I have a 15 y.o. cat who was attacked by a feral cat and I treated 2 abscesses and they healed–now 2 weeks later one has re-abscessed. I’m a retired doc on a fixed Army pension and vets here in Hawaii charge $100 just to be seen, not including procedures! Can I puncture the abscess with a sterile scalpel and drain it myself again or did I miss something? The local pet store sells OTC Abx. Would I treat as a person–same staph type Abx?
My cat has abscess on the face how i can cure at home? Is it possible her to give anti biotic for human?
about how much is it to treat an abscess on a cat?
Morning, I have a golden retriever called Roxy who developed a abscess following a anti inflammatory injection (in her neck) – this was incised under GA and left a MASSIVE seroma. Many months later it eventually closed only to reform again and rupture. The vet gave a course of antibiotics when the discharge changed colour from a light pink to a dark red colour and the exudate improved to a lighter colour. It is still a very deep sinus. I have been dressing it twice a day with boiled cooled water and two drops of tea tree oil, and then packing it with a natural bee wax ointment and a Betadine solution mix. Recently I took her back for another opinion because the lump was not improving, which in all honesty was a nightmare vet trip. The vet stuck her hand into the sinus and scraped and scraped – the return was clots of blood that looked like liver and the consultation room looked like a slaughter house. They said that if it didn’t heal over the next few weeks she would need to have surgery again and they would do a ‘running stitch’ to close it from the inside. I am not going this route! I vowed that would be the last vet trip I take her too. It was so traumatic for her and for me (I am a nursing sister so I can stomach most things, but this was too brutal and too close to my heart). So the twice a day dressing continues. I have been working away at this for about 6 months now and it is a huge strain on me, washing bandages and dressing whilst working a fulltime job and caring for my child and house. I do not want to give up, but I have moments when this is what I want to do, I suppose this is normal. She is 11 years old. This morning it seems to be smelling like infection is brewing again… 🙁 Should I do Milton solution irrigations? What can I do to aid healing? Any advice gratefully received, I am desperate.

My dog had surgery 3 days ago to remove an abscess. Then he was sent home with a drain. Today he had the drain removed; 3 hours ago. Where the stitches are above the drain hole has become swollen; a ping pong ball sized ball right where the stitches are. It was not this way before the drain was removed! Do I need to be concerned. My vet isn’t open until Monday and today is Saturday night
I think my cat has an abscess. She’s had a bump on her side for a few weeks with some scabs.
Came home today and saw one was open with fresh blood. Placed her in my lap and took a look at it closely. It started to ooze puss and blood. Then 2 more wounds opened up. So now she has 3 open deep purple wounds. Not sure what to do. But cleaned with hydrogen peroxide and cover it with some corona and a non adhesive pad wrapped with coban.
Anybody know what I should do from here?
I read that she probably needs to be seen and get it drained and have drain tubes placed and put under anesthesia… I don’t have much money.. at all.. help me. ☹️
How much will it cost to drain an abscess on a cats face?
I am currently located in Ukraine. I have been to the vet a few times already for my cat’s abscess. All of the advice I have found online in dealing with a cat’s abscess tells me to ask for a vets advice, but that is very difficult to do where I am located. How can I heal my cat’s abscess at home without antibiotics? Is this possible? Her abscess burst and now 4 small holes have appeared. I clean them with saline/salt water and I try to push some of the puss out of them as much as I can. I put a warm cloth on her face a few time a day, which made the holes appear. The images are uploaded are from the day I found her in a dumpster, the day she scratched the abscess and it burst, showing a single large hole, the other day, and today when four small holes appeared. Is it getting better or worse? Am I doing the right procedures? Any advice? Thank you so much!!! (Please excuse the makeshift cone of shame, I have had to be pretty resourceful here)
My 6 year old neutered male cat, Stephano, has gotten an abcess on his lower back. I noticed the wound as a scab that caused him pain when i touched it, so i smelled the wound for more information. it smelled terrible! i picked off the scab to reveal a small hole in his skin filled with pus. the hole itself i would say is about half a centimeter or less. My mother is a nurse and she applied Mupirocin 2% to the open wound after cleaning it with a damp cloth and squeezing the pus out. I still have an e-collar from when my other cat got spayed, he’s wearing that now. The wound still smells putrid, i want to clean it better but it seems to really hurt him, he barely let me trim the hair around the wound. Am i doing the right thing for him? should i take him to the vet? he is still eating,and his ears aren’t hot or even warm. Thank you for reading this and i hope you can give some advice!
