Customer Question

This is a feral cat that my sweetie and I feed and love. He has showed up with a wound on his neck/shoulder that we think he can't lick, it was healing, but now is open. What can we do for him? We are leaving on vacation and our cat sitter will follow directions. I will send you pics from my phone.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the cat bleeding a lot?
Customer: No. It's just fresh from being scabbed over.
JA: Phew. What is the cat's name and age?

JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: I don't know. I can send you pictures. Tell me how,
