Cat has nasty wound on tail



i have a 1 year old neutered male cat, hes had flea dirt recently and has made a real mess of his tail, he must of been chewing his tail because of itching, but he seems to have gone a bit to far and has chewed out a clump of hair and pierced his skin on his tail, i saw it today and had a look at it i picked up his tail and sort of pus oozed out of it im really worried its infected what do you think i should do.
thank you Lauren.

Lauren it sounds like the wound has become infected now and needs antibiotics to clear it up and prevent it from getting any worse.

You need to take him to the vets as soon as possible as this must be very uncomfortable for your cat also.

The vet will also be able to advise about the flea issue in case your cat may have an allergic reaction to their bites which is causing the itching.

Hope he is better soon
