Hello and welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
Please tell me, how is Zapper in himself? Still quite bright and eating?
Still eating, but subdued, he's an outdoor cat and doesn't take well to being inside, let alone owning the 'cone of shame'!. Hole of wound is deep and when turning him upside down a red (bright red) stained water fluid can dribble from the hole of the wound. Do you wish I send you two pictures?
here are two pictures of the wound
thank you for your very prompt and thorough advice. Sorry you cannot supply cat antibiotics.
