I have a 7 month old kitten named Sooki. I took her in about 3 months ago for thermal burns (a VERY bad batch of flea meds) in which the vet had to remove the rotting skin and staple her from the middle of her back down to her tail. He actually thought she wasnt going to make it. Since the surgery she's back to her normal self and has been growing like a weed. The only problem is the area right above her tail wont heal. The vet has stitched it about 20 times and has finally given up. He diagnosed her with a crappy immune system. He told me to let mother nature run its course and hope for the best. Ive used Neosporin that she licks off faster then I can put it on. The vet also doesnt want to give her a cone because he doesnt feel its necessary. Somedays the wound looks wet and other days it looks dry Im just happy the vet doesnt think she is in any kind of pain and thinks she has become accustomed to living with this open wound. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered anything like this or has any ideas of how I can help her finally heal completely...Thank you!!
