cat abscess

August 31st, 2010, 03:05 AM
I have one of my cats that got bit by my other cat a few weeks ago.she had an abscess that burst,so they told me to clean the wound and put polysporin on it.It was healing good,had a scab untill my other cat attacked her again now her wound is opened up again like a tooth hole.I can't afford a vet so im trying to find out what i can do for it to heal.
Any advice will help as for right now i am not working and i could only afford about $20 as my other cat cost me $900.
Please i need help.
Can i get antibiotics from a vet without the vet seeing the cat?

As far as I know, you can't get antibiotics without getting a check up from your vet.

You know the old saying, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". You may be better off biting the bullet, paying a vet now for antibiotics or risk your kitty getting a very serious infection requiring hospitalization. A cat bite can cause very serious infections.

Perhaps you can work something out with your vet about paying back the fees?
