Hello,My 11-year-old cat has just come into the house, and

Hello, My 11-year-old cat has just come into the house, and she has lost the last inch of hair from the end of her tail; you can see only what looks like white string, which I imagine is the bone?

Wonder if you can help, my pet mouse has a wound on the side

Wonder if you can help, my pet mouse has a wound on the side of her head, I've been to the vets with her who prescribed me some oral medication for an infection, I'm really struggling to get this into her and it's getting worse, she also has a large lump on the other side of her body which my vet described as a cyst. I don't think my vets are perticularly mice specialists and I just want some help and advise really as I'm very worried she's always scratching it and lost weight too. Is there any products to help her get better and also any tips on getting the medicine into her?
