Customer Question

Cat has lump on front right leg that bleeds when squeezed. Thought it was a pimple or a blood blister - but it hasn't gone away in months.

Hello,
I am sorry Tia has this lump. It is most likely a benign cyst or papilloma which is like a wart.
We usually do not remove these unless they are causing discomfort because they almost always grow back.

You can apply manuka honey. It is a great healer:

If you cannot find it in a health food store you can use any raw honey.
Please let me know how Tia is doing. Just press reply and I will be here for you.
Love,
Terri
