Thank you very much for the extremely helpful timely response.Hi. Only have a minute.
If it was my cat with a wound like that, I would stop applying anything to it. Bandaging cats is almost impossible without making things worse. If using clay litter, switch to paper. If he is chewing it, he needs a cone to stop him. If you don’t have one, you can make one out of a paper plate.
It is very important to not stress him. I know, there is a fine line between doing more damage than good. It’s hard to know where that is.
Get him back to the vet ASAP.
Regarding the missed meds, it doesn’t matter. What is done is done and you can’t go back. Just give on schedule from now on, if you can.
When you've got more time, I have a couple more questions.
1. I thought I was bad at bandaging cats. Thanks for letting me know it's hard in general. I thought it's important to close wounds so that they don't get infected, especially since he's immunosuppressed. What do I do about that?
2. Does the wound in the image confirm that it's fleas? Are there any ideas or conclusions that can be drawn from just a look?
I'll do the litter switch, the cone and the vet visit today morning and update. Thank you for the reassurance, the relief and the immense support.
