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!
What to do about persistent infected abscess near e-tube (feline)?
Cat had jaw surgery 3-Aug and an esophagogastric tube (“e-tube”) was placed.
[[EDIT added here in brackets, the day following the original post. I was flushing the abscess this afternoon with normal saline, and wondered why the pocket wasn’t filling up with fluid to express. I then noticed the cat was SWALLOWING the fluid I was injecting into the abscess to lav it. So, now, there’s obviously a communication between the abscess and the esophagus, which tells me we really need to get this furry little fella to the vet hospital for urgent treatment. Are you familiar with this phenomenon? Can you describe what has gone wrong here, and how the problem can be avoided? Thanks a million! Now back to the original post…]]
It is now November, nearly 4 months later.
Two weeks ago at the vet’s, we noticed a reddened bulge about the size of a dime on his neck between the e-tube and the corner of his jaw. For $50 the vet took a needle, lanced what turned out to be an abscess, and drained the pus (for the cost of a sterile 18 ga needle, I could have done that myself, thank you very much!). The vet prescribed Veraflox.
At first, Veraflox seemed like the magic bullet, the abscess appeared to recede and dry up. But after 10 days, it appeared that pocket was filling up again and, sure enough, I lanced and drained it once again. There was certainly not as much pus as initially, but I was troubled the Veraflox hadn’t knocked it out entirely, so I switched him to a combination of Clavamox b.i.d. & Orbax q.a.m. yesterday. He had his morning dose today.
Whoops, that was an ineffective combination! I drained noticeably more pus today, and rather than repeat the Clavamox this evening, I gave him a dose of clindamycin.
My big concern here is whether the feeding tube must be removed in the presence of a nearby infection? That feeding tube has kept my guy fat & happy for months now, and if it’s removed, then what?
Thank you so much for your input! I am so grateful for this service!!!
I have an 8 year old indoor female cat which has what appears to be an abscess between her shoulders, but I’m not real sure about it. I have been treating it with antibiotic ointment for about 3 days now. Anyone out there have a similar situation with their cat?
