I am having a problem with Uno-back in December I noticed he had developed a small scab on his back and just thought that it was a small bite wound from one of the other kitties or a claw mark. We were in the process of moving so I kinda did not pay as much attention as I should have. In early Jan. I noticed that it had turned into a medium sized open sore-so I took him to the vet and she said it was a skin infection and to treat it with an anti-biotic cream for 2 weeks. I did-no change at all. I had let it go for a few more weeks thinking maybe it would get better-no such luck. I took him in to work with me on Friday and had him sedated for a teeth cleaning and while he was under we did a skin scrape and a fungal culture. Basically it was still a skin infection, so we chose to treat it with the cream again and oral antibiotics. I have yet to keep the ointment on for more that a minute before he licks it off and the oral meds don't get anywhere near his mouth-my husband and I just get war wounds instead. On Sunday I noticed that he has developed another sore further down along his spine and today he has started vomiting. I am at my wits end as to what to do for him, he won't let us treat him yet he continues to get worse. Any ideas on what I can do different or what may have caused this???
