Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, my name is*****'ma licensed veterinarian and will do my best to help you with your questions.
I'm sorry your kitty hasn't healed well from her stitches. Are the stitches still in place or have they been taken (or chewed) out?
Do you have a picture of her tail and the wound that you could attach? It may help me give you better advice.
Oh dear, that doesn't sound good. Pets are notorious for licking and chewing at places on their body that hurt or feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately, with the bone exposed as you're describing, the best course of action is to take her back to your veterinarian for further care. Depending on the damage, she may need part of her tail amputated. Ask for an elizabethan collar (or a "cone") to keep her from licking/chewing at her tail and any surgical repair that's been done.
Do you have other questions I can answer? I'd be happy to continue our conversation. If you would be so kind as to rate our conversation, I'd appreciate the feedback and it's the only way I get credit for our conversation. I wish the best to you and your cat!
