Customer Question

My cat had a cut on shoulder. I washed with antibacterial soap and put neosporin on it. Now it is ozing white liquid. What does that mean?

Hello again and thanks for waiting.I have worked out an answer for you below ...1. This is very short and to the point reply but it 100% covers your question : If the wound is oozing white liquid then there is very high degree of possibility that the wound is infected in the depths of the tissues. If this is the case then washing the surface and applying the likes of Neosporin is unlikely to be effective as they will not penetrate to the seat of the problem. 2. What should you do about it? : The chances are your cat needs a course of antibiotic tablets perhaps the likes of Amoxycillin or Clavamox, as these are prescription drugs this may mean a visit to your vet. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
