Customer Question

I have a older cat that is sensitive to life in general..I believe he has claw fungus. I really do not want to put him thru stress of going to vet. He's not seen a vet since he was neutered..Very healthy, never been sick for any this. Are there things I could do at home to help him. A couple of nails look inflamed and of course all the licking..Thanks
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Name is ***** ***** he is 11 years
JA: What is the cat's name?
Customer: Slam named after a drummer
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about after?
Customer: Slam is perfectly healthy other than this.
