Customer Question
My Tom scratched behind...

My Tom scratched behind his ears few days back. It hadnt healed yet. Its like a hard lump or something. Its in red color.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name and age?

Its a Maine coon. 11 Months now. 5kg now. Name is Leo

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Leo?

Just that he is an indoor cat and never goes out. Eats well, sleeps well plays well, I think it hurts because when I pat him he avoids that area

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I wonder if he broke the skin and now a small cellulitis or abscess has formed.

Are you able to send me a picture- This really helps me to evaluate.

Paul
