Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Tuffy. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. How did these wounds happen? Was he bitten, or did he fall? How long have they been there? It is nearly impossible to keep a bandage on the knee. The leg is shaped like an ice cream cone, wider at the top and narrower as you go down, so bandages tend to slide down. I usually treat wounds by cleaning with gentle soap and water, and sometimes applying a topical antibiotics like Neosporin. Cats tend to be very good healers, and if a wound is not infected, it usually heals. If it is infected, he may need antibiotics to get it to heal faster. Let me know what other questions you have.

The technical aspects of this whole conversation are UNBELIEVABLY BAD! Your system did not allow me to enter into any kind of conversation. Your system kept asking for a password ***** did NOT provide any place to enter anything, or to respond to any questions. I REFUSE TO PAY FOR THIS SESSION!
