining, press a warm damp towel near it to help it drain (if the cat will let you.
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.
2216535 tn?1339412493 The animal will need to be seen by a vet and it will most likely require surgical drainage of the abscess and antibiotics to fix the problem. Inflammatory swellings and scar tissue thickenings: When a pet has a spay surgery (any surgery really), a lot of trauma is done to the tissues in the surgical site (after all, they have just been cut into). Such surgical trauma sets up a massive healing response by the body.
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 You should also consider getting another opinion regarding management of the lung abscess, which is probably the source of staph in your daughter’s blood. It is often difficult and sometimes impossible to eradicate a lung abscess, without surgical drainage. As the surgeon indicated, this would be a high risk procedure but a decision against surgery also carries risk.
1512593 tn?1290270446 Cat bites often result in abscesses which require drainage and antibiotics to heal. Ear infections can affect your kittens nerves and a loss of balance is not uncommon in these cases. Your veterinarian can help to treat the abscess and ear infection. Once these issues are cleared up, your kittens balance should return to normal.
Avatar n tn Aggressive treatment with antibiotics and drainage of any abscess in the mean time. It lowers the chances of losing intestine and having colostomy and surgery can be more predictable. Of course this also requires ct scans and on going care in the interim. Please people, if you don't have a medical background be careful how you answer these questions. I'm actually in the middle of this now. Was hospititalized for 11 days fighting abscess and treating it etc.
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 f tn After a month of drainage and 1200 mg. of augmentin for 10 days, there was no improvement. When I arrived at the hospital, i was immediately given IV vangomyacin, and dilautin?1mg-2mg every 60 min. I was kept overnight with the presence of strep and staph infection via cultures and blood. I was sent home after 2 days with a diagnosis of VRSA. I was sent home with doxycyclone and pain meds to take every 4 hours.
1006035 tn?1485579497 Our local shelter won't let anyone adopt a cat and get it declawed. They even have a disclaimer that gives them the right to sue if you do. I have a small daughter so both of our cats don't have front claws. Even when I trimmed our kitten's claws he would still scratch up our daughter and destroyed our couch. Our landlords' contract also states that if we have cats the front claws have to be gone.
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 n tn I was able to spend the weekend with my cat with minimal symptoms. I'm the best I've been with her. When I am actually exposed to a cat, I can feel the spots in my right lung and right side of my nose where it's inflamed where the irritant hits.  However, this is not true on the left side anywhere in my body. All the symptoms I experience are on the right side of my body. I'm fully medicated for allergies, Xyzal, Singulair, Advair, NAsacort, Maxair, and I'm a neti pot master.
Avatar f tn I complained for awhile about this, but the doc just kept telling me it was from all the swelling in my colon. Eventually the doc did a CAT scan with an enama (yes, that dreaded word). He found that I had a collection of fluid (an infection) very near the end of my colon. The infection chose to tunnel its way out by way of my vagina. It is a small opening that you can't even feel. If you insert a tampon, it would be about a 1/4 of an inch up the tampon that I would notice the leakage.
Avatar n tn So far I have had (MRI,CAT SCAN, X-Rays, Barrium X-Ray, 24 Hour PH, Endoscope) none of these procedures have picked up this buldge. If you can give me your thoughts on this discomfort being caused by this protrusion any any advice on getting rid of this discomfort.
Avatar f tn Not just because they can perforate the ear drum, but also because they can (and very frequently *do*) irritate the ear canal and introduce infection. If the drainage is due to a CSF leak, that infection then has a clear passage to the brain where it can cause an abscess or meningitis. How do I know this? Because it happened to me during September 2010. I almost died, I had to undergo extensive ear and brain surgery, and I was in hospital for two months.
Avatar m tn The doctor that I had seen for it said it was because of extreme sinusitis due to a drainage duct being deformed, they went in and cleared it all out and fixed the duct and I had no problems for 6 months. Then wham, it came back, he said it was due to getting a cold and not getting antibiotics for it. I used to be able to lay down on my right side, then that didn't work, then take a short cat nap, then a longer nap and then sleeping overnight.
Avatar m tn Sometimes, however, you can have a sinus infection that won’t show up on a CAT scan of your sinuses. In this case, you will have drainage into your throat, called post-nasal drip, and your throat often have too much mucus in it, which can cause a mild sore throat or cough on a chronic basis. 9. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? The main symptom of sinusitis is pain. Pain in your face, pain in your head.
Avatar n tn It could also be a folliculitis or an abscess. An infected cyst is also a possibility. All these would give you a headache due to inflammation. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn of meds/dr's, I can tell you just inflammation in throat can close up ear even from drainage/overlooked fluid/sore throat/windy day stimulates drum. Get a 'Coronal CT' & get copy for yourself on All tests. Have Tympanogram ear test (quick plug in ear for 1 min suction). That will pull un-seen fluid in ear to window. It will show 'Serous fluid' if a problem, on graph-print if there. We can all get trapped edema from lack of vent/earpop.
Avatar n tn boils are often caused by infected hair folicals. Bacteria from infection form an abscess or pocket of pus. The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery.
Avatar f tn I went to see my primary care physician about 3 times… a Ear Nose and Throat doctor once… My Primary Care Physicians gave me meds for drainage and an antibiotic. It wasn’t working. I didn’t think a cure was in sight.
299940 tn?1192322967 had an MRI(normal) and just had a CAT scan. This showed I had a nasak cyst..which also showed up 2 years ago.BUT..the AT scan showed that I have Eagle's Syndrome...a very rare disirder. I see my neurologist next week to discuss blood tests...and the ENT in 3 weeks to see about the Eagle's syndrome...something to do with an elongated ligament or bone???This all started with several sinus infections that would not go away...the headaches are at least 2 times a day..
