Customer Question
I have a cat...

I have a cat that sustain a snake bite last summer. She had recovered well except for an area to her right back leg , it heals then opens again and drains green and yellow pus. Can I give her La 200?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name?

Calico

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

Ive given her penicillin before when this happened but I don't have any. We live on a farm

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I do not recommend giving LA 200 to a cat. They do not tolerate the side effects well, which include GI upset, secondary infections, and bladder stones. I recommend getting penicillin again, or another antibiotic such as oral Clavamox or injectable Convenia (both of those are specifically for dogs and cats).
