    Poor Shadow...Vet Update!

    Yesterday Shadow and Mini got in a little fight, immediately afterwards we checked them both out and no injuries were noticed. When Shadow came up to eat last night we noticed her face was very swollen I'm pretty sure its because of the fight, I don't know what else it could be from. Is there anything we can do for her, I feel so bad...





    She is acting 100% normal, but you can still tell its a little painful.

    Of course, taking her to the vet and having it checked out would be the very best thing to do for her.

    I'm not sure what you should do. Is it an open cut or a swollen bump?

    I hope Shadow feels better soon!! ((hugs)) For you, Shadow.

    Oh no poor girl. Yous are in my thoughts.
    Are there any puncture marks or anything? Anything wrong with the inside of her mouth? Without knowing what caused it it's hard to tell what to do about it.
    Soar high & free my sweet fur angels. I love you Nanook & Raustyk... forever & ever.

    I hope the vet visit goes well with it. That's how Maggie got a salivary gland cyst (Belle got irritated and bit at her head/neck pretty hard before I could get them separated). If you want to see more info about that situation, I gave a very lengthy explanation of how they occur and the treatment Maggie had, etc. in the 'bump on dog's face' thread, also here in the dog health section. Best wishes for a quick recovery!

    If kitty will let you I always bathe the wound and dry it well and put Medi Pulv on it, this is a antibacterial powder used for humans, but is perfectly safe for cats, I checked it out with my vet, I have even cleared up many a bad wound on my older cat, it might just help the healing process, not sure if it is available in your country but there might be something similar, i swear by it, has healed many nasty grazes on my kids as well, and abcesses on the cat too, good luck hope all goes well at the vets.

    Thanks guys. We are going to the vet in about an hour. Yesterday it started leaking blood and pus and it has gone down a considerable amount. I looked in her mouth, everything looks normal. I think that there is a small punture wound, and thats where its leaking. I'll let you guys know what the vet says

    Sounds a bit like the puncture wound has formed an abcess, still if the stuff is coming out that is usually a good sign in my experience, probably just need some antibiotics to clear it up properly, let us know how shadow is doing.

    Well, just back from the vets. It was crazy! We took all of them because we weren't sure who was due for what But we found out that Shadow is actually only turning 10 April 2nd...not 11 Oh well, thats even better

    He said it was most likely caused by the fight...and she's on antibiotics now...

    So happy to hear that the vet thinks it will go away with the antibiotics. Good for Shadow (and good for your pocketbook too)!

    WOW, I was going to say that I think she will be fine. And then I read on and saw what VT had to say and ultimately what you've gone through. Good thing no-one listens to me!!! Good luck and I hope Shadow feels better soon.
