Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hi, my name is***** and I am a veterinarian.I'm so sorry that your kitty got in a fight. Do you have a photo of the wounds for me to check out?Since they are healing on their own, I am more worried about some of the kitty diseases that can be transmitted by cat bites like feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) - which is similar to HIV in humans and also Feline leukemia virus. These 2 viruses can be tested by your regular veterinarian with a simple blood test.Often, cat bites turn into abscesses where you will notice a firm swelling, bad odor and eventually drainage of yellow pus from the bite site. If this happens, you will need to go to your veterinarian to get antibiotics.
Of course! Feel free to send me photos if you have them or if you think of any follow up questions, please let me know. Also, please provide a positive rating if I have helped you today. Thank you!
Ok! So good to hear!
