Customer Question

My cat has a sore on her belly. We recently moved.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Ginger; one year.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ginger?
Customer: Her lips look dark. Her eyes were running, but that has cleared up. I had the work being done (painting, etc) stopped so that she could relax a bit.

Thank you. When you get a chance please upload a photo or I'm helpless to assess her skin.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Prior research indicated she was anxious because of the move and licked until irritated. I was attempting to get general information from this site. I'm sorry you're not able to be of service to me!
