cat wound

my female cat had a bad wound on her neck it was bleeding.

The vet gave her antibiotics and after one week it healed but now she has the same one on her other side of the neck and between her leg...i dont know what to do apart from applying antisebtics and cover it...?

Answer by Kate
Sounds to me like a bite of some sort. If she is goes out then this is not unusual as cat fights can break out from time to time.

if it is a bite your cat should see a vet for some more antibiotics as cat bites can become infected.

Definitely try to clean up the wounds as best you can and perhaps keep her in for a day or two to give it time to heal.

best wishes Kate
