Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help. Cat fight wounds can become infected pretty quickly and ear injuries are painful. There are, unfortunately, no safe over the counter pain medications. This may be why he is hiding. Cleaning it was a great step, but if he continues to hide, I'd recommend a vet visit. They will start antibiotics and pain meds for him.
