Bunny has a 0.5cm wound

This afternoon, at about 4pm, I noticed pink droplets on the floor in the room. It was puzzling and I didn't think of checking the cats. The droplets were not bloody; just pinkish liquid. There has been vomiting going on due to hairball inside and outside, so I brushed the droplets aside thinking it could be some vomit.

It was only after 6pm that Ming-Yi came back and carried Bunny that she noticed that Bunny was wet on his underside, below his armpit.

I checked and there found a wound of 0.5cm in diameter. It looked deep too. For first-aid, we cleaned the wound with Path-Away and sprayed some on it. Then I gave Bunny Vetri DMG and Transfer Factor.

I called three vets but all three had closed. So we could not take Bunny to the vet's today.

The wound actually looks dry now, but there is a soggy mass surrounding the wound and a tiny smaller wound beside the deep one. I can't think of how he could have got that wound. I only remember Bunny threatening Tiger earlier in the afternoon. There was no fight at that time, just noise.

Just now, I squeezed the surrounding area and some pinkish liquid was excreted from it. I hope I can squeeze out all the water (it's probably from the injured cells) so that it won't get infected.

We will take him to the vet's first thing tomorrow morning.

Of course he licks it, but not furiously. Path-Away is non-toxic so that's okay.


His appetite is as good as ever, so that's a plus point too.

If infection sets in, it would take sometime. I hope by tomorrow, we can get proper veterinary care for the wound.

I guess it doesn't look that bad, but I would want that soggy mass properly treated, of course.

I remember years ago, Bunny had to undergo lancing (under general anaesthesia due to a soggy mass that got infected). That was during the days when he was free-roaming in our old neighbourhood.

Bunny is FIV+ and 8 years old, hence, all injury, no matter how tiny, is not to be taken lightly.

Till tomorrow then...
