Q. Hi My cat is 16 months old, he had an accident last week and had to have a back leg amputated, I am worried its infected.
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. If you have any concern about a possible infection after such an invasive surgery I would strongly recommend to call your veterinarian and take him for a check up.
I am happy to discuss this problem further if you request a consultation (I would need further details about the appearance of the wound and general information about the clinical status of your cat to be able to be of any help).
A. Swelling, discharge, odor, lethargy, fever or loss of appetite are all symptoms of infection. You should recheck with your vet for a complete exam. Antibiotics can be prescribed by your vet if indicated.
