Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell- Nice to meet you. I am sorry that you are having trouble with your pet; I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you.
Please let me know when you are ready to begin.
Good morning. Are you able to send me a photo of the lump? Is it soft or hard?
Okay, and does Silver go outside? Is it painful to him when you push on the lump?
Yes, I think that this is an abscess/cellulitis, secondary to a cat bite or scratch. I would recommend taking Silver in for an examination in the morning. They will aspirate the mass, and perform cytology. They should be able to know right away what the problem is.
You are so very welcome- You are not overreacting.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any more questions regarding this problem or any future concerns.
I am here to help!
