Expert:  Dr. B. replied 9 months ago.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Are you seeing any pus or smelling any odor with this?

How deep are the scratches?

Is she on any treatments just now? Or have any know health issues?

Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so, this will let me see what you are seeing. To post them online, you can use the paperclip icon on the tool bar above your text box. Or if you can't see that on your computer/phone, then you can post them on any other site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, imgur, etc) and paste the web link here for me to check.

Left my phone number also and no one called or answered my pleas. took her in this morning at 7:30 she was given 6 injections, they washed & wrapped the wound area, sent me home with 5 bottles of asst. meds. She was running a high fever also.
