Our cat got in...

Our cat got in his cage arou nd a month ago and he had some scratched by his eyes

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?

He doesn't look like he will make it

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

No my cat gotten into my bearded dragons cage

Hello and welcome. I apologize that no one responded to you sooner. Different experts come on line at various times. I just logged in, and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with over 20 years of experience keeping reptiles. I'm sorry to hear of this accident.
Do you still need help? All I can do is give you a first aid measure and try to find a vet for you. Unfortunately, cat scratches and bites are very prone to infection, which becomes life threatening. From your description, your beardie is in critical condition.If you'd like me to locate a vet, please give me your location. Thank you.

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

JustinKernersville, NC

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
