By the principle of Occam's Razor any feral who presents in that fashion has been bitten and you're seeing a ruptured bite wound abscess. Depending upon the extent of that abscess I might simply lavage it with the over the counter chlorhexidine (Hebiclens in your local pharmacy) twice daily until no more pus formed or for more severe abscesses, sedate my patient, flush the abscess with chlorhexidine, debride away any devitalized tissue, leave the wound open to heal, and administer a broad spectrum antibiotic either by injection or a prescribed oral.Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
