Is this cat wound infected
1 Attachment(s)

First time posting here :)
One of my two cats recently got wounded, I've attached a picture, it's just outside her ear (she never had much fur here).
How to tell if it's infected? She does not seem in pain and behave like usual, she scratches it a bit. We clean it with a wet swab every day.

I'm not sure how she got that. Probably a fight with here brother. Their the same age, 9 month. They started fight/playing about a month ago.

She never get the upper hand, but she doesn't get totally dominated and she the one that comes back to play.

I guess I'll watch for not too much fighting the next weeks.

Thanks for the help!

Hard to tell from the picture but it doesn't look like it.

Things to watch for:
- pain/tenderness around the area
- area hot to the touch
- swelling
- redness
- oozing any colour other than clear or red

Keep up the daily wet swab cleaning.

Check if your vet clinic has the option to email a picture to them to see if they think you should bring your girl in.
