and I just recently lost my job. Can't afford to go to a vet. Just so you all know I'm not one of those jerks who get pets they can't take care of...I've had her for 9 years and never missed a shot, heartworm treatment or flea dip....extenuating circumstances right now. so NEway I look at her today and see blood on her leg...so I look closer and see it's an abcess. A big one. On her thigh. I didn't even know it was there until today! So can anyone tell me how to help my baby???
If you have a large bucket, soak her abcess in epsome salts and water as hot as she can stand it. Use triple antibotic ointment on it after. make sure you clean it EXTREMLY WELL. That should help.She really should have some anibiotic pills also, so I would contact the vet and see if he would do payments.Any abcess can be dangerous without proper treatment
Every abcess I have ever seen either on an animal or human required antibiotics to heal. It is worth a shot to ask your vet to accept payments. Some vets will even prescribe the antibiotics to you without going in if you are a regular customer.
