Customer Question

I have a feral that's oozing from the nose and looks like infection. Can't catch him. I have Smz-tmp 800/160 VP 120 tabs. Would a 1/4 cut tablet or 1/8 cut tablet be okay to give him? He weighs about 5 lbs. I'm afraid he might pass if I don't get him treated with something. Thank you.

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.

Unfortunately, for a cat Scraps' size, he would need a 27th of a tablet.

If catching him is not an option, have you looked at renting or borrowing a trap from a rescue or shelter in your area?

Checking in, Kathy. How is Scraps doing?
