Is this serious?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I found a cat the other day who has no teeth, is very thin and has a bump on his side. We have been taking care of him and he has gained a little weight from being here but the bump on his side seems to have been cut open. It's leaking out alot of fuild.

Should i go to the vet tomorrow with him? or is there a way for me to do a home treatment and see if it gets better before we go to the vet.

We are kinda tight on money so i'm trying to a way for me to help him with out a vet.

Any help is appericated Thanks.

First of all, thank you for taking care of this kitty! Second of all, the poor baby absolutely needs to see a vet. The bump on his side could be a number of things, but the fact that it's open & leaking fluid is very concerning. He should get to the vet as soon as possible.

Please keep us updated, and let us know how he's doing!

Thank you for taking care of this porr kitty!

I would definitely take this little kitty to the vets, they need to be examined and get the correct treatment to make them feel better! Vets will often work out a payment plan to help you!

Please make that vet visit and let us know how things are!

I know how tight money can be but this kitty sounds like it really does need a vet quickly. It could well have an abscess form a bite or injury that needs professional cleaning and antibiotics. But also there could be other things wrong. Thank you for caring for the poor thing.

You may be able to pay a vet in installments, and if you mention that its a rescued cat they may give you a discount. Try googling "no kill cat shelters" in your area, and call several of them, especially the small ones who dont have famous names like ASPCA and ask them if they have a good low cost vet they can recommend and could they possibly help get you the "rescue rate".
