Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
It needs to be determined if this is a break or something less permanent like an abscess that needs to be drained. Outdoor cats, especially if still intact, are prone to getting into spats with other cats that result in bite wounds that can become infected. I would highly recommend an exam for Tiger to determine what has happened. If this is a break, the bone may need to be set and casted/splinted, pinned or even amputated. If this is an abscess, sedation is often needed and the wound to be lanced and drained.
