Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.
Hello again,Sorry to hear Whisker is unwell, however I have worked out an answer for you below ...1. Actually the most likely reason for a lump on the face in a cat of your one's age group would be an abscess resulting from a bite from another cat. Cats are not the most sociable of creatures and they are prone to fighting, their canine teeth are long and sharp and covered with pyogenic [pus forming] bacteria. In fact when one cat bites another cat and really sinks its teeth in you can expect an abscess to form as a matter of course.2. If the above is the diagnosis as seems likely then there is little you can do on a home remedy basis since prescription drugs such as antibiotics are almost always required and many such lumps need lancing, so really the best advice would be to have your local vet check him over at the next opportunity.3. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Whisker's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.Regards,Dr ScottPlease be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue.
