Pus near kittens penis

by Jess
(PA)

Ok, I have 3 week old kittens and all are fine and normal except one. he's got a perfect circle around his penis hole that looks like a blister filled with puss. Vet says bring him in. I don't have the money for that. Not to mention they treated me like shit. ANYWAY, i looked all over the internet and nothing I see is like what's going on with my kitten. HELP!

Hi
any sign of puss anywhere on a cats body is a sign of infection and needs to be treated with antibiotics, which sadly are only available from your vet.

Some vets are better than others, i know so if you are unhappy with the one you have find another. There may also be animal charities in your area which may be able to help you with the cost of any treatment.

This sounds very nasty and for such a young kitten needs to be treated as soon as possible to ensure his continued well being. At this young age their immune system is not up to scratch and so they can go down hill quickly.

I hope you are able to find a vet that will help you and your kitten soon. In the mean time just try and keep the area clean by bathing with a little warm water.

best wishes kate
