Customer Question

Hi, my cat has a wound hole in his left shoulder. I brought him to the vet, and they said it's from a cat fight, but the procedure was way out of my budget. Is there any home procedures I can do to heal this?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your cat bleeding a lot?
Customer: no
JA: Phew. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Jax and he will be a year next week.
JA: How old is Jax?
Customer: He will be 1 years old next week.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jax?
Customer: No, he's still active. He just keeps licking the wound.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, I'm Dr. Bonk. I'm sorry to hear about Jax's troubles. I have some questions for you about the wound: Is it a puncture or gash? Is it open and draining or forming an abscess? How big is it?
